Last year, I participated in a 24 hour gaming stream as part of Play 4 Planned Parenthood, a fundraising organization to raise funds to ensure that women’s reproductive rights and access to abortion resources were protected. You all stepped up in a huge way and together we raised just over $1200 for Planned Parenthood.
And now, I need you all again.
This month, Alabama pushed through a bill that would that would ban abortion services throughout the state. Doctors found performing abortions could face up to 99 years in prison, even in cases where pregnancies were caused by rape and incest. This is, quite frankly, outrageous and infuriating and advances the goal of squashing women’s rights to health care (abortion is health care!).
So I come to you, hat in hand, to help me raise money again. This time, for the Yellowhammer Fund, an organization in Alabama that provides resources on health care and abortion services (including transportation), which are still legal in the state’s three practicing abortion centers for the next six months unless successful legal battles can stop the countdown.
I invite all of you to come and hang out with me during my 24 hour stream, which begins at 9:00am PST on Saturday May 25, 2019 and continue through Sunday at 9:00am PST. Or longer!
