Joy Villa may be more renown for her controversial red carpet statements than her discography — and she shows no signs of slowing down.
The conservative singer-songwriter — who has hit the Grammys in gowns with “Make America Great Again” and “Build the Wall” slogans — resurfaced on the Daytime Emmys red carpet on Sunday in a dress espousing her anti-abortion views.
The Desi Designs Couture gown was embellished with images of storks carrying babies, while its bright green skirt featured the line “Pro-life is pro-woman.”
According to an Instagram post by Villa, the dress is in honor of the anti-abortion organization Save the Storks, “a charity my husband and I financially support ... for only $35/month you can save the unborn and their mothers.”
She continued, “Abortion is so often only spoken about as a ‘women’s right’ but I stand here to stand up for EVERY WOMAN and her right to life!”
She also spoke of once being “pressured” to get an abortion, but instead arranged an open adoption for the baby girl she delivered.
Villa has previously worn outfits slamming abortion rights. She attended the 2018 Grammys in a dress that featured a hand-painted baby and a rainbow uterus, while her purse read “Choose Life.” And in March, she supported the premiere of the anti-abortion film Unplanned wearing a hot pink latex dress that read “F**k Planned Parenthood.”
Unsurprisingly, her latest outspoken ensemble has caused quite the stir. Villa tweeted that she was harassed while posing on the red carpet.
While likeminded supporters are cheering her red carpet stunt, Villa’s anti-abortion dress has also prompted backlash from critics of Scientology, which she practices.
