Over 130 musicians have signed a Planned Parenthood-sponsored petition against recent abortion restrictions passed by several states, a move condemned by pro-life activists as "out of touch."
"Musicians across the country are standing in solidarity with Planned Parenthood," announced the website of the country's larget abortion provider Aug. 26. "They're saying access to sexual and reproductive health care is about the same type of freedom that allows them to create music and speak their truth - because no one is free unless they control their own body."
Signatories of the petition include Ariana Grande, Carole King, Demi Lovato, the Foo Fighters, Idina Menzel, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Mackelmore, Miley Cyrus, Nine Inch Nails, Norah Jones and T-Pain.
Pro-life advocates lined up to dispute Planned Parenthood's claim that free access to abortion throughout pregnancy is a form of "freedom."
