Women’s health resources like Planned Parenthood, even before our President been elected was clear the would be in danger especially with Vice President Mike Pence, who staunchly opposed abortion rights and filed legislation while serving in Congress to bar funding to the organization.
However, Planned Parenthood does more than offer abortion services; it also offers STD screenings, vaccines, birth control, and even general health care. And after Trump was elected, the organization received an influx of donations from people who wanted to keep it alive. Actress Mila Kunis was one of them. She is receiving quite a bit of backlash after revealing that she makes donations to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name. Very disrespectable and rude, right?
But Mike Pence is giving a response back and took to Twitter over the weekend to seek donations for the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List. Let’s all donate to pro-life groups in Mila’s name!
According to The Blaze:
What did Susan B. Anthony List say?
In response to Kunis’ remarks, the Susan B. Anthony List set up a donation page on their website allowing supporters to make a donation to the group in Pence’s name.
Let’s take a stand for life,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, wrote on Twitter.

“I’m in,” he added.
Earlier this year, Pence delivered the keynote address at the Susan B. Anthony List’s annual Campaign for Life Gala. He praised the pro-life feminism of the group and its namesake.
“Today, tomorrow, and every day hence let us strive with all our might to finish the work that Susan B. Anthony started, to ensure that the timeless promises of the Declaration of Independence — of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness — ring true and are preserved not only for ourselves, but our posterity,” Pence said in May.
