New York, May 13 (EFE) .- Haryana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Billy Elish or Selena Gomez were part of 160 young artists who gathered this Friday to defend the right to abortion in the United States against Supreme Court plans. Eliminate it.
They did so in a full-page advertisement published in The New York Times, in which they denounced the premature reversal of the 1973 judgment in the “Row v. Wade” case, which marked the end of abortion protection at the federal level. And leave its regulation in the hands of each state.
Most of the Supreme Court justices are in favor of ending that precedent, although there is no final decision, a draft that was leaked this month.
“The power to plan our own future and control our own body depends on our ability to access sexual and reproductive health services, including abortion,” says a message posted by artists and influencers.
The Supreme Court ruling underscores that they are stealing that power from a new generation, all those who are determined not to give up.
Among the signatories, mostly women, are Kendall Jenner, Olivia Rodrigo, Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato, Camila Capello, Haryana Depos, Megan Trainer or Phoebe Bridgers.
The announcement is part of a campaign promoted by the nonprofit organization Planned Parenthood (Planned Parenthood), which operates the largest reproductive health clinics in the United States and calls for a one-day event this Saturday. Support for the right to abortion is expected across the country. EFE
