Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Billie Eilish, and Selena Gomez are among the 160 young artists who this Friday have come together to defend the right to abortion in the United States before the plans of the Supreme Court to eliminate it.
They have done so in a full-page advertisement published in The New York Times, in which they condemn the foreseeable repeal of the 1973 ruling in the case “Roe v. Wade”, which would mean the end of abortion protection at the federal level and that would leave in the hands of each state its regulation.
According to a draft leaked this month, a majority of Supreme Court justices are in favor of ending that precedent, although for now there is no final decision.
“The power to plan our own futures and control our own bodies depends on our ability to access sexual and reproductive health services, including abortion,” the message posted by artists and influencers states.
The Supreme Court’s decision, they stress, would rob a whole new generation of power, so all of them who pledge not to give up.
Among the signatories, mostly women, are Kendall Jenner, Olivia Rodrigo, Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello, Ariana DeBose, Meghan Trainor, and Phoebe Bridgers.
The announcement is part of a campaign promoted by the non-profit organization Planned Parenthood, which operates the largest network of reproductive health clinics in the United States and which on Saturday called for a day of action in which demonstrations and acts of support for abortion rights are expected throughout the country.
