Olivia Rodrigo reverses course on free contraceptives at GUTS World Tour

St. Louis, Missouri - Olivia Rodrigo has reportedly shifted gears on the reproductive health resources available at her sold-out GUTS World Tour after going viral for offering fans free emergency contraceptives.

The 21-year-old singer is traveling the country on her latest concert series in support of her sophomore album, and she's used the opportunity to fight against strict abortion bans in the US.

As part of the effort, Olivia has partnered with local abortion funds to host booths at each tour stop with information about abortion access, contraceptives, and other resources related to reproductive health.

However, after widespread coverage of free morning-after pills being distributed at her show in Missouri, her team has reportedly drawn a new line in the sand.

As reported by Variety on Friday, the National Network of Abortion Funds (NNAF) informed employees that local funds cannot distribute "lubrication, condoms, and Plan B" at the shows anymore due to the many fans in attendance who are underage.

Jane Hurley of the DC Abortion Fund criticized the decision and told the outlet, "The reality is that youth have sex, and youth need access to birth control and emergency contraception. What we're doing is completely legal in all 50 states."

Olivia has been an outspoken advocate for abortion rights in the US throughout her career.

A portion of her ticket sales from the GUTS World Tour have gone to the Fund 4 Good, a new charity fund she launched to support causes including "girls' education, support reproductive rights, and prevent gender-based violence."

During her SOUR Tour in 2022, the Grammy winner paused a show in Washington DC to speak out against the impending reversal of Roe v. Wade.

Olivia's team has not commented on the new decision, but the abortion funds noted that it was their choice to distribute contraceptives, not the singer's.

Despite the new restrictions, the local groups will continue sharing "informational materials" about reproductive health as previously planned.
