Cards Against Humanity is launching a 'Your State Sucks' campaign for abortion rights, calling out states it says are 'forced-birth Republican hellholes'
- The 'Your State Sucks' campaign by Cards Against Humanity is raising abortion funds in states with bans.
- 100% of the purchases from states with abortion bans will go to the National Network of Abortion Funds
The popular card game Cards Against Humanity is raising abortion funds in what the company calls "forced-birth Republican hellholes" by using funds from buyers in states with bans.
The 'Your State Sucks' campaign, which began in August, is meant "to help the people most fucked over" by abortion restrictions, according to the CAH website.
People in 22 states that have total or near-total abortion bans will have their proceeds automatically donated, but the promotion also allows for people in other states to chip in $5.
The money raised will go towards the National Network of Abortion Funds, a coalition of funds that provide assistance for people without financial means to obtain abortions.
"We don't have a specific end date for the promotion. Our plan is to continue until Clarence Thomas dies or we run out of money," a spokesperson for the game told the San Antonio Express-News.
Once an order is placed, a message pops up prompting buyers to acknowledge the donation or add $5 to the purchase. A purchaser can also decide to click a button that says "What!? I'm pro-life! I didn't agree to this."
Clicking the last button adds an additional $5 donation to the purchasers' cart with a message: "You know, sometimes people have values imposed upon them by bigger, more powerful entities, and they are forced to do things they don't want to do, like carry an unwanted pregnancy."
