The protest ignites and, together with thousands of citizens, also singers, actresses, influencers are taking to the field to claim the right to decide their own body and their future.
Many big Hollywood stars also took the field to protect the constitutional right to abortion which, in all likelihood, after the United States Senate blocked the provision that would have transformed the Supreme Court ruling that made it legal into law, will fall in late June. A historical issue that inflames the United States, which is causing protests throughout the country and now also actresses, singers, models, have decided to do their part.
In all 160 big names, from Miley Cyrus to Ariana Grande and then Hailey Bieber, Billie Eilish, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, Demi Lovato, signatories of an ad published in the New York Times for the Bans Off Our Bodies campaign, promoted by Planned Parenthood, a historic American association that has been fighting for years to raise awareness on restrictions on abortion, for the right to health care of women who request it, for freedom of choice.
The Supreme Court – reads the page published by the New York Times – is about to cancel Roe v. Wade (the sentence that made abortion legal in the US, ed). Our power to plan our future and control our bodies depends on our ability to access sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion. «We are artists. Creative. Tell Stories. We are the generation that has control over their actions. Now – we read on the page of the American newspaper – they are robbing us of this power ».
“Our bodies are ours, if they are not, we cannot be truly free or equal,” reads the Planned Parenthood campaign, and with this motto on May 14 protests are held in every corner of the United States.
Demonstrations to claim the right of choice for 36 million American women who could be hit by a measure that would represent a sensational, and dangerous, turnaround in terms of rights.
