The company said Wednesday that Cards Against Humanity is donating all of its profits from 22 states to the National Network of Abortion Fund. States whose profits will be donated include governments that have banned, banned, or potentially banned abortion. The move comes a month after the Supreme Court struck down the constitutional right to abortion in the United States.
The company announced the news with its edgy flair and what its games are known for. “Your state sucks,” said the head of the website in all white, bold text. The website said, ‘Today we are releasing some new packs. “But while the packs were being printed, the Supreme Court reversed Roe v. Wade, and your state immediately turned into a dystopian forced birth hell.”
If you live in the following states, all profits from your purchase with Cards Against Humanity (not just the new card pack) 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.

Doom and gloom even more so. This is not the first time the company has turned political. In 2018, the company gave free extensions to registered voters in five states to cast their votes.
