Rage Against The Machine has some similar plans to that of Lizzo. The controversial decision of Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade caused an uproar. It was announced that the Supreme Court in America had decided to overturn the Roe vs Wade decision from 50 years ago, putting an end to guaranteed abortion rights. The US Supreme Court ruled in favour of a Mississippi law that outlaws abortion at 15 weeks of pregnancy while also overturning key precedents established by the 1973. This caused an uproar across the country.
Lizzo announced that she’ll contribute to the row. Lizzo said on social media that she’ll donate $500,000 of her upcoming “Special Tour” money to Planned Parenthood. Live Nation, the tour’s promoter, will match that total, making for a $1 million total donation.
The donation by Live Nation is its second in two months. In May, it teamed with Harry Styles to lobby for gun violence prevention. As part of that, $1 million in proceeds from the tour will be donated, with Live Nation matching.
