AbortionBlackout leverages web-based social technologies, new media strategies and guerilla marketing to educate the public about the truth of abortion and alternatives to it. AbortionBlackout collects donations electronically to promote wearing black on Fridays in protest of abortion and distributes a large percentage of donations directly to Crisis Pregnancy Centers across the US that do not support abortion.
