Cards Against Humanity announced that it would donate all of its earnings from 22 states to the National Network of Abortion Funds. The list of states that will receive their earnings will include governments that have either banned, restricted, or would likely limit abortion access.
The company announced the news with the edgy flair it and its games are famous for. Your state sucks, the head of the website begins with said in all white, bold text. Today, we are releasing some new packs, the website said. However, while the packs were being printed, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and your state immediately became a dystopian forced-birth landscape.
All profits from cards Against Humanity purchases (not just the new card packs) will go to the National Network of Abortion Funds: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
If you want to lean into the doom and gloom, you can get the whole list of new packs on the website as well. In 2018, the company gave away free expansions to registered voters in five states.
The company has changed a lot since the first pack was released in 2011. Co-founder Max Temkin resigned following allegations that he promoted a racist and sexist company culture that disproportionately affected Black employees. The sexual assault charges against him also surfaced later. Employees announced that they would be unionizing as a result of the allegations.
The board game company shared the donation alongside a poll it conducted in which it addressed skeptics about the reverse of Roe v. Wade. Here is what the website has to say: Why shouldn't you avoid pointing your finger while watching the Home Shopping Network?
