Musicians Providing Platforms for the Rights of Those with Uteruses
Roe v. Wade protected the constitutional rights of access to abortion in America from January 22, 1973, until June 24, 2022, when the supreme court overturned the ruling, reversing the constitutional right and jeopardizing women’s health and people with uteruses. Several artists in the music industry stood up against the Supreme Court by donating, setting up fundraisers, or speaking out against this decision.
MP3 MAG compiled a list of artists in various genres dedicated to protecting abortion rights. Read below for the ongoing list.
The Maze Guardian artist pledged to send fans unreleased songs in exchange for donations of five or more dollars to Planned Parenthood. Just send a receipt of your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive five unreleased tracks.
