Lady Gaga took a moment out from her set to vouch her continued support for abortion rights and gay marriage.It comes in the wake of the US Supreme Court overturning Roe v.
Wade, the 1973 court case that made abortion legal on a federal level. The landmark decision was officially overruled on June 24, meaning US states would be able to set their own laws regarding the legality of abortions.
Since then, 25 states have moved to enact laws barring citizens from safe access to abortion.Before performing ‘Edge Of Glory’ at Monday’s show – a sold-out affair at Washington’s Nationals Park stadium, where Gaga played to more than 40,000 fans – she told the audience: “I would like to dedicate this song to every woman in America.
To every woman who now has to worry about her body if she gets pregnant. I pray that this country will speak up, that we will stick together, and that we will not stop until it’s right!
