Abortion is a human right. Abortion is basic health care. Celebrities who have had abortions and spoken out about them are in good company among the one in four women who will get abortions in their lifetime.

Abortion should be no more stigmatized than any other medical decision. But as the Supreme Court looks poised to roll back Roe v. Wade after 50 years of legal abortions, the ongoing crisis of abortion access is becoming even more of an emergency. “Celebrities today regularly reveal the details of their drug addictions, sexual obsessions, marital infidelities—but no celebrity in recent memory has admitted to ending a pregnancy,” Susan Dominus wrote in Glamour in 2005.

Today (August 26) is Women’s Equality Day, and nearly 140 musicians—including Lady Gaga, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, and many others—have joined a new Planned Parenthood campaign called #BansOffMyBody in support of reproductive rights and abortion access. The artists have signed their names in a new full-page ad running in the August 24 issue of Billboard in order to raise awareness about the harm of sweeping early abortion bans across the country. Supporters are also encouraged to add their name to a national petition calling for an end to the abortion bans. Planned Parenthood is aiming for a goal of 500,000 signatures by the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January 2020.

Other musicians who have signed the campaign include Bon Iver, the 1975, Nicki Minaj, Fiona Apple, HAIM, Troye Sivan, Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, and Kacey Musgraves. See all the names in the ad below.
