Lizzo and Live Nation pledge a million to reproductive rights organisations after Roe v Wade over-turned
Lizzo and Live Nation together pledged $1 million to reproductive healthcare organisation Planned Parenthood and abortion rights organisations in the US this weekend following the American Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the 1973 Roe v Wade judgement.That 1973 judgement ruled that the US constitution protected a pregnant woman’s right to choose to have an abortion up to a certain point in her pregnancy, and in doing so overruled laws that restricted or banned abortion in various US states.The current Supreme Court deciding to overturn that judgement – and in doing so rejecting nearly 50 years of legal precedent in the US – means that abortion can once again be restricted or banned at a state level, with severe restrictions or outright bans now anticipated in up to a half of US states.The judgement – and the appointment by former President Donald Trump of three conservative judges in recent years that allowed the shift in position on this issue within the court – has been very controversial, of course.
