Rap-rock icons Rage Against The Machine have released a strongly worded statement against the US Supreme Court’s leaked document which stated a plan to overturn the historic 1973 Roe v. Wade decision on abortion rights, which could effectively end the legal practice of abortion in the USA.
The often outspoken and defiant band are deeply affronted by the idea of instructing or infringing upon people's reproductive freedoms and their statement makes that pretty clear in the statement that was posted to their Instagram which reads:
"Rage Against the Machine stands in support of reproductive justice and will continue to fight against any attempts to restrict or control reproductive freedoms. Criminalizing access to abortion will only add to the suffering disproportionately felt by poor, BIPOC and undocumented communities.
The constant rightward shift of both major parties should alarm us all - a wake up call that we desperately need to organize radical people power against a warfare state that continues its assault on people's lives."
