“It is an outrage to ban abortion.”
Lady Gaga has joined the voices speaking out against Alabama’s controversial abortion ban, slamming the decision as “heinous”.
The singer expressed her anger after the law passed in the US state earlier this week by 25-6, ahead of being signed into law by Governor Kay Ivey.
The new ruling means that all abortions in Alabama are illegal at any stage of a pregnancy and doctors could face between 10 and 99 years imprisonment.
Responding to the ruling, Gaga wrote on Twitter: “It is an outrage to ban abortion in Alabama period, and all the more heinous that it excludes those have been raped or are experiencing incest non-consensual or not.
“So there’s a higher penalty for doctors who perform these operations than for most rapists?”
She added: “This is a travesty and I pray for all these women and young girls who will suffer at the hands of this system.”
Pledging her support for the women of Alabama, she wrote in the caption: “I love you Alabama prayers to all women and young girls.”
The emotional post came as Gaga continues to work on her latest album.
While she isn’t working with Mark Ronson again on her latest effort, the producer recently teased that Gaga’s latest is “incredible”.
