The popular party game Cards Against Humanity has launched a new give-back campaign dubbed, “Your State Sucks,” and says the company is committed to donating 100% of its profits from orders placed in 22 states to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
CAH announced the campaign early last month following the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June.
On its website, Cards Against Humanity said all of its profits from these 22 “nightmare-states” will be donated to the National Network of Abortion Funds, which distributes money to local groups focused on helping those who can’t afford an abortion to obtain one. People in the same 22 states who place an order will be greeted with a message like the one seen below, which reads “****! You live in South Carolina, a theocratic hellscape where human beings are forced to carry unwanted pregnancies.
Under the message, buyers can either acknowledge the message or chip in an extra $5, which the company will match. There’s also a third option that states “What!? I’m pro-life! I didn’t agree to this.”
Buyers who click that button are greeted with a second message that reads “So you don’t want us using your money to pay for abortions? 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. For example, we just added an extra $5 donation to the National Network of Abortion Funds to your cart.”
The 22 states Cards Against Humanity is donating the profits from have restricted access to abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming will also be donated.
If you don’t live in one of these states, you still have the option to make a $5 donation while making a purchase on Cards Against Humanity’s website, which the company says it will match.
