Thanks to the internet, Mike Pence is one of Planned Parenthood’s biggest donors

When Donald Trump assumes the presidency in January, he brings with him Indiana governor Mike Pence, a dyed-in-the-wool conservative whose record on reproductive rights—not to mention his support for so-called “conversion therapy”—has a lot of people legitimately spooked. But, as reported by New York, some of those concerned citizens have found an elegant coping strategy: They’re donating to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name.

Since the election, Planned Parenthood has received over 72,000 donations on Pence’s behalf. That accounts for a whopping 28 percent of total contributions. Though Pence is a sworn and outspoken enemy of Planned Parenthood, he has now become the organization’s major benefactor. There’s sweet, sweet irony in the fact that Pence will be receiving thank-you notes from Planned Parenthood for all his support.

For those who wish to follow this example, donations to Planned Parenthood can be made right here.
