Why Women Are Donating to Planned Parenthood For Mike Pence

As the Ultimate Payback, Women Are Donating to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence's Name

Immediately following the election of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, a militantly pro-life politician, people began donating to Planned Parenthood. Fearing that Trump and Pence would defund Planned Parenthood, as they have indicated they would, over 80,000 people have donated to the women's health nonprofit since the election.

One person in particular has made several donations to Planned Parenthood, and continues to do so: Mike Pence. As musician Bethany Cosentino, one half of the band Best Coast, explained on Instagram, you can make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence's name and he'll receive a certificate of the donation if you include his office address.

It's a simple but nonetheless cheekily rewarding way to protest Pence's desire to defund Planned Parenthood. Don't worry: for clarity, neither you nor Mike Pence will be eligible for a tax deduction from the gift. Here's how people are celebrating the gift across Twitter.
