Planned Parenthood enthusiasts have been donating to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name since Donald Trump won the presidential election. We touched on this in one of our podcasts (click here to listen/watch) and one of our blogs (click here to read).
You see, every time a donation to Planned Parenthood is made in his name, Mike Pence receives an acknowledgment of it. It’s an inconsiderate and immature way of showing disapproval of Mike Pence’s pro-life convictions. Maybe those donating think it is funny, or maybe they are just mean-spirited, but this mush is for sure, nobody will directly benefit from their efforts save Planned Parenthood as it continues to fill its coffers.
The donations continue, and as of this week, 82,000 donors have sent money to Planned Parenthood in honor of Mike Pence (see here). What does that mean for Planned Parenthood’s coffers? Let’s imagine the average donation in Mike Pence’s name has been $25. That would be 2,050,000 (basically 2 million dollars) given to Planned Parenthood in only a little over a month. That is quite a bit of money to make in just about 6 weeks for doing nothing.
If these donations continued throughout the year at this rate, then Planned Parenthood would rake in 24 million dollars…on donations alone!
All these donations in Mike Pence’s name prove one thing for sure, namely, that Planned Parenthood is more than capable of continuing with its cold-hearted killing without taxpayer money.
