“Sugar Daddy” website SeekingArrangement is a website aimed at giving women a platform from which they can do anything with their bodies that they wish. And when the state of Alabama took the freedom to do so from women, the founder naturally had issues with it.
Recently, Alabama enacted a ban on nearly all abortions. This leaves many desperate women without options if they find themselves pregnant and in the difficult situation of not being in a position to keep a baby once born.
“If lawmakers will not step in and help these desperate women, then I will,” founder and CEO Brandon Wade said in a video the website uploaded to YouTube on June 4.
“When any state makes the decision to deny women the right to make choices about her body, we can help,” he says. “We will provide women and families who cannot afford to provide for themselves, travel out of their home state to access proper health care and to exercise their right to a choice.”
“My girlfriend, Zoe, and her sister Camille, both from Gadsden, Alabama, wept that day,” he added, “As did millions of other women worldwide.”
Wade’s business organized a charity called Fight Against Poverty, which will pay for the travel expenses of women in Alabama and other states with similarly draconian bans if they want to go elsewhere to have the procedure done.
What’s more, Wade will cover the cost of the abortions themselves.
Say what you will about “Sugar Daddy” websites, but Wade has shown they are far more committed to treating women like humans than Republican lawmakers ever will be.
