Today, the Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe v. Wade, removing the constitutional protection on abortions and stripping away women's reproductive rights in numerous states. Many musicians have spoken up to condemn the decision.

This includes Taylor Swift, who tweeted that she was "absolutely terrified" that women have lost the "rights to their own bodies." Alicia Keys called the decision "fuckin bullshit," while Jack White made a snarky Instagram post denouncing the US's two-party system and saying that Trump "took the country backwards 50 years." Phoebe Bridgers simply wrote, "fucking evil."

Many Canadians have commented on the news from the US, including Tegan and Sara, PUP, Tanika Charles, Charlotte Day Wilson and others.

Companies including Netflix, Disney, Paramount and Sony have pledged to cover employee travel costs in order to provide abortion access.
