Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa back abortion rights campaign

By BBC

A group of nearly 140 musicians, including Ariana Grande, Lizzo, Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, have signed an open letter in support of abortion rights in the US.

“Sweeping bans on access to safe, legal abortion are stripping away our freedoms,” they write.

Some states have brought in stricter abortion laws recently.

The letter is part of a campaign from reproductive health organisation Planned Parenthood.

‘No-one is free unless they control their own body’

“Every person deserves the right to control their body, their life, and their future,” says Billie Eilish, one of the stars who has signed the letter.

“We cannot live freely and move fully in the world when our basic right to access the reproductive health care we need is under attack.”

The letter includes some of the biggest names in music including Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga.

Other musicians on the letter include The 1975, Bon Iver, John Legend and Troye Sivan.

The letter is part of a campaign by organisation Planned Parenthood called Bans Off My Body.

“Freedom is at the foundation of music,” the letter says.

“Through music we have the power to create, to be who we are as individuals, to speak and live our own truth.

“Access to sexual reproductive health care is about that same freedom.

“Because no-one is free unless they control their own body.”
