The Rock World Reacts To The Roe Vs. Wade Being Overturned
Several artists from the rock world took to social media to speak out about the Supreme Court announcing the decision to overturn Roe Vs. Wade that legalized abortion in the U.S. Coheed and Cambria revealed that they will be donating all of their profits from their upcoming Oklahoma City Show with My Chemical Romance to the Center for Reproductive Rights. Meanwhile, Rage against the Machine announced that they will donate nearly half a million dollars to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois.
Meanwhile, Rise Against released a statement, blasting the U.S. Supreme Court for the ruling, saying, “The half of America that will ban abortions have not ended abortion in their states, they have only ended safe abortion for people without the resources to travel; disproportionately non-white working class communities.” The statement continued, “We write this to you while touring internationally where we are reminded that we live in, not just a country, but a world that overwhelmingly supports a woman’s right to choose.”
The band added, “To the half of Americans who have had their freedoms stripped on this dark day, you are not alone in this battle and we won’t stop fighting until your dignity is restored.”
Jack White also released a statement on Instagram, saying, “Well trump, you took the country backwards 50 years. I hope your dad is smiling and waving down on you from heaven, while his other hand holds a record of all the abortions you secretly paid for behind closed doors.”
