Daniel Handler, who writes children’s books under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket (which in turn inspired a hit Jim Carrey film), announced on Twitter Monday that he was giving one million dollars to Planned Parenthood. “
@lisabrowndraws & I are giving 1 million dollars to @PPFA. We’ve been very fortunate, and good fortune should be shared with noble causes,” he said in the tweet.
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America quickly tweeted out thanks to Handler and his wife Lisa Brown for the gift:
Handler’s donation comes as Planned Parenthood faces defunding threats from Republicans in Congress.
Have you ever seen such pride over the idea that the slaughter of untold numbers of innocents will continue, with the leftovers of said slaughter sold for profit?
Handler joins celebrities like Lena Dunham, Kerry Washington, and Elizabeth Banks, who have openly supported Planned Parenthood in recent weeks.
