Rage Against the Machine have spoken out after the Supreme Court’s draft opinion voting to overturn Roe v. Wade — a decision that would end the federal right to abortion in America — was leaked earlier this week.

“Rage Against the Machine stands in support of reproductive justice and will continue to fight against any attempts to restrict or control reproductive freedoms,” the strongly worded statement begins. “Criminalizing access to abortion will only add to the suffering disproportionately felt by poor, BIPOC and undocumented communities.”

“The constant rightward shift of both major parties should alarm us all,” it 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.”
