Sydney, 2022-06-25 17:43:33. Roe v. Wade: Phoebe Bridgers leads an anti-Supreme Court hymn
Phoebe Bridgers voiced her frustration in the US Supreme Court during the Glastonbury Festival Friday night after the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
“I’m having a great day,” the 27-year-old American singer-songwriter said, referring to the ruling that there is no longer a federal constitutional right to abortion.
She continued, during her performance at the popular British music festival in Belton, England, by asking, “Are there any Americans here?” And she added, “Who wants to say VK the Supreme Court?”
Then she led the cheering crowd in Glastonbury in the hymn “F – k the Supreme Court”.
“F – k that sh-t, f – k America,” Bridgers said. “Like all those irrelevant mothers trying to tell us what to do with our royal bodies.”
In May, shortly after Politico published, shortly after a US Supreme Court opinion draft published the court’s intent to overturn Roe v. Wade, the indie rock musician said on Twitter that she had an abortion while on tour.
“I went to the parenting organization where they gave me abortion pills,” she wrote. “It was easy. Everyone deserves that kind of access.”
On Friday, Bridgers also appeared to be critical of the ruling on Twitter, writing “f-king evil” and sharing a link with Mariposa Fund, a New Mexico-based abortion fund.
Other musicians, including Taylor Swift, Halsey and Mariah Carey, have also used social media to criticize Friday’s ruling and advocate the right to abortion.
Lizzo has pledged to donate $500,000 from her upcoming tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights, with LiveNation matching her donation of a total of $1 million.
Meanwhile, Billie Eilish called the ruling a “really dark day for women in the US” on Friday during her party at Glastonbury Festival.
