Paramore singer Hayley Williams deleted her social media accounts, especially her Instagram, not too long ago and advised her fans to follow her on Paramore’s official website.
Although fans are hopeful for an announcement of new music this year, the “Misery Business” singer revealed that she reinstalled the Instagram app on her phone on Friday, June 24, to comment on the recent 6-3 SCOTUS ruling that struck down the abortions protections granted by the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.
Hayley Williams Is Back On Instagram To Vent Her ‘Angry Feelings’
On Friday, Hayley posted a black box on Instagram to describe her feelings about the recent Supreme Court decision.
“It still feels impossible to comprehend that we live in a country so divided on basic human rights, namely healthcare and women’s reproductive rights,” she wrote. “if recent history shows a pattern – and it does – you’d have to imagine when these children are forcibly brought into this world that this country won’t take care of them but rather teach them to take cover. what are we f—ing doing?”
“im so angry and tired im not the only one. i don’t post things personally/myself on this app anymore but i redownloaded this morning to say something bc it felt weird to have our team post my angry feelings for me,” she continued.
“i know that there are countless org leaders, activists, and citizens of this country who are on here doing thankless work to make any semblance of progress. keeping hope alive. thank you so much to people who are fighting for women’s rights daily and in ways i’ll never even know,” she concluded. “today is NOT the end.”
She encouraged her followers to “please follow @plannedparenthood @aclu_nationwide for resources.”
One follower wrote, “PLEASE donate to LOCAL ABORTION FUNDS, not planned parenthood. It is SO IMPORTANT to uplift these orgs which provide extensive care and resources in ways national orgs DO NOT. the thought and the message are great, but this is the information that must be pushed right now.”
This Isn’t The First Time Hayley Williams Has Commented On The Abortion Debate
On May 4, the “We Are Broken” singer posted a photo of women dressed as handmaids from Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” series on her Instagram page.
“A ban on abortion would allow states to strip women of what is a basic human right to reproductive healthcare,” she wrote. “I am especially concerned as a woman from the South, where given the option, a ban would almost certainly be guaranteed.”
“For folks in MS, you can find more information and resources from the Mississippi Reproductive Freedom Fund at the link in story,” she continued. “For the rest of my Southern friends and family in the Southeastern states (including MS) there’s Arc Southeast, a reproductive justice organization. Get involved at the link in story.”
“For more info, resources, and guidance, head to @plannedparenthood’s website at the link in story,” she concluded. “Thanks for reading – H.”
Planned Parenthood Says That The Fight Isn’t Over
The Supreme Court just ended our constitutional right to abortion — but you can count on us to fight to make sure you get the care you deserve. Your local Planned Parenthood might still be providing abortions even if a ban may soon be in place. Call 1-800-230-PLAN. pic.twitter.com/IsoulPQy5k

Planned Parenthood and many other women’s organizations are not going to stop giving women the medical care they are entitled to despite the controversial Supreme Court Ruling.
On Friday morning, they tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ended our constitutional right to abortion — but you can count on us to fight to make sure you get the care you deserve. Your local Planned Parenthood might still be providing abortions even if a ban may soon be in place.”
Even if states are planning strict abortion bans, Planned Parent is encouraging women who are seeking an abortion to call 1-800-230-PLAN to get the medical help they need, regardless of location.
Thank you, @POTUS for speaking out and committing to act to address this abortion crisis. We look forward to seeing more actions in the coming days/months. We need our elected officials at all levels to do everything in their power to reduce the impact of today’s SCOTUS decision.
