Rage Against the Machine has issued a statement expressing the band’s “support of reproductive justice.”

“[We] will continue to fight against any attempts to restrict or control reproductive freedoms,” the “Bulls on Parade” outfit writes. “Criminalizing access to abortion will only add to the suffering disproportionately felt by poor, BIPOC and undocumented communities.”

Rage’s statement comes days after Politco published a draft of a Supreme Court opinion that, if issued, would overturn federal abortion rights affirmed by the Court’s landmark by Roe v. Wade decision.

“The constant rightward shift of both major parties should alarm us all,” Rage continues. “A wake up call that we desperately need to organize radical people power against a warfare state that continues its assault on people’s lives.”
