A second bundle (yes there's two) supporting people in the USA following the overturning of Roe v. Wade is live on itch.io with the Worthy of Better, Stronger Together for Reproductive Rights bundle. The other is the Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds covered in a previous article.

June 24th, 2022 was a harrowing day for civil liberties. In the United States, basic human rights are being stripped away. It is a stark reminder that even after 50 years of legal protection, equality can be so easily lost. To say nothing of the dangerous precedent this decision sets for other civil rights protections, we believe that the right for a person to pursue safe and legal abortions is more than enough reason to stand up and take action. This decision does not only effect those capable of becoming pregnant. It is a determination of what rights we as a society choose to hold sacred. It is a question of  who is deemed worthy of protecting. The fabric of our society is woven by every single member, to erode a single thread unravels us all. We must all take a stand and demand that our rights and bodily autonomy are federally recognized

This is a charity bundle as well with all proceeds being split between these two charities:

You can pay $10 (or more) to support it and gain access to 169 different items spread across games, tools and more including some gems like:

  • The Away Team
  • Aground
  • Not Actually A DOS Game
  • Sally Face

The bundle is up for the next 11 days.

Ok, now that I've got everything in both bundles, I should probably figure out how to get "Bottles" working.
A great initiative !

Just a reminder that our comments are actively moderated. If you come along to write something crass, you will be removed. Spread positivity, not negativity.
Unfortunately this is not something that can be dealt with by donating a little money while sitting at your computer. This is something where people have to go outside an make their voices heard and their numbers seen. From the outside It is sad to see the US so dug in on it's internal frontlines in recent years that few seem to be able to see what is fair or just anymore, let alone act upon it. I hope one day you will be able to break out of this two sided power struggle and find your heart again to work towards a better future for everyone.

With the decision, Democracy in the USA is shown to be stepping in the correct direction! Removing the choice from the people is something governments, at a national level, have done for thousands (?) of years. Now the choice of forging our own future on this matter has been rightfully returned to individual states where the citizens get to decide for themselves how they wish to be governed. This bundle SHOULD be raising money promoting the freedom to choose our own paths, instead of going to organizations/efforts that wish to strip away the rights of the people to Democratically vote for their own rulers who represent THEM.

If a bundle comes along that supports the rights of citizens to make their voices heard in the democratically way our founders intended, then it will be a bundle worth supporting.

That's a lot of clever dancing to get around the basic fact that the decision strips actual choice and rights away from a lot of actual people. I'll admit I have been wondering how a bunch of people who normally are all about yelling "Freeeedoooommm!" manage to square this with taking people's freedom away. So the idea is it's OK to take real people's rights away as long as in the process you give rights to a . . . legal entity. Because that's whose rights are really important, and it's much better for this slightly smaller legal entity to have them than that somewhat larger one. Got it.

You've always seemed like a voice of reason so I'll be kind to you in my response. It seems like many people are not aware of how the Colonies (er, US Constitution) determines what rights the citizenry has. The Constitution is a document detailing the LIMITS of the federal government. Everything not specifically enumerated in the Constitution (and its amendments) is the right of the individual States to decide. The overturned decision is not and was never defined in the founding documents or subsequent articles, and until 1973 was left to individual states (the voting citizens) to decide for themselves how they wish to address the subject matter and that right has now been restored.

How other way than to return the power to the people could Democracy be defined?

If complaints of "Freedom" and "our Democracy is being destroyed" are what you are referring to, then perhaps a good long think about what freedom looks like is necessary.

The point of the US Constitution was to be a flexible framework. The Founders knew that there would be things that they hadn't dreamed of that would need such flexibility. The idea that because something wasn't enumerated in the beginning that it can't possibly be within the domain of the federal government is a false one.

The idea that it is better to return certain things to the states to decide has a history. We fought a civil war over it. One side won that debate through a lot of bloodshed.

And yet the rhetoric keeps getting repeated, and it sounds so innocent and earnestly about freedom when in fact it is often double-speak for driving the opposite outcome.

In a country that claims to value freedom as a whole, it makes no sense to say "And we'll turn it to the states to let the people decide if YOU get to have the same freedoms." We, in fact, tried that, and it turned out to be a terrible idea.
