Phoebe Bridgers has revealed she had an abortion while on tour last year, saying “everyone deserves that kind of access.”
The 27-year-old Grammy-nominated singer took to Twitter to share her experiences after a draft advisory opinion was leaked suggesting the US Supreme Court may be ready to overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v Wade case that ruled legalized abortion across America.
I had an abortion last October while on tour. I went to Planned Parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill. It was easy. Everyone deserves this kind of access.

In response, Bridgers tweeted: “I had an abortion while on tour last October.
“I went to Planned Parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill. It was easy.
“Everyone deserves that kind of access.”
The Motion Sickness singer also shared a link to an article published by The Cut, which provides a state-by-state breakdown of abortion rights organizations that people can donate to online.
A decision to overrule the Roe v Wade case could lead to abortion bans in possibly half the states in the US.
The court has confirmed the authenticity of the leaked draft, but does not represent the final word from the court as language could change before the court issues its verdict.

After the news, US President Joe Biden said he hoped the draft would not be finalized by judges, claiming it reflected a “fundamental shift in American case law” that would protect “other fundamental rights” such as access to birth control and marriage threaten.
