Since Sept. 1, Ocasio-Cortez’s email and social media campaigns highlighting the issue have brought in $300,000 in donations for organizations “providing much needed resources to folks seeking abortion care in Texas,” her campaign team announced in a press release Friday.

The release said fundraising had “spiked” after Sarah Palin’s Fox News interview, in which Palin slammed Ocasio-Cortez for referring to women as “menstruating” people.

Ocasio-Cortez had tweeted Wednesday: “The gutting of Roe v Wade imperils every menstruating person in the US, every person who engages in sex, and every person who values our constitutional right to privacy. Just one reason Roe isn’t a “women’s issue” beyond the fact that people who aren’t women can menstruate too!”

Palin ripped the self-described democratic socialist as a “fake feminist” over the comment.

“She’s milking the whole female thing, and as a real feminist, I’m embarrassed for her,” Palin said Wednesday.

Ocasio-Cortez responded to Palin with a video Thursday sarcastically advising the former Alaska governor to call the hotline “1-800-CRY-NOW.” The congresswoman later announced she set up a website of the same name that acts as a donation page to abortion providers.

Ocasio-Cortez’s team said donations poured in from 4,000 individuals and will be allocated to multiple abortion rights groups, including Texas Equal Access Fund and Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, Inc.
