In wake of the new anti-abortion laws, Travis Scott has pledged to donate profits from his merchandise sales to Planned Parenthood.
If you’re unfamiliar with PP, it is a non-profit organization that provides reproductive health care to women, including abortions.
La Flame made the announcement during his set at the 2019 Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Ala. on Friday. “I wanna donate my net profits from my merch today to Planned Parenthood,” he told the attendees.
He added, “We feel for those in Alabama. I love you all. I just want everyone to know that love is the strongest thing that we can have…So to anyone out there; man, woman. I wanna dedicate this song to you.” He then went on to sing his SZA collaboration, “Love Galore.”
Abortions have been a hot topic since last week when a new bill was signed criminalizing abortions even in the case of rape and incest. Doctors who are caught performing abortions can face 99 years in jail.
The Hip Hop community have been sounding off about the bill. Sad we living in a era where laws don’t really help the everyday American. I swa ladies I’m praying for y’all. #ProtectOurWomen But #KeepYallLegsClosed,” Waka Flocka wrote on Twitter. “We should pass a bill that rapist get the death penalty.”
