Billie Eilish is giving back in a big way.

Today, the singer announced on Instagram that she will be donating a portion of her earnings from her performance at Atlanta’s Music Midtown Festival to Planned Parenthood Southeast. Eilish is one of more than 140 artists who have endorsed the “Band Together, Bans Off” campaign, which is part of Planned Parenthood’s #BansOffMyBody initiative. #BansOffMyBody’s aim is to elevate opposition to state abortion bans and attacks on reproductive health across the country.

“ATLANTA. One of my favorite places in the world, to be in, and play shows!!” Eilish wrote in her Instagram story. “But I do not love the state’s lawmaker’s decision to take away women’s rights. I still cannot believe we are even having this conversation in 2019.”

She continued, “I’m donating a portion of my guarantee tomorrow to @plannedparenthood. We need this organization more than ever. Swipe up to learn more and sign the petition, and if you have any spare change, donate. You can seriously help someone. See you tomorrow atl.”

In May, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, one that effectively banned abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. This year alone, over 300 bills restricting abortion access have been filed in the U.S. Planned Parenthood is working with the music industry to raise awareness surrounding abortion, with the goal of getting 500,000 signatures for the Bans Off petition, and delivering it to politicians on the 2020 anniversary of Roe. v. Wade.
