Filipino-American singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo’s concert tour in Missouri gained traction online as it offered free condoms and morning-after pills to the audience.

One of the fans who received the morning-after pill, commonly known as Plan B, was Madelyn Ritter who told The Guardian that concertgoers could get the free contraceptives from a table by the women’s bathrooms.

“They told me it was free, so my sister, her friend and I all took some. I personally don’t need it, but I’m going to save it in case something bad happens,” Ritter told The Guardian.

Planned Parenthood describes morning-after pills as a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy by delaying ovulation. It should be taken up to five days after unprotected sex, but it cautioned that the longer you wait to take it, the less effective it is.

Rodrigo earlier launched the Fund 4 Good campaign jointly with the GUTS world tour, a global initiative which protects women’s reproductive health freedom.

According to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s website, Rodrigo partnered with the local chapters of the National Network of Abortion Funds in ensuring that those “most impacted by systemic racism, misogyny, and healthcare barriers” receive the reproductive care they deserve.

Although abortion is illegal in Missouri, The Guardian reported that the staff by the women’s bathrooms tables would connect teens to “abortion care out of state, birth control and information about their rights.”
