Over the weekend, all the artists were reportedly featured in a full page Billboard ad for the campaign’s musical number “Band Together, Bans Off”.
Planned Parenthood President, Alexis McGill in a recent statement said;
“Abortion access and reproductive health and rights are under attack like never before, and we need everyone to fight back. Planned Parenthood is grateful to these artists for using their incredible platforms to declare that our bodies are our own if they are not, we can never be truly free or equal,”
