Pearl Jam Gives Trump Administration a Big Middle Finger Over Planned Parenthood

If you’re following the antics of the Trump administration, you’re away that it plans to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that offers health care and support to millions of women. Pearl Jam thinks this is an abomination, so they’re doing something about it.

The band is going to donate 100% of the proceeds they get from T-shirt sales and 25% of all merch sold their online store this weekend to Planned Parenthood. Jeff Ament:

We’ve been wanting to do something to help since we heard about the defunding and closure of some of the more isolated clinics, like El Paso and Midland, that has resulted in women having to drive hundreds of miles for reproductive care. Planned Parenthood is being threatened with massive cuts and it’s more important than ever to show our support for one of our favorite organizations.

Here’s an example of a shirt you can get. Read more about Pearl Jam’s stance at Loudwire.
