Lady Gaga is speaking against abortion bans and restrictions across the United States Of America.
During a Washington, D.C., concert as part of her Chromatica Ball tour on Monday August 8th, the singer, 36, dedicated her performance of “The Edge of Glory” to women across the nation.
“I would like to dedicate this song to every woman in America,” Gaga said while sitting on a piano. She added that her dedication went toward “every woman who now has to worry about her body if she gets pregnant.”
“I pray that this country will speak up, that we will stick together, and that we will not stop until it’s right!”
Gaga then began singing her 2011 hit while getting emotional many times during the song. “You just got to keep believing it’s gonna be okay,” she said mid-performance.
At the end of her slowed-down rendition, Gaga added, “I didn’t mean to be a downer, but there’s some sh*t that’s more important than show business.”

Gaga’s dedication at her concert earlier this week does not mark the first time the “Shallow” singer has shown support for abortion rights.
Back in 2019, Gaga spoke out alongside Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Lizzo and more as part of Planned Parenthood’s #BansOffMyBody campaign.
“It is an outrage to ban abortion in Alabama period,” Gaga said in a post, referring to a then-new law signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey. “And all the more heinous that it excludes those that have been r*ped or are experiencing incest non-consensual or not.”
“This is a travesty and I pray for all these women and young girls who will suffer at the hands of this system,” Gaga added at the time.
Gaga is currently traveling the globe as part of her long-awaited Chromatica Ball Summer Stadium tour.
After a two-year delay, the concert event which was originally postponed in June 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic kicked off with a sold-out show in front of 54,000 people at the Merkur Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany, on July 17.
