Olivia Rodrigo has been passing out Plan B pills and condoms to concertgoers who want them


Fans at an Olivia Rodrigo concert in St. Louis, Missouri earlier this week came home with more than just great memories: free emergency contraceptives and condoms that were handed out at the show.

An attendee at the concert posted a photo of the emergency contraception she received at the show to X (formerly Twitter), where it went viral.

“Free plan B at Olivia Rodrigo in St. Louis tonight,” she wrote. “Thank you, Missouri Abortion Fund.”

A spokesperson from the Missouri Abortion Fund told Today.com their organization worked with “Right By You,” another Missouri-based nonprofit that provides a text line for pregnancy education, to pass out the goods and provide education at Rodrigo’s show at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis on March 12.

“This is just a normal part of what many abortion funds, including Missouri Abortion Fund, bring to our community tabling events,” the spokesperson said. “We want to ensure that Missourians have maximum control over their own reproductive health care. We appreciate Olivia lifting up abortion funds, especially as many funds have seen a decrease in donations since 2023.”

The spokesperson couldn’t confirm whether similar giveaways will take place at other concerts during Rodrigo’s ongoing tour. However, when Rodrigo launched her “Guts” world tour in February, she also announced the “Fund 4 Good,” a fundraising effort to support organizations that are increasing access to reproductive healthcare.

“The ‘Fund 4 Good’ works to support all women, girls and people seeking reproductive health freedom,” Rodrigo said in a TikTok video at the time. “The fund will directly support community-based non-profits that champion things like girls’ education, support reproductive rights and prevent gender-based violence.”

She added that, “A portion of all of the proceeds from the ticket sales of the Guts world tour will go to the ‘Fund 4 Good’ — which I’m very excited about — and for the North American leg of the Guts world tour, I’ll be partnering with the National Network of Abortion Funds to help those impacted by healthcare barriers in getting the reproductive care they deserve.”
