New Cards Against Humanity Packs Know Your State Sucks Too

The upcoming Cards Against Humanity packs will donate all profits to the National Network of Abortion Funds in all states affected by the overturning of Roe v Wade. The National Network of Abortion Funds, or NNAF, works to make abortions more available to those who need one. The funds donated to NNAF are used to remove barriers many communities face with access to abortions.

Cards Against Humanity is a long-running card game that got its start from a Kickstarter campaign back in 2011. It has since amassed widespread popularity. This also isn’t the first time Cards Against Humanity has gotten political. In 2016, the “America Votes” pack was released which contained jokes about candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, with profits going to support the Clinton campaign. The developers also formed a political action committee named “The Nuisance Committee,” which has taken actions such as buying billboards for the sole purpose of annoying Trump and his supporters and started campaigns to protest against the Trump administration and the proposed US-Mexico border wall.

Cards Against Humanity will be donating 100% of all new card pack profits made in certain states, along with an additional $100,000, to the National Network of Abortion Funds. Under the name “Your State Sucks,” Cards Against Humanity describes its latest campaign as an effort help those affected by the overturning of Roe v Wade. The states where purchases will be donated are the ones that have already made plans and actions toward making abortions illegal within state lines. The states included are 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. In addition to the donations, Cards Against Humanity asked people from the affected states some questions regarding what they know about abortion and how it’s already been affected by the overturn. The statement “You will unfortunately believe what we found” was shared along with their results. The new packs affected by this campaign include the “Scary Pack” and “Written by Kids Pack,” along with several posters.

In typical Cards Against Humanity style, the creator of the card game was very blunt about its plans for the new campaign. The developer’s attitude toward the Supreme Court’s ruling is clear. However, as the company’s research and polls show, there are still many people in the affected states who are either uninformed about or wholeheartedly against abortion and casual sex. “Your State Sucks” aims to help both raise money and get more people informed.

With multiple packs and posters released at the same time as this message, there is hope that this new campaign will raise money for the National Network of Abortion Funds. Despite controversies that Cards Against Humanity has faced in the past, the company is taking a bold stance on this issue, and time will tell how the campaign progresses.
