Halsey has raised $100,000 for abortion clinics in Alabama, thanks to a little help from her fans.
The “Nightmare” singer partnered with The Yellowhammer Fund, an organization helping anyone who seeks abortions specifically in Alabama, to sell t-shirts with a lyric from her new female empowerment hit and announced the donation news on Monday.
Thanking her fans for the “ever-inspiring action,” Halsey wrote on her IG story, “ALL of it will help patients in Alabama seeking care in their local abortion clinics.”
The black t-shirt reads, “I won’t be caught dead letting a man tell me what I should do with my bed.”
Halsey continued her message, writing, “Music speaks, but you speak louder, and we will continue to prove we won’t be silenced.”
The donation news comes just one week after Halsey joined forces with the ACLU in an effort to raise awareness that abortions are still legal and available despite the state, and several others, passing a bill making the procedures illegal six weeks into the pregnancy.
Alabama’s bill is one of the strictest our country has seen yet, outlawing all abortions — including rape and incest victims —unless the birth would potentially cause death to the mother. Any doctor who performs such a task will face a minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 99 to life.
Halsey isn’t the only superstar who’s been vocal against the anti-abortion laws.
