- Billie Eilish has said that she is “tired” of men who won’t speak up for women’s rights.
- The comments come as Texas introduces a harsh ban on almost-all abortions.
- Other celebrities have spoken up too, to condemn the Fetal Heartbeat Bill.
Pop star Billie Eilish has lashed out at men who “say nothing” about women’s rights and abortion access in America.
The comments come in light of the introduction of Texas’ fetal heartbeat bill – which all but bans abortion, only giving the option to people who find out they’re less than six weeks pregnant.
“I really wish men cared more,” 19-year-old Eilish wrote on her Instagram story on September 3. “I’m so fucking tired.”
Eilish added: “Makes me sick how many men say nothing when it comes to women’s rights.”
In addition, the 19-year-old posted an image reading: “If you and your ‘homies’ or bros’ aren’t talking about the abortion laws in Texas, chances are you’re part of a problem.”
Joining the popular hashtag #BansOffOurBodies on Twitter, Reese Witherspoon wrote, “I stand with the women of Texas who have the Constitutional right to make decisions about their health and their own bodies.”

Singer Pink wrote: “I stand in solidarity with people in TX who, as of today, face an extreme 6-week abortion ban. This ban, #SB8, will be the blueprint for bans across the US. Unless we do something about it. #BansOffOurBodies“

Human Rights organizations have condemned the new law, with Amnesty International USA’s Gender, Sexuality, and Identity Programme Director said in a statement: “This ban will have dire consequences; it endangers pregnant people’s lives and criminalizes healthcare providers for providing vital care – it must be condemned unequivocally.
“The only person who should ever make decisions about a pregnancy is the pregnant person.”
