Abortion Tacos Are the New Ice Buckets

Feel free to dump stuff on your head for charity. We're going to eat some tacos and drink some beers for abortion rights. They call it the #TacoOrBeerChallenge

You know what’s a lot easier than dumping a stupid ice bucket over your head? Eating a taco. And drinking a beer.

In a charity Internet meme we can really get behind, a reporter named Andrea Grimes—who writes for the abortion rights site Reality Check—cooked up the #TacoOrBeerChallenge. The premise? Consume one or both of those delicious things and then donate to an abortion access cause.

“What do ice buckets have to do with ALS? I don’t know. What do tacos and beer have to do with abortion? I don’t know that either,” Grimes wrote today. “What I do know is that eating tacos and drinking beer is more pleasurable than getting doused with ice water, and that lawmakers around the country are passing increasingly restrictive anti-abortion access laws.”

Such legislation, often called TRAP laws (as in Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers), makes it increasingly difficult, and at times impossible, for abortion clinics to operate, which means women need more assistance than ever to find safe and legal options. Many of these nonprofits help cover the resulting costs, like traveling hundreds of miles from home to find the nearest clinic.

You know you’re going to eat at Chipotle or have a beer at some point this week anyway, so why not donate while you’re at it? It’s all about the simple pleasures. Below, some early adopters who’ve already accepted the challenge.

  • Abortion is absolutely NOT a right! LIFE is a right! The right to not be ripped apart while still alive or have your brain suctioned out, THOSE are valid rights! The “right” to myrder your child because you “aren’t ready” is absolutely disgusting, barbaric and self centered as it can get! 

  • Disgusting. Let’s all eat tacos for murdering rights. Gimme a break.

  • I’m just gonna say it. This is gross. Is that an actual photo from the campaign. This needs a serious rethinking.

    1. To all who support this, remember,YOU were not murdered in you mothers’ womb by the abotion industry.  You were given the chance to live.

    • Yes, but I was also born into a loving family, to two parents who could totally afford to take care of me.

      • So, it’s OK to murder a baby because you can’t afford it?

    • Abortion is killing.  How can anyone kill a baby?

  • disgusting and selfish…ALS is a disease, not something desired out of convenience

  • This is an amazing and brilliant idea. I’m in and I don’t even dig beer or tacos. Going to Taco Time right now for lunch.

    • So what do we eat to support the rights of the Human Baby that is MURDERED BY DISMEMBERMENT during abortions?!?I will donate to protect the lives of defenseless babies, NOT to continue to allow them to be slaughtered for the sake of convenience!
