Playboy Donates $25,000 to Abortion Charity in Response to Alabama Law

Playboy Magazine announced that they are donating $25,000 to a women’s reproductive rights advocacy group in response to Alabama’s new restrictions on abortion.

Earlier this week, the Alabama Senate approved legislation that almost completely bans abortion in the state, even in cases of incest and rape. The bill states that performing an abortion at any stage of pregnancy is punishable by 99 years or even life in prison, so it’s facing a number of legal challenges because of the contrasts it has with Roe V. Wade.

The law has drawn criticism from numerous corners over the last few days, and on Wednesday night, Playboy decried it as “unconstitutional” and promised a significant donation to the National Network of Abortion Funds.
