Previously, Hollywood’s rallied against states’ restrictive abortion laws (here).

Now the music industry is speaking out.

Via a full-page ad in Billboard, over 130 recording artists are taking a stand against pro-life legislation.

The campaign — “Band Together, Bans Off” — is a studded alliance with Planned Parenthood’s #BansOffMyBody.

A few of the notables on board: former Nickelodean star (and absolutely phenomenal singer) Ariana Grande, hitmaker Carole King, Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple, Foo Fighters, HAIM, Heart, Frozen’s Idina Menzel, anti-Trumper John Legend, Katy Perry (here), Lady Gaga, Macklemore, “All About That Bass” singer Meghan Trainor, Miley Cyrus, Nine Inch Nails, Norah Jones, Queens of the Stone Age, Sia, and 90’s breakthrough Third Eye Blind.

The ad explains:

Freedom is at the foundation of music. Through music we have the power to create, to be as we are as individuals, to speak and live our truth. Access to sexual and reproductive health care is about that same freedom. Because no one is free unless they control their own body. Right now our bodies are under attack in this country. Sweeping bans on access to safe, legal abortions are stripping away our freedoms. Now is the time to band together and say keep your bans off our bodies.

As reported by Broadway World, Planned Parenthood Acting President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson praised the partnership:

“Abortion access and reproductive health and rights are under attack like never before, and we need everyone to fight back. These bans do not represent the will of the American people, which is why so many powerful, diverse voices are speaking out against them. Planned Parenthood is grateful to these artists for using their incredible platforms to declare that our bodies are our own – if they are not, we can never be truly free or equal. With their help, Planned Parenthood and our supporters will keep fighting to ensure that our patients – and people across the country – can still access reproductive and sexual health care, no matter what.”

The team-up follows 180+ CEOs of companies such as Bloomberg, H&M, Postmates, and Yelp uniting for the pro-choice cause in a June New York Times ad.

What do these groups hope to accomplish? A roll-back of the country’s laws?

Whatever their specific plan, many in business and entertainment are making no bones about it — they want abortion on demand, and they want it now.

Personally, I miss the days when you had no idea what the maker of your favorite tennis shoes or the singer of your favorite song thought about any given issue of politics. Now, it’s almost hard to imagine such a time. For those of you who missed it, I feel bad for you.

It was truly glorious.
