Late on Wednesday night (9/1), the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to deny the request from Texas abortion providers to block the state's new near-total abortion ban, Senate Bill 8, which took effect that morning. It's one of the strictest in the nation, banning abortion after six weeks (before most people even know they're pregnant) and not allowing exceptions for rape or incest. It also allows private citizens to sue anyone they believed help someone get an abortion, from doctors and clinic workers to someone who gave a ride or provided financial assistance.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision, Lucy Dacus has announced that she'll be donating the money she makes from the Texas shows on her upcoming tour to abortion funds to help Texas residents continue to access healthcare. "All the money I make at our upcoming shows in Texas will be going towards abortion funds jsyk, if you're not cool with that don't come," she writes. "If you are cool with that (and are vaccinated) Austin and Dallas are sold out, but Houston and San Antonio are not, come thru and bring extra $ cause I'm gonna figure out a donation situation."

Lucy's Texas shows include September 17 at Trees in Dallas (sold out), September 18 at White Oak Music Hall in Houston (tickets), September 19 at Scoot Inn in Austin (sold out), and September 20 at Paper Tiger in San Antonio (tickets). She also has dates through September into October and continuing in March of 2022. See them all below, along with pictures from her intimate August show in Brooklyn.

For abortion funds in Texas to donate to, Act Blue will split your donation between 10 funds, Texas Equal Access Fund, Jane's Due Process, Frontera Fund, the Lilith Fund, Clinic Access Support Network, Fund Texas Choice, Whole Woman's Health Alliance, Inc., West Fund, Support Your Sistah at the Afiya Center, and The Bridge Collective.
