Actress Mila Kunis revealed this week that she has been donating to Planned Parenthood each month in Vice President Mike Pence's name. She explained why she has been doing so during an appearance on "Conan."
What did Kunis say?
Kunis explained to host Conan O’Brien that the recurring donation isn't a prank, but simply a reminder that "there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform."
"Every month to his office, he gets a little letter that says like, ‘an anonymous donation has been made in your name,'” she added, noting it's her way of peacefully protesting the Trump administration.
How did people react?
For liberal women like Kunis, being pro-abortion under the guise of supporting "women's access to health care" is a big thing. So anytime conservatives or Republicans suggest stripping Planned Parenthood of its federal funding, they blow up.
But many pointed out that Kunis proves exactly what her peers say can't happen: that Planned Parenthood can be completely funded without taxpayer dollars. The organization currently receives more than a half billion taxpayer funds each year.
In fact, many said Kunis made the case for exactly why Planned Parenthood should be stripped of its federal funds:

Meanwhile, others suggested people start donating to the National Rifle Association in Kunis' name:
Maybe we need to start donating to the NRA in her name.— Martin (@nuclearman515) November 3, 2017
Can anyone say, "backfire?"
