In response to Friday’s Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, Lizzo is putting up money to help women get access to family planning resources.

Shortly after the High Court handed down its decision, the superstar singer took to Instagram to say she would send Planned Parenthood $500,000 and Live Nation is matching her donation.

“I’m pledging $500k from my upcoming tour to Planned Parenthood and Abortion Rights. Live Nation agreed to match — to make it 1 MILLION dollars,” she wrote. “The most important thing is action & loud voices. @plannedparenthood @abortionfunds & organizations like them — will need funding to continue offering services to people who are most harmed by this ban.”

She added details on how her followers can help.

“Black women & women of color have historically had disproportionately less access to family planning resources — this is a great loss but not a new one,” she continued. “Go to lizzolovesyou.com to donate, sign the Bans Off My Body petition and sign up to volunteer.”

The “Truth Hurts” singer is among millions of Americans expressing outrage by Friday’s decision.

In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court voted to uphold a Mississippi law banning most abortions after 15 weeks. Liberal justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented.

The decision overturns a 1973 ruling known as Roe v. Wade, and states can now ban abortion. According to the Associated Press, nearly half of states are expected to ban the procedure.

Abortion foes applauded the ruling, but abortion-rights activists have taken to the streets across the nation in protest.

In New York City, thousands of protesters flooded the streets chanting “We will rise up!”

Demonstrations have also taken place in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, New Mexico, California, and other areas.

In Los Angeles, large demonstration were held on Friday and Saturday, with some protesters carrying signs saying “abort the court.”
