Eat a taco, drink a beer, and donate to an abortion fund

tacos, beer, abortionToday is the second annual Taco and Beer Challenge! It’s a bit of a misnomer since the only real requirement is to donate to an abortion fund, while the beer and taco part is optional.

I don’t need to tell you why abortion funds deserve your support: We all know that poor people in the US don’t have a real right to safe, legal abortion care, and abortion funds are working hard to do what our government doesn’t: ensure that a lack of money doesn’t force anyone into childbirth.

Here’s the official ToBC Tumblr and a list of abortion funds that could use your dollars. Securing your taco and/or beer is on you.
