Olivia Rodrigo is helping to fund abortion on her tour

by RepublicAsia

“Funding abortion? It’s a good idea, right?”

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Guts World Tour” is supporting nonprofits that strengthen reproductive rights and abortion access.

The singer collaborated with Missouri Abortion Fund to offer emergency contraceptives to concert attendees in St.Louis — where abortion is banned. 

Fund 4 Good

This initiative, named “Fund 4 Good,” was revealed by Rodrigo in a TikTok video posted at the end of last month as part of her “Guts World Tour” announcement.

A fan who was present at the event shared a picture of the package she got. Apart from receiving two packs of emergency contraception, attendees also got a sticker including the contact number for Right By You, a service where individuals can text to locate abortion care.

The package also contained a QR code directing fans to a donation page for the Missouri Abortion Fund, accompanied by a message: “Supporting abortion? Is it a good thought?” This message referenced Olivia Rodrigo’s song, “Bad Idea Right?” from her album, Guts.

According to the singer’s website, the Fund 4 Good is a “global initiative committed to building an equitable and just future for women and girls through direct support of community based non-profits that champion girls’ education, support reproductive rights and prevent gender-based violence”. 

To add to this, she has encouraged her fans to contribute and support these efforts.

Olivia has consistently expressed her support for reproductive rights. In 2022, following the Dobbs decision, she performed at Glastonbury alongside Lily Allen. 

They dedicated Allen’s 2009 hit “Fuck You” to the five Supreme Court justices who invalidated Roe. Addressing the audience, Rodrigo expressed her devastation and fear, stating, “I’m devastated and terrified. So many women and so many girls are going to die because of this.”

Filipino-American singer Olivia Rodrigo has announced that she will be contributing a share of her world tour profits to support organizations advocating for abortion rights.
