The abortion chain Planned Parenthood has become one of the popular celebrity causes of the day.
Last week, actress Mila Kunis told Conan O’Brien why she got on board with the latest trend. Known for her role in “That 70s Show” and as the wife of Ashton Kutcher, she and her husband also have been big supporters of pro-abortion candidates like Hillary Clinton, Celebrity Insider reports.
Kunis said her monthly donations to Planned Parenthood are a sort-of prank on Vice President Mike Pence. She said she donates monthly in the pro-life leader’s name.
“I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do,” Kunis told O’Brien last week. “And so, as a reminder that there are women in the world that may or may not agree with his platform, I put him on a list of reoccurring donations that are made in his name to Planned Parenthood.”
“Every month, to his office, he gets a little letter that says ‘an anonymous donation has been made in your name.’ I do not look at it as a prank; I look at it just as, I strongly disagree [with him], and this is my little way of showing it,” she continued.
Her idea hardly is unique. Late last year, abortion activists urged people to donate to Planned Parenthood in the name of the pro-life vice president as a means of protesting his support for unborn babies’ right to life.
The campaign began on social media about a week after the election, and a number of pro-abortion celebrities, including Amy Schumer and Amber Tamblyn, also participated.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the U.S., performing about 320,000 abortions a year. It currently receives about half a billion taxpayer dollars every year, despite numerous scandals involving potentially illegal sales of aborted babies’ body parts, Medicaid fraud and failures to report sexual abuse of minors.
Pence has been a long-time champion for the rights of unborn babies. He worked to defund the abortion chain Planned Parenthood when he was a U.S. Congressman and governor of Indiana.
In 2016, Pence signed an Indiana law to ban abortions based solely on an unborn baby’s disability, sex or race. As governor of Indiana, he also supported life-affirming pregnancy and parenting resources for women and babies.
Last January, Pence was the first vice president ever to address the March for Life.
“We’re in the promise-keeping business. That’s why … the president reinstated the Mexico City Policy,” Pence said during the march. “This administration will work to end taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers.”
“Life is winning again in America!” he declared.
The Blaze reports some individuals responded to Kunis by making donations to pro-life groups such as the National Right to Life Committee and the Susan B. Anthony List.
