As people continue to feel the effects of the Supreme Court of the United States overturning Roe V. Wade which for 50 years affirmed the constitutional right to seek abortion and reproductive rights, Paramore has announced that a portion of the proceeds from the band’s upcoming tour will be donated to foundations that support reproductive rights. The band posted a statement on their social media on Thursday making the announcement. You can read the announcement below.
“We are outraged by the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, ending the federal constitutional right to abortion, affecting millions across the country,” the band wrote in an Instagram post. Their statement continued:
