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:

$1 of every ticket sold for our US Fall 2022 shows will be donated to ARC Southeast, an organization that provides funding and logistical support to ensure Southerners receive safe and compassionate reproductive care including abortion services.

$1 of every ticket sold for our Bonner Springs, Kansas show will be donated to Kansas Abortion Fund, an organization that provides assistance to Kansans in need of financial support to obtain abortion services.

$1 of every ticket sold for our Toronto, ON show will be donated to Women’s Shelters Canada. Women’s Shelters Canada works with 600+ women’s shelters across Canada, supporting women and children fleeing violence. For more information, head to: sheltersafe.ca
