Singer Olivia Rodrigo made a bold move during her concert in St Louis, Missouri, on Tuesday, March 12. The star handed out emergency contraception and condoms to her fans in response to Missouri's strict abortion laws.

Missouri's laws got tougher after the Roe v. Wade ruling changed in 2022, nearly banning abortions. Olivia's fans also got info from groups supporting abortion rights.

Fans shared posts online showing boxes of emergency contraception handed out at the concert. This pill, named "Julie," works like Plan B to stop pregnancy within 72 hours of unprotected sex.

The Missouri Abortion Fund set up booths at the concert giving out free condoms and stickers with links to abortion resources. Olivia had already announced she'd donate part of her tour earnings to support reproductive health.

She's also working with the National Network of Abortion Funds to help people facing barriers to reproductive care. Olivia's passionate about raising awareness of women's issues and supporting groups championing these causes.

Her efforts aim to make a difference and provide resources to those in need of reproductive healthcare.
