In light of the US Supreme Court’s recent overturning of Roe v. Wade and allowing states to restrict or ban abortion at any point during a pregnancy (with, as a result of the ruling, an expected 16 states will make abortion illegal nearly immediately), a handful of country music artists across America, Australia and the world have been quick to voice their opinions.

“I have spent the last 20 years of my life traveling to every state, city, and every corner of the American landscape. From Alabama to Georgia, Texas to Tennessee, from New York to California, I have sung songs of hope, inclusivity and love to audiences reflecting those sentiments right back at me by singing along to every word.

The harrowing and unprecedented decision made by SCOTUS today does not represent the heart and soul of the faces I see everyday in America. The politics and policies don’t match the people. We outnumber the oppressors, and we are unstoppable when we realize that and vote as a revolutionary body. This can be undone. This message today is one of hope.”

Breland

“I believe this Supreme Court ruling requires both men and women to use their platforms to speak out. I have had conversations with many women in my life, and their pain is both heartbreaking and valid. This is a civil rights issue, and all signs point toward this decision being the beginning of a set of similar rulings that could also affect the rights of many other communities of Americans.

I’ve always dreamed my music would heal the divisions from which these decisions were made, but today it seems only the age-old melodies of our forefathers were heard. It’s the same song that accompanied slavery, the wicked backing track of Jim Crow and segregation, a hymn of oppression and control.”

“If you’re gonna talk about how divided we are as a nation, you’ll want to mention SCOTUS decisions like this one, handing power to state reps in crazy-ass gerrymandered districts and completely ignoring the will of the majority of US citizens. This is not what the people want.”





Maren Morris 

“Today, I hold my two-year-old son with tears streaming down my face because all my love and planning still wasn’t enough to protect him from being born in a country who could do this to women. Women, the ones who gave each Supreme Court Justice on the bench the right to be here, the dexterity of their pen hand. Tomorrow I will fight, but today I am grieving.” via Rolling Stone.

On Twitter, Morris simply stated, “This is America,” alongside a sad face emoji.





Cassadee Pope

“This is sickening. The Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade, allowing states to ban abortion and control our bodies. I am heartbroken and angry.”





Taylor Swift 

“I’m absolutely terrified that this is where we are - that after so many decades of people fighting for women’s rights to their own bodies, today’s decision has stripped us of that.”
