Cards Against Humanity will donate profits from new packs to abortion funds
Cards Against Humanity is donating all of its 22-state profits to the National Network of Abortion Funds, the company said Wednesday. The list of states whose profits will be donated includes governments that will either ban, limit, or likely limit access to abortion. The move comes over a month after the Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to abortion in the United States.
The company announced the news with the offbeat flair that it and its games are known for. “Your state sucks,” the site’s header begins in all-white, bold text. “Today we’re releasing some new packages,” the website says. “But while the packs were being printed, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, and your state instantly turned into a dystopian forced birth hellscape.”
If you live in the following states, all profits from your purchases with Cards Against Humanity (not just the new card packs) will go to support 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, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
You can also check out the full list of new packages on the website. Options include a Scary Pack with cards about sex imps and serial killers, a Written by Kids Pack with cards written by “real kids”, a Picture Card Pack, and a new version of the Climate Catastrophe Pack if you want to dig into it the mood of doom even more. This isn’t the first time the company has gotten political. In 2018, the company gave out free extensions to registered voters in five states to participate in voting.
Although the company is known for its cheeky voice, it has changed a lot since the first pack was released in 2011. In 2020, co-founder Max Temkin resigned after allegations that he had encouraged what workers described as racist and sexist company culture that had disproportionately impacted Black employees. Allegations of sexual assault also surfaced again at the time against co-founder Max Temkin. The employees later announced that they would also unionize after the allegations.
The board game company shared the donation along with a poll it was conducting to ask people about the reversal Roe v. calf. In an FAQ about the donation, the organizers address possible skeptics about the move. Here’s what the site has to say about that: “Why don’t you finger your asshole while watching Home Shopping Network?”
