Paramore’s Hayley Williams Returns To Social Media To Protest The Abortion Ban
Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams returned to her official Instagram account to protest the abortion ban in the United States. Williams reacted by mentioning how furious she was at this decision.
Previously, Hayley Williams announced that she would not use her social media accounts. Williams also decided to delete all posts on her Instagram as she did not want to share her personal life on social media anymore. According to the rocker, although the internet provided a connection between people, it was an obstacle to creating a boundary between public and private life.
Williams returned to Instagram to talk about rumors spread in the previous month that the court would ban abortion altogether. While some women supported this decision, many others advocated it was against women’s rights. The vocalist expressed her concerns about a possible abortion ban and stated that it was a women’s right to have an abortion.
Recently abortion has been almost completely banned in certain states of America. While some women were on the side of this decision, many others reacted angrily to the judgment because it violated their rights. Hayley Williams returned to her Instagram again to respond to this decision.
The singer stated that this decision interfered with women’s rights. According to the lead vocalist, the state opposed abortion for the army to have more soldiers in the future, which would not take care of that many children. Williams stated that she was so angry and tired that she wanted to reopen her account to protest this decision. She thanked everyone who advocated women’s rights and said she had hope.
In her IG post, Hayley Williams wrote:
“It still feels impossible to comprehend that we live in a country divided on basic human rights, namely healthcare and women’s reproductive rights. If recent history shows a pattern, and it does, you’d have to imagine when these children are forcibly brought into this world that this country won’t take care of them but rather teach them to take cover. What are we f*cking doing? I’m so angry and tired. I’m not the only one.
I don’t post things personally/myself on this app anymore, but I redownloaded this morning to say something because it felt weird to have our team post my angry feelings for me. I know that there are countless org leaders, activists, and citizens of this country who are on here doing thankless work to make any semblance of progress. Keeping hope alive. Thank you so much to people who are fighting for women’s rights daily, and in ways I’ll never even know. Today is not the end.”
