1. You’re probably more than aware that last week, Donald Trump won the US presidential election, which means that Mike Pence will become vice president once Trump is inaugurated in January.
3. Trump has said he will ban abortion after 20 weeks, only nominate anti-choice justices to the Supreme Court, is refusing to fund Planned Parenthood, and said that there should be “some sort of punishment” for women seeking abortion if it was outlawed. He’s also said he will repeal Obamacare, which gives women access to contraception.
It should also be noted that Planned Parenthood provides services other than abortion, relating to sexual health and contraception.
5. Unsurprisingly, many people have expressed anger that two men will deny women autonomy over their own bodies.
6. And now celebrities are decrying Trump and Pence’s stance on women’s reproductive rights. Over the weekend Katy Perry publicly donated $10,000 to Planned Parenthood.
She said: “I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing. I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them.”
