How to Fight Back. First Tip: Give Mike Pence a Christmas Present

This will be a series of posts, I hope, including one about the best ways to intervene to stop street harassment of those who have been declared prey in this world where the Alt Right guys think Trump has given them a hunting license.

I'm beginning with something easy and safe:  Donate to Planned Parenthood.

Many poor women have no other source for gynecological care.

Better still, give your donation in the name of Mike Pence:

He staunchly opposes abortion rights and in 2011 led the charge to defund Planned Parenthood as a member of the House of Representatives, an effort that ultimately failed but nearly forced the federal government to shut down. As governor, he signed one of the nation’s most stringent abortion laws, which mandated that miscarried or stillborn fetuses be buried or cremated and that women have an ultrasound at least 18 hours before a scheduled abortion. It also barred abortions of fetuses with disabilities or because of their race, sex or ancestry.
