    Last night, a leaked draft opinion from the Supreme Court suggested that the legislative body could soon overturn Roe v. Wade, a 1973 decision that recognizes the constitutional right to abortion.

    Since the news broke, many public figures have expressed their support for abortion rights online — including singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers.

    Earlier today, Phoebe shared "a big list of places you can donate to right now" to support abortion rights. She also shared her own recent abortion experience.

    I had an abortion in October of last year while I was on tour. I went to planned parenthood where they gave me the abortion pill. It was easy. Everyone deserves that kind of access. Here’s a big list of places you can donate to right now. https://t.co/jT0sk6CeNX

    Phoebe isn't the first celebrity to recently share her abortion experience. In September of last year, Uma Thurman wrote a powerful essay for the Washington Post about getting an abortion as a teenager as a response to Texas's recently passed SB 8 law regarding abortions in the state.

    "To all of you — to women and girls of Texas, afraid of being traumatized and hounded by predatory bounty hunters; to all women outraged by having our bodies’ rights taken by the state; and to all of you who are made vulnerable and subjected to shame because you have a uterus — I say: I see you," she wrote.
