Popstar and Actress Olivia Rodrigo is Donating a Portion of Ticket Sales to Help Fund Abortion

If you are Pro-Life and attend Olivia Rodrigo’s concerts, know that you are funding abortion.

21-Year-old singer and actress Olivia Rodrigo joined the ranks of pro-abortion activist celebrities with her decision to donate a portion of the proceeds from her world tour to abortion advocacy organizations. 

In a TikTok video posted on Feb. 23, Rodrigo announced the launch of her “Fund 4 Good” global initiative in conjunction with her “Guts World Tour.”

“Fund 4 Good works to support all women, girls and people who are seeking reproductive health freedom,” Rodrigo said. 

“The fund will directly support community-based nonprofits that champion things like girls’ education, support reproductive rights and prevent gender-based violence. A portion of all the proceeds from the Guts World Tour will go to the Fund 4 Good.”

A leg of the Guts World Tour will be in North America, and there, Rodrigo will be “partnering with the National Network of Abortion Funds to help those impacted by healthcare barriers in getting the reproductive care they deserve.”

The National Network of Abortion Funds is a “network of 100 independent abortion funds… [made up of] grassroots organizations that support people seeking abortion access,” the network self-describes. “Together, we’re organizing at the crossroads of racial, economic and reproductive justice.”

The National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) offers multiple forms of support to abortion seekers, including access to abortion funds that grant money to women traveling over state lines to receive abortion which would be illegal in their home states. 

NNAF promotes the Lilith Fund, for example, which “provides direct financial and emotional support to Texans forced to travel to access abortions, and those who need reproductive care close to home.”

Additionally, NNAF dedicates one measure of outreach to “heart-to-heart conversations about abortion,” where the organization teaches girls how to facilitate conversations about abortion through pro-abortion playing cards, placemats, menus and individual and small group guides. 

“What are some real-life things we can do together to move towards making reproductive justice and abortion access a reality?” one playing card asks.

One year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its Dobbs v. Jackson decision, which overturned the five-decade reign of Roe v. Wade’s America. Dobbs v. Jackson decided that the U.S. Constitution does not contain a right to abortion.

Now, for the first time in fifty years, states have the power to individually decide their abortion laws and restrictions. Twenty-four states enacted restrictions on abortion.

These two dozen include fifteen states which prohibit abortion in nearly all circumstances during every trimester: Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

“Georgia and South Carolina prohibit abortions after six weeks gestation, Nebraska and North Carolina have 12-week abortion bans and Florida has a 15-week abortion ban. Arizona, Iowa, Utah and Wyoming have pro-life laws tied up in court,” The Christian Post listed.

Rodrigo rose to fame as a childhood Disney star in the programs “Bizaardvark” and “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.” Her debut album, “Sour,” was a hit in 2021. She is currently on her Guts World Tour, which celebrates her second, 2023 album, “Guts.”

Rodrigo has also partnered with pro-abortion funds Access Reproductive Justice and Florida Access Network, and her newsletter, The Rodrigo Times, praised the latter “reproductive justice organization” for supporting “all types of women, LGBTQ+ individuals, abortion rights, Black History, Palestine and more.”

The tour includes a total of 75 dates across various cities in the United States and abroad, including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom.

This tour is not the first time Rodrigo has been outspoken about her support for abortion.

“At the 2022 Glastonbury music festival after Roe’s reversal, she said in a message directed at conservative members of the U.S. Supreme Court, ‘We hate you,’” The Christian Post pointed out. “She later defended her remarks, saying, ‘forcing women to give birth is really horrifying.’”

Among celebrity singers and actresses, engaging in leftist politics and pro-abortion advocacy is more common than not. In January, singer-songwriter Demi Lovato released a new single, “Swine,” and dedicated a portion of its proceeds to NNAF. 

“It’s been one year since the Supreme Court’s decision to dismantle the constitutional right to a safe abortion, and although the path forward will be challenging, we must continue to be united in our fight for reproductive justice,” said Lovato on a NNAF newsletter

“I created ‘SWINE’ to amplify the voices of those who advocate for choice and bodily autonomy. I want this song to empower not only the birthing people of this country, but everyone who stands up for equality, to embrace their agency and fight for a world where every person’s right to make decisions about their own body is honored.”

 Pro-Life Activist Anna Lulis

Rhetoric like “reproductive justice,” “bodily autonomy” and “forced birth” are common language among pro-abortion advocates. Pro-life activist Anna Lulis pointed out something interesting about this language in a video she posted as a response to Rodrigo.

“Can we talk about how people who claim to be pro-choice always say people who are pro-life want ‘forced birth?’” Lulis prompted. “When in reality, they are the ones advocating for an act that forces women to give birth early. People who are pro-life advocate for a natural birth.”

“When a woman is pregnant, she will give birth to a child,” she continued. “It’s not like she is not going to give birth. It’s just whether or not the birth is going to be forced, and the kid is going to be alive or dead.”

As British politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish slave trade, William Wilberforce put it, “You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”
