Ariana Grande donates $ 300,000 in concert fees in Atlanta to Planned Parenthood after abortion legislation
Ariana Grande donated the proceeds from her sold-out concert in Atlanta to Planned Parenthood a month after the state of Georgia passed the abortion law & # 39; fetal heartbeat & # 39; had assumed.
The nonprofit organization that provides reproductive health care in the United States and worldwide receives $ 300,000 according to a TMZ report on Tuesday.
Because several production companies have decided to stop filming in the state, many other entertainment entities have called for a boycott because of the new state restrictions.
Under the new law, abortion is only permitted & # 39; to prevent a serious health risk to the mother of the unborn child & # 39; or, if the & # 39; unborn child has a fatal defect & # 39 ;, according to CNN.
