Pro-choice groups took to Twitter this month to solicit donations in Vice President Mike Pence’s name. The organizations characterized the effort as a “protest” of the vice president’s pro-life views.
Shortly after last year’s presidential election, Planned Parenthood supporters launched a social media campaign urging people to donate to the organization in Pence’s name.
Earlier this year, actress Mila Kunis said on “Conan” that she was one of those supporters and set up a monthly donation to Planned Parenthood in Pence’s name as a “peaceful protest.” Pence later sought donations for the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List in response.
Planned Parenthood renewed its call for donations in Pence’s name shortly before Christmas, writing in a tweet that supporters could “make it a holiday season Mike Pence will never forget.”

NARAL Pro-Choice America echoed the call on Friday, asking for contributions in Pence’s “honor.”

On its donation page, NARAL wrote it would notify “the viciously anti-choice vice president” of each contribution.
“Take a stand against Mike Pence and his extremist anti-choice views,” the organization said.
