Travis Scott performed at Hangout Fest in Alabama this weekend and announced he'd be donating proceeds from his merch table to Planned Parenthood during his set at the Gulf Shores Public Beach. The news comes in the wake of a new Alabama law that bans abortion in almost all instances.

In a video from the moment, Scott doesn't outright mention the abortion ban, but he reminded fans that "love is the strongest thing that we can have" before performing SZA's "Love Galore."

This year, eight states have passed bills to limit or outright ban abortions.

Celebrities such as Rihanna have recently spoken out against the Alabama bill.
