Pop star Ariana Grande donated the proceeds from her sold-out Atlanta concert earlier this month to Planned Parenthood after the state passed a restrictive abortion ban.

People magazine confirmed Wednesday that the “7 Rings” singer is donating around $250,000.

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,” Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Leana Wen said in a statement to the outlet.

“This is not what the American people want, nor is it something they’ll stand for,” Wen’s statement continued.

Grande, who is currently on her “Sweetener” world tour, has been a vocal supporter of Planned Parenthood for many years.

 

She is one of many musicians and Hollywood actors who have spoken out against the recent abortion bans passed in Georgia, Alabama and Missouri.

Multiple states such as Kentucky and Georgia have passed "heartbeat" abortion bans, outlawing the procedure once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be around six weeks of pregnancy and before many women know they are pregnant.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) last month signed into law the nation’s most restrictive abortion ban, making it a felony for doctors to perform or attempt to perform an abortion in nearly all cases.
