After several U.S. states passed anti-abortion laws over the past few months, Ariana Grande has shown her support for women’s rights through a donation to Planned Parenthood.
Acoording to People, Ariana donated around $250,000 of proceeds from her June 8 Sweetner World Tour concert in Atlanta, Georgia to Planned Parenthood, a non-profit that provides sexual health care in the U.S. and worldwide.
“Ariana Grande’s generous donation comes at a critical time — in Georgia and across the country, anti-women’s health politicians are trying to ban all safe, legal abortion,” Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Dr. Leana Wen told People.
“This is not what the American people want, nor is it something they’ll stand for. Thanks to inspiring support like hers, Planned Parenthood can continue to fight back — in the courts, in Congress, in state houses, and in the streets — against these dangerous attacks on people’s health and lives. We are so grateful to Ariana for her longstanding commitment to supporting women’s rights and standing with Planned Parenthood to defend access to reproductive health care. We won’t stop fighting — no matter what.” Dr. Wen said.
Ariana is set to play her next show on her Sweetner World Tour tonight in Pittsburgh before playing several shows throughout New York in the coming week. To find out more about her upcoming concerts and tickets, be sure to check out her official website.
