Taraji P. Henson Praises Lizzo For $1 Million Planned Parenthood Pledge at 2022 BET Awards

News

On June 24, Lizzo took to Instagram to announce her pledge to donate after the Supreme Court overturned Roe V. Wade, the landmark ruling that established a person’s constitutional right to have an abortion in the United States.

“I’m pledging $500k from my upcoming tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights. Live Nation agreed to match—to make it 1 MILLION dollars,” she wrote. “The most important thing is action & loud voices.”

Lizzo shared that she will be donating to Planned Parenthood, the National Network of Abortion Funds and other organizations with similar missions as they “will need funding to continue offering services to people who are most harmed by this ban.”

“Black women & women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources,” she added, “This is a great loss but not a new one.”

Lizzo ended her post by encouraging her fans “to donate, sign the Bans Off My Body petition and sign up to volunteer.”
