Ariana Grande donates the entire proceeds from her concert in Atlanta last week to organization Planned Parenthood. People know that this involves an amount of around 250,000 dollars (220,500 euros).
The singer wants to make a statement because of the anti-abortion laws recently passed in a number of southern states in America, including Georgia, which includes Atlanta. Planned Parenthood is an American non-profit organization that provides sex education and has been fighting for years to relax abortion legislation.
Ariana has not yet responded openly to the new legislation, but with her donation she is joining a group of female American stars who are furious because of the new rules. The law states that almost all abortions are prohibited and that no exception is made for women who have been raped or are victims of incest. Abortion may only be performed when a woman’s health is in serious danger.
