Billie Eilish addresses Texas about abortion law in Austin during a performance: "I'm sick of old men"

Grammy-winning singer took to the stage during the show to perform some her hits. She did however, take a moment to talk politics and refused to hold back when she spoke out against the abortion law.

Star Jennifer Lopez admitted she nearly didn't go to the show because of the law. It went into effect Sept. 1, after being upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision. This is the most stringent abortion law in the country. Critics claim that many women don’t know they’re pregnant until six weeks, which is the time when a fetal beat can be detected. The law does not allow for exceptions for incest or rape. Citizens can also sue anyone who helps women to get an abortion.

Eilish stated, via Yahoo Entertainment: "I'm sick of old men." "Keep the f--- off of our bodies!"

As the words "Bans Off Our Bodies", flashed behind her, it was clear that the outburst was planned.

Eilish said, "When they made that law, I almost didn’t want to do it, because I wanted the punishment for this f---ing country for allowing that to occur here." Then I realized that you guys are the f---ing victim, and that you deserve all the glory in the world.

After a call to action, she said that concertgoers should "tell them to shut up", before raising her middle finger. This prompted a significant number of people to do the same.

Austin360 reports that Eilish also addressed the topic of climate change. Her notes on the subject were however a little more blunt.

She said to the crowd, "If you don’t believe global warming exists you’re a f---ing lostr." Yahoo points out that Eilish has previously been a critic of the Texas law and took to her Instagram Story last month saying that she was "so tired"

She said, "It makes me sick that so many men don't care about women's rights."
