I was tempted to put this in the Political Humor subforum but it's true.

Still, it's funny as hell.

Donations to US family planning organisation Planned Parenthood in the name of Vice President-elect Mike Pence have surged.

Donald Trump's running mate, a long-time opponent of Planned Parenthood, will be sent a gift certificate for every donation.

The campaign began in 2011 when as an Indiana congressman he introduced several anti-abortion measures.

They included the first bill to strip the provider of all federal funding.

In March this year, as Indiana governor, Mr Pence signed an anti-abortion bill that is seen as one of the most restrictive in the US, barring abortion in Indiana on the basis of disability, gender or race of the foetus.

Parts of that law were blocked by the courts, but not until after a social media backlash which saw women phoning or tweeting Mr Pence details about their menstrual cycles under the hash tag #periodsforpence.

There had already been a significant rise in gifts to the country's biggest abortion provider in the wake of Mr Trump's election last week.

But then over the weekend, many women went on social media to say they had made a donation in Mike Pence's name.

donations are good, right?

taxpayer funding for the redundant farce is not..[aca already provides poor female healthcare also taxpayer funded]

defund pp,,the 500 million annually can be used in many ways that are far more important..

let the private donations continue and rise...

Gee what a surprise.

Another person who apparently does not understand women.

You do know that not just "prog" women use PP right??
