‘Mike Pence’ Donations Surge For Planned Parenthood In Protest Against Vice President Elect

As Governor of Indiana, Pence signed one of the strictest abortion laws in the country.

It banned abortion even in cases where the foetus has a “genetic abnormality” such as Down syndrome. Doctors are legally liable if they had knowingly performed such a procedure. The Supreme Court stopped the law going into effect.

This has left abortion rights advocates as fearful of Pence as they are of President-Elect Donald Trump, who infamously said women who underwent illegal abortions should be punished as well as the doctor.

Donating to Planned Parenthood have surged in recent days, with donors giving Pence’s details, saying the donation is a gift in his honour.

This means Pence’s office will receive a certificate giving him the good news that the organisation he opposes has been given money.

Katy Perry gave the organisation $10,000 after the election result last week.

Comedian Amy Schumer and actresses Jaime King and Ashley Hinshaw were among those posting photos of Instagram of how to make donations in Pence’s name.
