Over 200 musicians have come together to support a new ad campaign by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, encouraging potential voters to take part in the upcoming US presidential election. Among the backers are Billie Eilish, St. Vincent, Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange), and HAIM.
The “We Need Every Voice” campaign specifically references the Trump-endorsed confirmation of conservative justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “After the rushed confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, in the midst of a pandemic,” it reads, “we now face a Supreme Court that puts our health and freedoms, including our right to safe and legal abortion, at extreme risk.”
“The damage already inflicted on our country will last for generations. We can’t afford any further assaults on our reproductive freedom – our right to control our bodies. We need your voice.”
Also among the artists voicing their solidarity for the campaign are Kim Gordon, André 3000, Dorian Electra, Mykki Blanco, Princess Nokia, Bikini Kill, and many more.
“This election, more than any other, will determine our health, rights, and our future,” the ad continues. “Now, we decide. We need every voice. Vote, because your body is your own.”
