Ariana Grande donated $300,000 to Planned Parenthood after playing a show in Atlanta this week, TMZ reports. Grande gave the money, proceeds from her Sweetener tour stop at the State Farm Arena, in the wake of Atlanta Governor Brian Kemp signing one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the nation in May. The "fetal heartbeat law" effectively bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy, a point when doctors can begin detecting a fetal heartbeat.

Georgia is the fourth state to enact the law this year. Rihanna was among many musicians and celebrities to speak out when a similar law was passed in Alabama last month.

The FADER has contacted Ariana Grande and Planned Parenthood for comment.
