On May 7, Georgia grew to become one in every of a number of states to go a so-called “heartbeat bill.” The legislation bans abortions as early as six weeks right into a being pregnant (earlier than many ladies know they’re pregnant). Instead of boycotting performances within the state in protest of the brand new legislation (as many entertainers have completed), Ariana Grande carried out in Atlanta on June 8. She then donated a portion of the proceeds from her “Sweetener World Tour” efficiency to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, TMZ and People report. She donated $250,000, in keeping with the experiences.

Dr. Leana Wen, President/CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, shared the next assertion:

Ariana Grande’s beneficiant donation comes at a crucial time—in Georgia
and throughout the nation, anti-women’s well being politicians are attempting to
ban all secure, authorized abortion. This isn’t what the American folks
need, neither is it one thing they’ll stand for. Thanks to inspiring
help like hers, Planned Parenthood can proceed to battle again—in
the courts, in Congress, in state homes, and within the streets—in opposition to
these harmful assaults on folks’s well being and lives. We are so
grateful to Ariana for her longstanding dedication to supporting
ladies’s rights and standing with Planned Parenthood to defend entry
to reproductive well being care. We received’t cease combating—it doesn’t matter what.
