Planned Parenthood’s #BansOffMyBody campaign is the latest initiative to raise awareness about the harm of bans on access to safe, legal abortion and affirm that no one is free unless they control their own body.
As part of the campaign, nearly 140 artists signed on to the “Band Together, Bans Off” ad, which appears in the August 24th edition of Billboard magazine. Those supporting the cause include LIZZO, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Beck, Billie Eilish, Bon Iver, John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato, G-Eazy, HAIM, Troye Sivan, Macklemore, Hayley Kiyoko, Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, The 1975, Kacey Musgraves, Carole King, Dua Lipa, Meghan Trainor, and more.
“Those who signed are urging their social media followers to take action against these bans, and learn more about the threat to safe, legal abortion access in communities across the country,” reads a press release from Planned Parenthood. “Specifically, the artists are asking their supporters to add their name to a national petition calling for an end to the abortion bans, with a goal of collecting half a million signatures by the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January 2020.”
Planned Parenthood will also join music festivals like Made in America in Philadelphia and Music Midtown in Atlanta to educate fans about these harmful abortion bans and drive action to support access to sexual and reproductive healthcare.
