As the state bans on abortion in Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio, Utah, Missouri, and Mississippi get struck down one by one because they’re unconstitutional and harmful to women’s health, one cosmetics company is doing their part to help out.

Lipslut, maker of “F*ck Trump” lipstick, is donating 100 percent of their profit from the lipstick line for any customer that chooses the Keep Abortion Safe charity. Each purchase made on the website allows customers to choose a charity issue they care about and donates 50 percent of their profits to that issue, but the company is determined to step up their efforts during this fight.
L.A. Magazine reports that:
‘Lipslut, an L.A.-based cosmetics startup, has never made a secret of their political leanings. From their launch last year, the company has donated half of its proceeds to progressive organizations. This week, the brand is stepping things up even further, donating 100 percent of earnings to organizations that campaign for the protection of reproductive rights.’
BREAKING: Federal judge blocks Mississippi's law that bans most abortions once fetal heartbeat is detected:
“By banning abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, [the law] prevents a woman’s free choice, which is central to personal dignity and autonomy," judge writes.

The lipstick brand offers a vegan, cruelty-free product in shades like Notorious RBG, F*ck Kavanaugh, and Leftylibsglobalistantifacommiesocialisthollyweirdopigs. The company has made their position of the issues known since their inception.
‘Typically, each color in the range is linked to a certain charity partner, but through May 24, the entire line will be eligible for the “Keep Abortion Safe” fundraiser. That means you can select from options including Notorious R.B.G (bright berry), F*ck Kavanaugh(deep red), or the classic, F*ck Trump (medium pink).’
Missouri’s new abortion ban is unconstitutional and will hurt women. We need to #StopTheBans by passing federal laws that ensure real access to birth control and abortion care for all women. https://t.co/tTL6E6xMAK

This issue has brought together numerous activist groups to tackle the onslaught of attempts to regulate women’s bodies. Katie Sones, the founder of Lipslut, said that:
‘Needless to say, as a young woman, these bans hit close to home. Women have a right to control their own bodies. It scares me that people want to change that.’
1 in 4 women will have an abortion before age 45—and they didn’t get pregnant on their own. We need #MenForChoice to step up. Reproductive freedom affects ALL of us, not just women. https://t.co/wwrsEbQTUu
