Since I had two tacos (I really like tacos), I donated to the National Network of Abortion Funds and also to Exhale, because post-abortion support is also important. I donated $15 to both, so $30 total.
I’m tagging everyone who reads this! (Reminder not to drink if you’re under the legal age!)
So, I was, like, “Hmm…they’re both good causes I believe in, so I’ll do both. AT THE SAME TIME.”
Here is that video. I realize I forgot to tag people. So, I’m tagging three women whose humor, grace, kindness and ferocity inspire me: sarabenincasa, Amelia McDonnell-Perry of thefrisky and Carol Hartsell of huffpostcomedy. They can do one, either or both.
A number of you have written into the #TacoOrBeerChallenge tumblr with the suggestion that the Challenge’s founder “abort” herself. This proposal has been further explored and expounded upon on Twitter by a particularly vocal and especially thoughtful group of erudite individuals.
The Taco Or Beer Challenge has taken your proposal under advisement, but the Taco Or Beer Challenge regrets to inform you that it will not be implemented at this time. Thank you so much for your helpful input and your powerful witness in the light of the glory of Jesus Christ.
Y'all do know about this, right? tacoorbeerchallenge invites you to do exactly what it says on the tin. We picked up the taco supplies yesterday and we have beer (and mead) in the fridge. Photos to come, maybe even my recipe for super cheap, healthy, vegan “taco meat” that my kid loves.
Oh, hey there! It’s me, Lauren, enjoying a TACO and a BEER and FUNDING ABORTIONS FOR THE NEW JERSEY ABORTION ACCESS FUND. That’s right – I took the Taco Or Beer Challenge! Please watch me eat a taco/drink a beer/fund abortions, and then go do the same for the Abortion Fund of your choice!
We had 24-25 people over the course of our #TacoOrBeerChallenge in Houston. I am making two donations: Lilith Fund & Jane’s Due Process, both doing the hard work of helping people actually access abortion care.
The Georgia Reproductive Justice Access Network partnered with Feminist Women’s Health Center-Atlanta to take the Taco or Beer Challenge last night! More than 50 people came out and helped us raise $680 for abortion access and reproductive justice work in the southeast. Learn more about GRJAN or donate to support our work.
