Singer-songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle has posted a never-before-heard song titled “Forever, as the Setting Son” for sale on Bandcamp for $1.00 or donation amount of your choice. 100% of the proceeds from the song’s sale will be donated to Planned Parenthood Federal and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund to support policies and programs that help aid women in choices about family planning and reproductive health.
Emma Ruth Rundle states:
“’Forever, as the Setting Son’ was written and recorded in a humble lo-fi setting in Los Angeles some years ago. Yes it’s ‘Son’ and yes it’s noisy and emotional, all reasons why I couldn’t bring myself to ever re-track this song. I find myself filled with grief these days, similar to that expressed in the song, over many of the issues we as humans, as tenants of the Earth, will face in the coming era. While I am unable to join the marches set to take place all over the U.S. on Saturday, I would like to offer this song and will be donating all the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. I have been grateful for them in my life, as a young woman, and hope that we can come together to preserve the future of such an important institution in this divisive time so that they may continue to provide care for people of all races, religions, sexes, countries of origin, all genders. Be excellent to each other.”
Planned Parenthood Mission Statement:
Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.
Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual, to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality, to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications.
