The founder of a sugar daddy website is offering to pay for out-of-state abortions for women seeking the procedure in states that have passed restrictions.
This comes as increasing numbers of states across America introduce bills that attempt to ban women from having abortions – with legislation to restrict abortion rights having been introduced in 16 states this year.
Brandon Wade, the founder and chief executive of popular sugar daddy website SeekingArrangement, is offering to cover the cost of both abortions and the travel expenses for women needing abortions in states that have introduced restrictions on the procedure.
The abortion ban, which has been branded a “death sentence for women”, would even criminalise performing abortions in cases of rape and incest.
Mr Wade’s interest in setting up a charity started when he began to question why women from states with abortion bans could not just travel elsewhere.
SeekingArrangement connects “sugar babies” to “sugar daddies or mommas” to find “mutually beneficial relationships,” according to its site, and has 10 million members.
This can be as early as six weeks – at which point most women do not yet know they are pregnant. »
