26 August is Women's Equality Day, and nearly 140 musicians - including Lady Gaga, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and many others - have joined a new Planned Parenthood campaign called #BansOffMyBody to support reproductive rights and access to abortion. The artists signed their names in a new full-page advertisement to be screened in the August 24 issue of Billboard to raise awareness about the harm of early abortion bans across the country. Supporters are also encouraged to add their name to a national petition calling for an end to the abortion ban. Planned Parenthood aims to achieve 500,000 signatures by the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January 2020.

Other musicians who signed the campaign include Bon Iver, the 1975, Nicki Minaj, Fiona Apple, HAIM, Troye Sivan, Megan Thee Stallion, Miley Cyrus, and Kacey Musgraves.

“I’m proud to be standing up for Planned Parenthood as they fight for fair and equal access to reproductive rights,” Billie Eilish says in a statement. “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. Every person deserves the right to control their body, their life, and their future.”

In the past few months, Ariana Grande and Travis Scott donated the proceeds of their concerts to Planned Parenthood.
