How would you like to stick it to The Man while helping women at the same time? That is exactly what people all over the country are doing, and the way they are doing it is as simple as it is brilliant.

Donald Trump’s running mate and our vice president-elect has been a vocal opponent of Planned Parenthood.  Donald Trump himself has said that women should be punished for having abortions.

As many of us who have used Planned Parenthood at some point in our lives know, it is essential in providing comprehensive health care to women who may otherwise not be able to afford it.

Here’s What You Can Do

Donate to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name.

On Planned Parenthood’s donation page, there is a box you can check to indicate that your donation is in honor of “someone special.” That someone special is Mike Pence, and you can fill in his name and address. When you do, a certificate will be sent to him notifying him of your donation.

Here is Pence’s information:

Mike Pence
Office of the Governor
200 W. Washington St., Rm. 206
Indianapolis, IN 46204

It’s that simple. You don’t have to stop there. Donate to whichever causes you feel passionately about that are threatened by the new administration. It could be your local LGBT advocacy group or organization dedicated to racial justice.

Make your voice heard and help people at the same time. Win/win.

The only loser here is the poor sap who has to sort Mike Pence’s mail.
