State lawmakers in Nebraska approved a Republican-led ban on abortion care at roughly 10 weeks of pregnancy, combined with a bill that bans gender-affirming care for transgender youth. Lizzo has hit out at the newly-passed anti-abortion bill.
On May 19, during a stop on her ‘Special’ tour in Omaha, Nebraska, she shared a message with her fans who are in danger of losing reproductive rights and trans-affirming care. She said, “Don’t let anyone tell you who you are. … These laws are not real. You are what’s real, and you deserve to be protected.”
