Earlier this year, Margo Price shared a cover of Leslie Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me” with the intent of raising funds for Noise For Now, an initiative that links artists with grassroots reproductive rights organizations. With the fears we’d had back in March turning into realities last month with the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Price is returning with another benefit single called “Fight to Make It,” this time enlisting Mavis Staples and Adia Victoria for the original anthem.
“Every day I see more of our rights stripped away in America,” Price shared in a press release for the track, co-written with her partner Jeremy Ivey. “The right to reproductive health in this country has become a luxury for the wealthy. The United States has a higher maternal death rate than any other developed country. Black women in particular experience maternal mortality at a rate two to three times higher than white women. Tennessee now has stricter abortion laws than the Taliban. This should not be a political issue, or a religious issue, this is a human rights issue.”
