Phoebe Bridgers is joining a group of public figures in speaking out in defense of abortion rights.
On Tuesday afternoon, the singer-songwriter shared on social media that she had a miscarriage for the last time, shortly after starting her Reunion Tour in St.
“I went to Planned Parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill,” Bridgers wrote on Twitter. “It was easy. Everyone deserves that kind of access.”
Bridgers also included a link to an article published Tuesday by The Cut titled: “Donate to an abortion fund now.” The article includes links to various advocacy groups and reproductive health organizations across the US that are ranked by their home states’ legislature likely to prohibit abortion.
The four-time Grammy nominee shared her story a day after a leaked draft opinion showed the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade, a landmark decision that expanded access to abortion nationwide.
After Politico published the draft opinion on Monday evening, it immediately sent shock waves through the Internet. Democratic and Republican lawmakers also responded to the report and generally fell along party lines with regard to their views protecting or banning abortion access.
Bridgers, who is currently dating “Normal People” actor Paul Mescal, has been a vocal supporter of abortion rights for some time. Last fall, she unveiled a cover version of Bo Burnham’s song “That Funny Feeling” shortly after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a controversial law banning abortion in the Lone Star State after six weeks of pregnancy.
“This is for Greg Abbott,” she wrote on Instagram while announcing the track’s release. Proceeds from the sale of “That Funny Feeling” benefited the Texas Abortion Fund, which serves people seeking abortion-related services across the state.
