Mila Kunis Doesn't Just Troll Mike Pence. She Pays It Forward.

"I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it."

Seeing as how millions of people disagree with the current administration's policies, specifically as they relate to women's health and a women's right to choose, many have found small but impactful ways to fight back and stand up for what they believe in.

For example, during a November 2 appearance on Conan, actress Mila Kunis revealed she has set up monthly donations to Planned Parenthood in Vice President Mike Pence's name. "I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do, so as a reminder that there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of recurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood," she said.

After some applause from the audience Kunis explained that, because of her donation in his name, Pence gets monthly letters sent to his office from the organization thanking him for his support. "I don't look at it as a prank," Kunis said. "I strongly disagree, and this is my little way of showing it."

And the Bad Moms star is hardly alone. According to a December 2016 article in The Cut, Planned Parenthood has received more than 315,000 donations since the 2016 election — and more than 82,000 of those were made in Pence's name.

As The Hill pointed out, Republicans have long opposed federal money funding Planned Parenthood primarily because it is the country's largest abortion provider. However, though the national organization receives federal reimbursements for providing women's health services, it is not reimbursed for abortions.

Since Pence is vehemently anti-abortion and cast a tie-breaking vote in the Senate to move forward with an effort to nix an Obama-era rule that blocked states from defunding health-care providers for political reasons back in March, he's become a focus for those looking to help Planned Parenthood. 

Other ways people have shown support for Planned Parenthood in recent months include making outfits out of the organization's branded stickers and condoms in an effort to raise awareness about the healthcare services the organization provides, and donating money previously earmarked for other causes like the cast of Mom did with their Emmy campaign funds.
