With Donald Trump and Mike Pence heading to the White House, many women are concerned about the future of Planned Parenthood. Now more than ever Americans are coming to terms that abortion rights and other reproductive related services could face a major loss of funding if pro-life supporters get a leg up the next four years. In the wake of the election, pro-choice supporters have decided to take matters into their own hands. Donations to the non-profit organization have skyrocketed since November 9th, including a hefty $10,000 gift from Katy Perry.
Giving has gone viral among men and women on social media. Planned Parenthood has reported receiving over 80,000 donations nationwide.
Thank you so much! We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received. Many people are donating in Clinton or Pence’s name. #WeWontGoBack
