Olivia went to The Other Stage at Worthy Farm where she said she was ‘devastated and scared’ by the ruling that ended the constitutional right to abortion in the US, which means that individual states can decide whether abortion can be illegal be made.

Before Lily took the stage, Olivia told the audience: ‘Today is a very, very special day. This is actually my first Glastonbury, and I share the stage with Lily, which is the biggest dream ever to come true. But I’m just as sad. ‘

She said: ‘I am devastated and terrified [by the ruling] and so many women and girls will die because of it and I wanted to dedicate this next song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us at the end of the day that they really do not give a shit about freedom. ‘

After her words garnered enormous applause from the audience, Olivia addressed the Supreme Court judges individually, saying: ‘This song goes out to judges Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett, and Brett Kavanaugh. ‘

Introducing her guest artist, Olivia said: ‘Someone I absolutely adore is here today, I think she’s the most incredible songwriter, the most incredible artist, the most incredible person, and I’m so lucky she’s here sing with me today. ‘

Lily was then seen giving the middle finger as she stood on the stage, before saying, ‘We hate you!’ as the pair launched in the expletive-full song.

The Supreme Court terminates constitutional protections for abortions that have existed for nearly 50 years by deciding to reverse the 1973 Roe v Wade landmark ruling and return power to individual states to decide whether or not to proceed with the procedure to stand.

The judges held that the decision of Roe v. Wade of 1973, which allowed abortion for a fetus, would be viable outside the womb – between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy – wrongly decided because the U.S. Constitution does not make a specific mention of abortion rights.

The ruling means that individual states now have the power to decide on banning abortion. The Guttmacher Institute, a pro-choice research group, has said 26 states are ‘sure or likely’ to ban abortion now.

She went on: 'My dolls got to see today that her mother was killing Glastonbury with her favorite pop star.  I actually made them proud!  And with almost 3 years of sobriety under my belt.  So happy.'

The decision means that women with unwanted pregnancies in large parts of America will now have the choice to travel to another state where the procedure remains legal and available, buy abortion pills online or have a potentially dangerous illegal abortion.

In a White House speech, President Joe Biden said it was “a sad day for the court and the country” and cited the Supreme Court’s decision to oust Roe v. Wade to reverse – and make terminations illegal for millions of American women – ‘wrong, extreme and unattainable’.

Biden accused the court of ‘explicitly revoking a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans’, Biden promised the fight over abortion rights ‘not over’ and said his administration would do everything in its power to combat efforts to restrict women of traveling to other states to get an abortion.
