In Pence's name, 72K abortion activists donate to PP

Mike Pence mic gesturingTo spite President-elect Donald Trump’s overtly pro-life running mate, Mike Pence, some 72,000 abortion activists donated to Planned Parenthood in the vice-president elect’s name.

In reaction to the extreme pro-abortion Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, losing the presidency in November’s election, hundreds of thousands of donations were made to the world’s largest abortion provider -- out of fear that it will be defunded after Trump takes over the Oval Office.

In addition to its report about the 72,000 wrongly attributed donations, , CBC News reported that nearly 1,300 contributions were made in Pence’s name in his home state of Indiana – to Planned Parenthood’s affiliate there.

The popularity of the anti-Pence campaign soared when abortion extremists and Hollywood rallied behind the scandal-plagued abortion business.

“Abortion activists have been mocking Pence’s strong pro-life record by donating in his name to the abortion giant,” Life News reported. “The campaign began on social media about a week after the election, and a number of pro-abortion celebrities – including Amy Schumer and Amber Tamblyn – have participated.”

Taking in all they can get

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, who takes in about $1 million a year in salary, expressed that she is “so grateful” for the surge in donations following the loss of her sponsored candidate, Clinton – who vowed to fight for the continued federal funding of the abortion provider.

“We’ve stood defiant in the face of opposition for the last 100 years,” Richards declared in a statement. “We will never back down, and we will never stop providing the care our patients need.”

Even though Planned Parenthood had the unwavering support of President Barack Obama over the past eight years, Richards’ lucrative business that performs approximately 320,000 abortions per year has been beleaguered by scandal after scandal in recent years.

“It currently receives about half a billion taxpayer dollars every year, despite numerous scandals involving potentially illegal sales of aborted babies’ body parts, Medicaid fraud and failures to report sexual abuse of minors,” Life News’ Micaiah Bilger informed. “The tax money Planned Parenthood receives is not supposed to be used for abortions, but evidence indicates that some of its abortion facilities are.”

After Trump and other pro-life Republicans scored huge gains in last month’s election, enormous losses were sustained by the world’s largest abortion provider – and the Democrats who support it.

“The abortion group spent approximately $30 million to elect pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton and other pro-abortion politicians to Congress, but lost many of the races,” Bilger continued. ”The abortion group’s losses are gains for unborn babies and their families. Pro-life leaders are hopeful that the incoming president and Congress will enact new protections for unborn babies and defund Planned Parenthood.”

Pro-life through and through

Recognizing that Pence has a stellar track record of standing up for the sanctity of human life over the years while serving in public office, Planned Parenthood is worried that it will no longer enjoy the support and protection it has received from Obama when the incoming Trump administration takes over in January.

“While Trump is a recent convert to the pro-life cause, Pence has been a long-time champion for the rights of unborn babies,” Bilger explained. “He also worked to defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood when he was a U.S. Congressman.”

And his pro-life advocacy is by no means a thing of the past.

“Earlier this year, Pence signed into law an Indiana bill to ban abortions based solely on an unborn baby’s disability, sex or race,” the pro-life journalist added. “As governor of Indiana, he also supported life-affirming pregnancy and parenting resources for women and babies.”

Vowing that he would not sit back and watch taxpayers’ money pay for procedures that go against their sincerely held religious beliefs, Pence promised students at Liberty University earlier this fall that he and Trump would do all they could to make sure that Planned Parenthood will no longer receive hundreds of thousands in federal funding to kill hundreds of thousands of America’s children.

“… Donald Trump and I believe that the largest abortion provider in America should not be the largest recipient of federal funding under Title 10,” Pence assured an attentive campus crowd in Lynchburg, Virginia. “A Trump-Pence administration will defund Planned Parenthood and redirect those dollars to women’s healthcare that doesn’t provide abortion services.”
