On Sunday, January 19, comedian Sarah Silverman and various Hollywood celebrities will join hand-in-hand at L.A's Largo at the Coronet to help raise funds for Texas abortions in an event titled, "A Is For: A Night of a Thousand Vaginas! Benefiting Texas Abortion Fund".
Alongside Sarah Silverman, the event will also feature Zach Galifianakis, Steve Agee, Jen Kirkman, Tiffany Haddish, and musician Josh Homme of the Queens of the Stone Age.
The event comes in retaliation to the recent legislative measure passed in Texas over Summer, which imposed severe restrictions on the state's abortion clinics including ban on 20 week old pregnancies.
The pro-abortion group "A Is For", who orchestrated the event, said in response to the law, "A is For is organizing this emergency benefit to raise money for Texas abortion funds (Lilith Fund, TEA Fund, Whole Women’s Health Action Fund, and Fund Texas Women) who are working to help women affected by this law by providing financial support to help cover procedures, travel, lodging and child care".
The event has since sold out, but tickets ran from $60 to $100.
Sarah Silverman certainly has been no stranger to this type of event. Back in November, she auctioned a used a "vagina napkin" for a similar fundraiser.
