itch.io are hosting a big Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds

By - | Views: 16,905

With the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade in the USA that threatens to remove access to abortions a bunch of indie developers have pulled together to make an Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds on itch.io.

Much like itch.io did with previous charity bundles like for Racial Justice and Equality, Palestinian Aid, Ukraine Relief and others all the funds will be going to select charities and you can donate while also grabbing a big bunch of games, game assets, physical games to print and much more.

100% of the proceeds from this bundle will go to the National Network for Abortion Fund's Collective Power Fund, which moves money directly to abortion funds across 20+ U.S. states, with a particular focus on the South and Midwest (where it is often most difficult to get access to abortions). NNAF’s partnerships with these abortion funds provide direct resources and funds to many of the people most impacted by Roe v. Wade, towards immediate action.

Some of what's included is pretty great too including:

  • Haque
  • Pushamo
  • Hypnospace Outlaw
  • Bleed
  • Bleed 2
  • Buck Up and Drive!
  • Calico
  • …and the list goes on

It has a minimum payment of $10 but you can donate more and they will be adding more items to the bundle up to July 6th. The bundle runs for another 9 days.

The main topic aside, the best argument I never hear is we don't want The State to have MORE broad powers over our bodies & individual rights.

I wish it was easier to filter and sift through the games on Itch, last time they had a bundle it took me nearly a day to download all the games and check them out.

792 items for $10

Most people probably have time to look into like 20 tops before being distracted and moving on to something else.

Hmm... I'm pro abortion rights. But I think this topic is different from say racism. I understand why some people feel strongly about abortion and couldn't possibly be positive about this.

I understand what you mean but some have taken it too far in reply to others that we’ve had to remove.

I'm not really familiar with the games, but it's for a great cause. I mean, if they outlaw abortions, sooner or later they will outlaw abort() too and then we will be in a heap of trouble!

I actually find it fascinating from a point of view that it isn't that overturning Roe v Wade is permanently banning abortion, it's just clarifying which states have 'voted' to allow it to stay around, as it's now a state level decision, and not a federal one.

Now that being said, the reason I put 'voted' in quotes is because of recently in Utah everyone voted for marijuana to be legal here. Instead the government pretty much just said 'well... it'll sort of be legal. You have to have an ailment on this very limited list, and you're not allowed to use it just for fun... or for anything besides this tiny list...' So even though the majority ruled, the ones who actually write the laws didn't pass any of the ones that were voted for.

Inevitably Utah is one that had a 'trigger' law, that had basically been in place 'just in case' Roe v Wade was overturned. Papa Gov knows best, right?

"Majority rule" is only one part of American "democracy." The other part of it is minority rights, that all people have the right to life, liberty and property. Unfortunately, most of American history has been spent arguing over what a person even is. This is a country that literally had laws saying a slave represented three-fifths of a person. There are even legal arguments for and against a corporation being treated as a "person."

Now I suppose the argument is over whether a fetus is a person with rights to be carried to term and whether it's acceptable to take away the rights of the person carrying the fetus. Sadly, the supreme court seems interested in taking away rights rather than granting them. They've already attacked the "right to remain silent" when arrested and are now taking aim at the right to vote in the gerrymandering case they're about to hear. You can bet that "Critical Race Theory" and other issues on the white supremacist agenda will be up for debate too.

You could make arguments about "state rights," but anyone with half a brain can see that's just a mirage for instituting fascism through the back door. It really is just about control, and while it's being driven by Republicans, Democrats have been complicit all along for fear of losing their own power. Honestly, and not to belittle the situation, abortion is kind of low on the list in terms of freedoms Americans should be worried about losing.

Quoting: Liam DaweJust a reminder that our comments are actively moderated. If you come along to write something crass, you will be removed. Spread positivity, not negativity.
Not everything in the world is "OK" and "positive." This whole fundraiser is negative.

I am against the cultural trend of pom poms for everything, and if you are against something, be silent. That is dangerous.

My comment here is mild enough that I expect it won't be deleted.

There's nothing dangerous about a Linux gaming site disallowing inflammatory, non-gaming related topics of discussion, if only to keep the community welcoming and inclusive. No need for the drama. Surely we can agree that you're not owed a platform and/or an audience whenever and wherever you decide to voice an opinion.

If you feel like your cause is just and important, by all means, protest and discuss to your heart's content, but please find a more suitable venue for it. Maybe one of the gazillion political discussion platforms out there, or your local pub.

Agreed, there are other, better places to waggle your tongue.

I quite disagree. That is as close to saying "get out if you disagree; you must go elsewhere and either speak in an echo chamber or a forum where only certain types of people congregate," yet anyone who supports the topic is allowed a voice EVERYWHERE it is mentioned.

If controversial topics cannot allow simple opposing opinions, then I say comments should not be allowed on those publications.

Nothing I have said can be considered inflammatory and I never said that I support emotionally heated arguments. Please don't stretch what I said beyond what I actually said.
