Planned Parenthood is working with over 130 pop music stars to promote abortions in a campaign targeting young people, as they fight back against states that are passing legislation to restrict the brutal and barbaric practice.
“Musicians across the country are standing in solidarity with Planned Parenthood,” the nation’s largest abortion provider wrote while introducing its new “Band Together” project. They intend to have a presence at concert events throughout the country.
“They’re saying access to sexual and reproductive health care is about the same type of freedom that allows them to create music and speak their truth — because no one is free unless they control their own body,” they added.
Some of the biggest names that have signed on include Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus. Beck, Alanis Morissette, Demi Lovato, the Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Nine Inch Nails, and Selena Gomez. The pop stars hope to push their pro-abortion beliefs onto their large fan bases.
“I’m proud to be standing up for Planned Parenthood as they fight for fair and equal access to reproductive rights,” 17-year-old singer Billie Eilish said. “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 campaign hopes to get people to sign a petition to “get your [abortion] bans off my body” because “we cannot be truly free or equal” with babies being protected in the womb. They hope to garner half a million signatures by January 22, 2020, which will be the 47th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that secured abortion access nationwide.
“Artists can highlight how out-of-touch some of our politicians are in this space,” interim Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson said to Billboard. “They can hold up a mirror and say, [to quote] Marvin Gaye, ‘What’s going on?’”
However, the American public is not nearly as gung ho regarding open access to abortion as the music community. A Gallup poll released last summer showed that 53 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be permissible in “few” or “no” instances.
A poll released earlier this year by Polling Company, Inc./WomanTrend even found that pro-life sentiment is increasing among millennials. 42 percent of Americans aged 18-34 are opposed to legal abortion with another 28 percent of them supporting tougher restrictions against the practice.
The “Band Together” project hopes to reverse the pro-life trends that are gaining steam throughout the country, as Planned Parenthood copes with losing billions in federal funding due to new rules set by the Trump administration.
DC Catholic Archbishop to Give Joe Biden Communion Despite Radical Pro-Abortion Views
Supporting abortion is a mortal sin.
Wilton Gregory, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington DC, announced that he would not prevent Democrat Joe Biden from receiving communion at Catholic churches, regardless of the Democrat’s uncompromising support of abortion.
“The kind of relationship that I hope we will have is a conversational relationship where we can discover areas where we can cooperate that reflect the social teachings of the church, knowing full well that there are some areas where we won’t agree,” Gregory said. “They are areas where the church’s position is very clear,” said the bishop, who is the first African-American cardinal in the history of the church. Gregory was speaking to the Catholic News Service on November 24th.
“I hope it’s a real dialogue, because I think that’s the mantra of Pope Francis — that we should be a church in dialogue, even with those with whom we have some serious disagreements,” Gregory continued.
“It’s not a matter of confusion,” said Gregory. “On my part, it’s a matter of the responsibility that I have as the archbishop to be engaged and to be in dialogue with him, even in those areas where we obviously have some differences.”
Catholic clergy and laity have debated the premise of allowing pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality politicians to receive communion for years, with the issue often dividing more conservative and liberal members of the church.
Wilton Gregory was made into a Catholic cardinal this week in a ceremony in the Vatican. He’s been described as one of the most liberal senior prelates in the American church hierarchy, banning parishioners from carrying concealed weapons as Archbishop of Atlanta in 2014. He frequently assailed President Donald Trump, arguing that pro-American immigration policy deviated from the principles of the Catholic religion.
