Lady Gaga took to Twitter yesterday to share her thoughts on the Alabama abortion ban with her loyal 78.6 million followers.
“I love you Alabama. Prayers to all women and young girls here are my thoughts,” she captioned her tweet, attaching a message she wrote in a note that she uploaded.
“It is an outrage to ban abortion in Alabama period, and all the more heinous that it excludes those who have been raped or are experiencing incest non-consensual or not,” the “Born This Way” superstar wrote with passion.
“So there’s a higher penalty for doctors who perform these operations than for most rapists? This is a travesty and I pray for all these women and young girls who suffer at the hands of this system.”
Doctors who go ahead and perform an abortion on women in the state could now face up to 99 years in prison due to the new law.
Gaga’s tweet didn’t get left unnoticed as 57,000 liked the post and 16,000 retweeted.
Her “Little Monsters” were proud that the “Just Dance” songstress was speaking up about an important topic and that she cares for women’s rights. She made sure her voice was heard by hashtagging the tweet under the relevant hashtags so her message would spread further than just her followers.
Recently, Lady Gaga attended this year’s Met Gala event where she stole the show by showcasing four different red carpet looks. The Inquisitr reported all four garments and how her loyal fanbase reacted.
In Gaga’s first look, she wore a barbie pink-colored gown which she accessorized with a huge pink bow to match. The first outfit opened up into a jet black dress that went down to the floor where she posed with an umbrella. Gaga’s third look saw the “Poker Face” chart-topper in another pink garment, but this time a slim-fitted silky dress. Her final look was when she took everything off and posed in a skimpy black underwear set with fishnet tights over the top. Gaga acted out these different garments by playing with numerous props and serving different poses.
Since bursting onto the music scene, Lady Gaga has released five successful studio albums — The Fame, Born This Way, ARTPOP, Cheek to Cheek, and Joanne. Last year, she released the soundtrack album for A Star Is Born, where she played the role of Ally in the movie. The soundtrack and film were such a success that she won numerous trophies during awards season, including an Emmy and Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Shallow.”
On Instagram, Lady Gaga has over 35.7 million followers.
