Planned Parenthood touts 20,000 donations ‘in honor of’ VP-elect Mike Pence
Twenty thousand of them have been "in honor of" Vice President-elect Mike Pence.
Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards boasted that the abortion mega-business has received an "unprecedented outpouring of support."
"The majority of Americans, including Trump's own voters, support access to healthcare at Planned Parenthood and do not want to see women lose access to safe, legal abortion,” she said.
The abortion business allows donors to give “in honor or in memory of someone special,” so many pro-abortion women are filling in Pence's name under “Honoree Information.”
Pence-dedicated contributions began late Friday night, when Bustle writer Gabrielle Moss tweeted a screenshot of her donation, including its "in memory of" section, and the idea caught on.
Celebrities Amy Schumer and Amber Rose Tamblyn tweeted their abortion donations on social media, with Tamblyn also giving Pence's governor's address, falsely telling followers that if they do the same, Pence will personally get a certificate of the donation.
Most of the donations are small. Planned Parenthood gave out the total number of donations, but not the total dollar amount from those donations.
Pence is a known enemy to the abortion industry. As an Indiana Republican Congressman, Pence led the effort to defund Planned Parenthood in response to the release of the Center for Medical Progress undercover videos revealing the abortion conglomerate illegally trafficking in human baby parts for profit.
Rep. Pence co-sponsored the "Life at Conception Act," which "declares that the right to life guaranteed by the Constitution is vested in each human being," including the "preborn human person." The "Life at Conception Act" would empower Congress to ban abortion nationwide but not to punish post-abortive women.
As Indiana governor, Pence championed pro-life legislation that made it illegal to abort on the basis of sex, race, nationality, or disability — including Down syndrome. He also fought for better health and safety standards for abortion facilities, and for women's informed consent laws.
Gov. Pence promoted life by providing $1,000 adoption credit for parents, and championed life-affirming and compassionate care to tens of thousands of Indiana women through pregnancy and as they begin parenting. He also promoted umbilical cord donation as the alternative to destructive embryonic stem cell experimentation.
Gov. Pence successfully passed and signed bills requiring the respectful burial or cremation of aborted babies and stopping Planned Parenthood's contracted practice of treating those babies as medical waste or using them for experimentation.
His pro-life measures were not without persecution. After signing the bill for respectful burial of aborted babies, pro-abortionists began mocking him, distracting personnel and depleting resources in his office by calling and emailing the governor with explicit information about their monthly menstrual periods.
Undaunted, Gov. Pence continued to lead Indiana away from the culture of death, and as a direct result, four Indiana abortuaries closed and the Indiana abortion rate continued to decline.
