Phoebe Bridgers Reveals She 'Had Abortion On Tour' In Powerful Post

Phoebe Bridgers has revealed that she ‘had an abortion on tour’ in a powerful Twitter post. 

The American singer-songwriter, 27, appeared to stand in solidarity with the US citizens who may be affected by the Supreme Court's draft opinion to overturn the Roe v Wade bill, which protects a pregnant person’s right to choose to have an abortion.

She wrote: “I had an abortion in October of last year while I was on tour. I went to planned parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill. It was easy. Everyone deserves that kind of access.”

Phoebe then shared a ‘big list of places you can donate to right now’ by The Cut which details the states and its organisations that face abortion bans.

Fans came together to support the star for sharing her story, with one Twitter user commenting: “YES and I’m sure the decision wasn’t easy. Nobody wants to be in that situation but if it happens, it is OUR BODY OUR CHOICE, why is this so hard to understand?”

“I'm so proud of you for speaking up about this. It’s so important and it gets rid of the stigma around it, making others feel better about sharing their own stories, which takes bravery and I'm so proud of the bravery with which you shared this,” another wrote.

On Monday evening, the news surfaced that the Supreme Court privately voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, according to an initial draft majority opinion in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization which was leaked.

Politico stated that the 98-page document, which was written by Justice Samuel Alito, “a full-throated, unflinching repudiation of the 1973 decision” that guarantees the right to abortion up until fetal viability.

Justice wrote in the draft: “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” also stating that Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the a 1992 decision which upheld the constitutional right to abortion, “must be overruled”, too.
