In the wake of Georgia passing their controversial “fetal heartbeat” abortion law last month, Ariana Grande has made a generous donation to Planned Parenthood.

According to a statement from Planned Parenthood, the world-renowned singer gifted just a portion of the proceeds from her June 8th sold-out show in Atlanta to the clinic in the wake of calls for a state boycott. “Ariana Grande’s generous donation comes at a critical time — in Georgia and across the country, anti-women’s health politicians are trying to ban all safe, legal abortion,” Planned Parenthood Federation of America president Dr. Leana Wen said in a statement. The donation was estimated to be $250,000.

“Thanks to inspiring support like hers, Planned Parenthood can continue to fight back — in the courts, in Congress, in state houses, and in the streets — against these dangerous attacks on people’s health and lives,” she continued.

Grande isn’t the only musician fighting against the government of elected officials lately, as Billie Eilish recently called the law “unbelievable” and The 1975’s Matty Healy decried it during a show in Alabama. Halsey has also raised her voice, teaming up with the ACLU in support of abortion accessibility. Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, Offset and many more artists have shown their opposition to restrictive abortion laws in Alabama and Missouri.
