The 1975's Matty Healy advocates for "freedom for women to do with their reproductive systems what they want".

During The 1975's set at Hangout Fest in Alabama on Friday night, frontman Matty Healy spoke out in support of women's rights, saying that, "The reason I’m so angry is because I don’t believe [the ban] is about the preservation of life, I believe it’s about the controlling of women. It's not about that, you can hide behind that as much as you want and push your Christian narrative that sex is something to be ashamed of and therefore forcing women to have birth as some kind of 'good punishment' for their moral indiscretions. You are a disgrace, you are not men of god, you are simply misogynistic wankers."
