Stormy Daniels Plans To Donate $130K In Hush Money To Planned Parenthood

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels has become a household name after her alleged 2006 affair with President Donald Trump became public. While she’s reached mainstream notoriety, she isn’t forgetting her past.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, will appear on the cover of the May/June issue of Penthouse magazine which also features an in-depth interview and photo shoot with the former Penthouse Pet.

In the interview, Daniels reveals that if she wins her current lawsuit against Trump and his lawyer, Michael Cohen, she will donate $130,000 to Planned Parenthood in their names. 

Daniels’ lawsuit against Trump and Cohen is a motion to have the “hush money” deal declared invalid so she can speak publicly about the affair. Cohen is also believed to be under investigation by the FBI for potential violations surrounding the payment. 

The donation would be an affront to Trump, whose administration has threatened to defund Planned Parenthood. Although his administration didn’t cut any funding for the women’s health organization in its 2018 budget, it has taken steps to hurt the organization.

Trump signed legislation in 2017 that nullified an Obama-era rule that effectively barred state and local governments from withholding federal dollars for family planning services. Earlier this year, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials issued a new regulation that protects the rights of healthcare workers from providing abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization services if they violate the worker’s religious beliefs or conscience.
