Additional musicians and bands who have signed the petition include Beck, The 1975, Band of Horses, Billie Eilish, Third Eye Blind, CHVRCHES, Death Cab for Cutie, The Distillers, Grouplove, HAIM, Heart, Fiona Apple, K.Flay, Kim Gordon, morgxn, The National, Phantogram, Portugal. the Man, Sleater-Kinney, Spoon, St. Vincent and X Ambassadors.

The petition is active and available to sign at IStandwithPP.org. The campaign aims to collect a half a million signatures in time for the anniversary of Roe v. Wade in January of 2020.
