Nearly 140 musicians have joined forces with Planned Parenthood after the non-profit organization launched the #BansOffMyBody campaign to support reproductive rights and raise awareness on abortion bans. A-list celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, and Demi Lovato, have signed a petition to protest the growing number of strict abortion laws that are currently being passed in the United States.
Planned Parenthood also plans to spread the word at Jay-Z’s Made in America Festival in Philadelphia this weekend and Billie Eilish’s headlining event, Atlanta’s Music Midtown Festival, on September 14th and 15th. In a press release, the 17-year-old singer, who is the youngest signee, spoke out in support of the organization:

Other stars, including Dua Lipa, Tove Lo, and Norah Jones, also voiced their support via Twitter in an effort to encourage fans to get involved in the movement.
