Lady Gaga defends abortion rights in concert in the US
Lady Gaga protested for the right to abortion and gay marriage during her concert at the “Chromatica Ball” in Washington, capital of the US, on Monday (8).
Just before starting the song “The Edge Of Glory”, Gaga spoke about the decision of the US Supreme Court that in June struck down the “Roe v. Wade” law that made abortion legal at the federal level in the country.
“I would like to dedicate this song to all the women of America. For every woman who now has to worry about her body getting pregnant. I pray that this country speaks up, that we stay together and that we don’t stop until it’s right! For every woman,” she told the audience of more than 40,000 in attendance.

A little earlier, Gaga returned to show her support for the LGBTQIA+ community by singing the hit “Born This Way”. “This may not be the national anthem, but it’s our national anthem! They better not try to mess with gay marriage in this country!” she declared, before starting the song.
