The left can’t stand Vice President-elect Mike Pence because of his conservatism – particularly his pro-life stance. In response to his and Donald Trump’s presidential victory, some on the left have called for people to contribute to Planned Parenthood via donations in Pence’s name.
Artist Bethany Cosentino posted a screenshot about the donation stunt, the Huffington Post gleefully reported.
Actress Amber Tamblyn re-posted the call for donations and commented: “I’m doing it. You? And if you’re here to comment and tell us to get over it. I’ll block you. You are NOT. WELCOME. HERE.”
Comedian Amy Schumer, who said she would flee the country if Trump was elected but then whined that she was just joking, re-posted the screenshot and said, “Done and done.”
Some Twitter users posted screenshots of their donations, evidencing their bigotry and lack of self-awareness:

According to these people, contributing to abortion and seeing it as the murder of innocent babies and whose faith has guided his beliefs is something to be proud of. It isn’t.
