OCASIO-CORTEZ RAISES OVER $300,000 FOR
ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDING ACCESS TO SAFE ABORTIONS IN TEXAS
Fundraising spiked following Sarah Palin’s Fox News interview on Rep. AOC
(September 10, 2021) - Since September 1st, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has raised over $300,000 through email and social media channels for organizations providing much needed resources to folks seeking abortion care in Texas. The fundraiser is in response to SB 8 which bans abortion as early as 6 weeks and puts a minimum of a $10,000 bounty on anyone that helps someone obtain an abortion in Texas.
Fundraising continued after Sarah Palin gave interview on Fox News criticizing the Congresswoman’s remarks on abortion and ‘menstruating people.’
“The gutting of Roe v Wade imperils every menstruating person in the US, every person who engages in sex, and every person who values our constitutional right to privacy, said Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter in response to SB 8.
100% of the donations will go to Texas Equal Access Fund, West Fund, Whole Woman's Health Alliance, Inc., Support Your Sistah at the Afiya Center, the Lilith Fund, Frontera Fund, The Bridge Collective, Clinic Access Support Network, Fund Texas Choice, and Jane's Due Process.
Over 4,000 people have donated to the cause.
