Lizzo is an active advocate for reproductive rights. Along with Live Nation, the 34-year-old Grammy winner has donated $1 million in proceeds from her upcoming concert tour to Planned Parenthood.
Not only did Lizzo recall a woman’s right to plan her life the other day, after the Supreme Court’s decision, which gives states the right to enact their own abortion laws, many of the country’s subjects did so simultaneously.
In particular, the termination of pregnancy was banned by Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri and South Dakota. Protests broke out immediately in the United States, and President Joe Biden opposed the decision, which he called “the application of extremist ideology and the tragic error of the Supreme Court.”
However, Democrats may simply play this women’s rights concern card to increase their rapidly declining ratings. Anyway, many celebrities have spoken out against these laws, including Lizzo.
“I’m donating $500,000 from my next round of Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights,” she wrote on Twitter. She later spoke about her charitable contributions while accepting an award at the Hollywood Reporter Impact Awards in Beverly Hills.
“I just want to say that I make music because I wanted to make people feel something, and I strongly believe that if you can make people feel something, you can make people act,” Lizzo said.
“We always seem to be in a humanitarian crisis, like a global pandemic, or institutional racism, or lawmakers’ ban on our bodies. And it can be a terrifying world.”
The artist encouraged the audience to join her. “I also want to say that it is good to do good. It is not good to be a bad person.
God placed me here to do good, and I am only here to spread good as much as possible; I hope you are inspired to do the same.
I don’t just do this for myself; I’m doing this for the whole world and to show the world what the procedure looks like. “Because I’m with this business,” Lizzo added.
