Selena Gomez nary shies away from opening up about difficult topics. 

Last year when she underwent a serious and life-saving kidney transplant surgery, she opened up about how it affected her daily life. The actor and singer has also be extremely honest about her struggles with mental illness and how social media affects her sense of self-worth. 

In the midst of one of the largest attacks on abortion rights since Roe vs. Wade, Gomez took the opportunity to speak up in support of women's rights and reproductive health care. 

Gomez made her stance on abortion rights clear with this Instagram post after Georgia and Alabama enacte "heartbeat bills." 

"To see what is happening right now in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and several other states in our country is not only deeply upsetting but seems that it can’t possibly be real in 2019. It’s no one’s business what a woman chooses to do with her body. End of story. If you want to help fight this, click on the link in my bio to find out how you can volunteer or make a donation," Gomez wrote in her post. 

Abortion remains legal in all 50 states, but some conservative state governments have tried to pass bans and criminal action against women who get abortions. Gomez is among many celebrities to publicly state their support for abortion rights. 

The actor wore a Chanel dress with a necklace featuring the year "1973" written in bold, gold lettering from Sophie Ratner Jewelry. 

The Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion was made in 1973 during the Roe v. Wade trial. 46 years later, some states are attempting to overturn that monumental decision, and Gomez doesn't stand for it. In an interview on Live With Kelly and Ryan, the artist wore a blue Chanel dress and the statement necklace.  

The fine jewelry brand will donate a portion of the proceeds for this necklace to the Physicians for Reproductive Health, a group of doctors advocating for unrestricted reproductive health access. 

The jewelry account shared Gomez's stylist Kate Young's photo of the star wearing the necklace: "@selenagomez wearing our 1973 necklace. Thank you so much for your support of women’s reproductive health and equal rights. 1973 is the year that Roe v Wade was passed and we worked with the amazing team at @prhdocs to create this necklace. Their organization receives 30% of the proceeds from each necklace."

The dainty style of these poignant statement pieces are perfect as a part of your everyday collection or for special occasions. Sophie Ratner created this collection with the Physicians for Reproductive health as a way to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. 

The brand released a statement alongside the drop of its products, "Please join your allies across the country and proudly wear this necklace to remind people everywhere that we must continue to fight for equality and access for reproductive health here in the United States, and throughout the world."

The necklace that Gomez wore is also available on the site for a hefty price that does go to a good cause. It is also available in white or rose gold if this bright option isn't your style. Or if you want to really go all out, there is an $850 diamond version.

"Here’s to 1973, and all the fabulous women and men who helped make that groundbreaking decision of Roe v Wade possible. And remember, choice matters!" the brand's statement continues. 

Fans of the musician and actor were grateful for her support. 

"THIS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE STATEMENT SELENA HAS EVER MADE. THANK YOU." One supporter commented on the photo. Gomez is making an important political stance with this necklace, and her previous post. Now, that the 26-year-old is promoting films and new music, she has the opportunity to take a stand on her beliefs. 

Gomez discussed her friendship with costar Bill Murray in her interview with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. 

"I just feel like he's one of the funniest people I've ever met, and he's so genuine and so kind," Gomez said. The two have a goofy and close relationship after starring together in the new film, The Dead Don't Die. That's apparent as Ripa pointed out Murray often whispers in Gomez's ear on red carpets, to which the actor shared that he usually says "just the dumbest things."

The star studded cast of the recently released zombie horror-comedy showed up to the film's premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. 

Adam Driver, Chlöe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi Murray, and Gomez all appear in the upcoming zombie movie that released to theaters on June 14. Gomez's character is the "cool girl" Zoe in the town of Centerville that gets overrun by hordes of the undead that come back to life to do what they did best while living. For Carol Kane's undead character that's drinking a hearty glass of Chardonnay. 

Gomez also revealed in her interview that new music is to be expected later this year. 

The singer and songwriter shared that she recently finished an album that was nearly four years in the making. Her latest album was Revival in 2015, which gave us hits like "Hands To Myself" and "Same Old Love." 

Of course, since then she has released collaborative projects like her most recent "I Can't Get Enough" with Benny Blanco, J Balvin, and Tainy. She also released singles "Bad Liar," "Fetish," "Wolves," and "Back To You" in that time.
