Halsey Teams Up With ACLU to Fight State Abortion Bans: Watch the Video
In light of recent tightened abortion laws in several states across the country, Halsey teamed up with the American Civil Liberties Union to fight back.
The songstress posted a video to her Instagram in support of ACLU, and advocating for abortion as a constitutional right. "let's be clear: - abortion is a right - abortion is legal - abortion is YOUR decision," she wrote in tha caption alongside the clip. "stand with me, the @aclu_nationwide, and the abortion providers fighting on the front lines. none of us can be silent. #stopthebans"
The ACLU is a nonprofit dedicated "to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States." The group sued against the abortion ban in Alabama on Friday (May 24), and previously sued against recent state abortion bans in Ohio and Kentucky. The organization is preparing to challenge the ban in Georgia.
