The song is part of a benefit for reproductive justice, and all proceeds from sales on Bandcamp will go to NOISE FOR NOW, a national initiative that supports grassroots organizations and access to abortion.

“Fight To Make It” has Price’s unmistakable twang, and its verses are delivered with the same fiery passion and conviction as his best work. Price’s vocals are joined by those of Mavis Staples and Adia Victoria, who provide haunting harmonies on the chorus. The song is a rallying cry for women across America to fight for the rights to their own reproductive health decisions.
On the song and the current state of the country, Margo Price says:
“Every day I see more of our rights stripped away in America. The right to reproductive health in this country has become a luxury for the wealthy. The United States has a higher maternal mortality rate than any other developed country. black women in particular experience maternal mortality at a rate two to three times higher than white women Tennessee now has stricter abortion laws than the Taliban This should not be a political issue, or a question religion is a matter of human rights.
When we stand together and sing together, we are stronger. Many thanks to my friend Adia Victoria for joining me and to our common heroine, the legendary Mavis Staples for adding the wisdom and strength of her voice. His art and activism have long inspired me and I am grateful to him for his contribution to song.
Margo Price is known for her boundless writing and raw, unvarnished delivery. She is also known for being a champion of underrepresented artists in the industry, and that includes women.
