The Lumineers donating earnings from Dallas concert to Planned Parenthood

ABC/Lorenzo BevilaquaThe Lumineers will be donating the profits from their upcoming show in Dallas on February 28 to Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas.

"When we take the stage next week in Dallas, while efforts to 'defund' Planned Parenthood in Texas are underway, we have decided to donate all profits from the show to Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas," the band says in a statement.

"When my wife was a teen and young adult, Planned Parenthood provided her not only with free [and] affordable cancer screenings, contraceptives and annual checkups, but also with the education and tools to help make smart decisions regarding her health," adds lead vocalist Wesley Schultz.

"The reality for her was that Planned Parenthood was her only real way to get legitimate and affordable healthcare," he continues. "To read news stories about attempts to defund this same healthcare in Texas for so many women (and men) is disturbing and has moved us to act."

This week, a federal judge blocked Texas from attempting to cut Planned Parenthood from its Medicaid program.

The Dallas show is a part of The Lumineers' North American tour in support of their sophomore album, Cleopatra.
