Ariana Grande’s tour recently made a stop in Georgia, and now she is taking the proceeds from the show and donating it to Planned Parenthood.

According to TMZ, the organization will reportedly get a total of $300,000 from the songstress. Her donation comes on the heels of the state approving the “Heartbeat Bill,” which bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected.


Since the bill’s approval, many big names have spoken out against the state’s decision. Big Hollywood studios such as Netflix and Disney have also talked about stopping the filming of their projects in the state if the bill goes into effect.

In an exclusive statement provided to People, Dr. Leana Wen, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund President said, “Ariana Grande’s generous donation comes at a critical time — in Georgia and across the country, anti-women’s health politicians are trying to ban all safe, legal abortion. This is not what the American people want, nor is it something they’ll stand for.”

Dr. Wen continued, “Thanks to inspiring support like hers, Planned Parenthood can continue to fight back — in the courts, in Congress, in state houses, and in the streets — against these dangerous attacks on people’s health and lives.  We are so grateful to Ariana for her longstanding commitment to supporting women’s rights and standing with Planned Parenthood to defend access to reproductive health care. We won’t stop fighting — no matter what.”
