These organizations will need

“funds to continue to offer their services to the people who are most affected by this ban

, explains Lizzo on her Instagram account.

The most important thing is to act and be heard.”

The half million dollars promised by Lizzo will come from the profits of his future tour.

The singer clarified that she would send money from the proceeds to the National Abortion Fund Network after a fan asked her to send

“money directly to abortion funds”

.

Live Nation, which manages the organization and promotion of its shows, joins the artist in the campaign for the right to abortion.

"Live Nation has agreed to give as much to reach $ 1 million,"

welcomes the interpreter of
