Liberal Hollywood actors and comedians, including Sarah Silverman and Zach Galifianakis, have joined together to raise funds for groups that help pregnant, financially-strapped Texas women get abortions.
The performers raised about $20,000 Sunday during "A Night of a Thousand Vaginas," a benefit for the Texas Abortion Fund
, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Silverman, the tart-tongued comic, took the stage wearing a T-shirt that read: "I stand with Texas women."
"Our rights are being chipped away at," she told the audience.
The event was organized by actresses Martha Plimpton and Sarah Thyre, and the proceeds raised from ticket sales went to the Lone Star State’s Whole Women’s Health Fund, Lilith Fund, Fund Texas Women, and TEA Fund, according to the Reporter.
