We’ve previously reported that artists including St. Vincent, Kristen Stewart, John Legend, Zach Galifianakis, and CHVRCHES would be joining forces to create music and projects benefitting Planned Parenthood in these troubled political times. But since then, the roster of talent stepping up to defend the women’s rights organization has grown immensely.

A collection of singles titled “7-Inches for Planned Parenthood,” organized by the 7-Inches Collective, is now slated to feature work from musicians and comedians including but not limited to Björk, Bon Iver, Sleater-Kinney, Foo Fighters, Margaret Atwood (author of The Handmaid’s Tale), Mary J. Blige, Matt Berninger and Bryce Dessner of the National, Elliott Smith, Common, Feist, Jenny Slate, Janeane Garofalo, Laurie Anderson, Jon Brion, Mitski, Nico Muhly, Margaret Cho, Pete Holmes, Sharon Van Etten, Tig Notaro, Shepard Fairey, and more.

“Lawmakers with extreme views are working hard to shut down Planned Parenthood,” said 7-Inches in a Facebook post. “If they succeed, millions of Americans will lose access to basic health services, including STD testing and treatment, birth control, and life-saving cancer screenings.”

They continued: “7-inches for Planned Parenthood is a response to this threat. This curated series of 7-inch vinyl records is being made by a group of people who believe that access to health care is a public good that should be fiercely protected.”
