Actress Mila Kunis has revealed how she subtly trolls US Vice President Mike Pence on a monthly basis over his policies on limiting women’s reproductive rights.

Speaking on US talk show Conan, the star revealed how she had set up a monthly donation to reproductive healthcare charity Planned Parenthood in his name.

The Republican former governor is well-known for his anti-abortion views and has previously vowed to consign the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe vs Wade, which legalised abortion in all 50 states, to the “ash heap of history, where it belongs”.

He also tried to end state funding for sexual health clinics and passed restrictive laws on abortion while governor of Indiana.

Most notoriously he signed a bill in March 2016 which would have forced women in the state to hold funerals for their aborted foetuses. The legislation was later struck down by a federal judge.

But speaking to host Conan O’Brien, the “Bad Moms” star said: “I disagreed with some of the stuff that Pence was doing and was trying to do”.

So in order to remind him that “there are women out there in the world that may or may not agree with his platform” she set up the donation.

She was not alone. In the days following Donald Trump’s shock victory last November Planned Parenthood reported a spike in the number of donations made in the Vice President’s name.

They said they received $25,000 (£19,000) in 20,000 different donations within 10 days of the result.
