American Express, AT&T, Avon, Bank of America, Bath and Body Works and Ben & Jerry’s. What do these corporations have in common? They all directly send corporate contributions to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.
Of Planned Parenthood’s $1.3 Billion in yearly revenue, over 25% comes from private donations, including corporate contributions. How can pro-life people keep track of which corporations send part of the money they get from your purchases to fund the abortion industry?
A fairly new group called 2nd Vote helps give you an idea. 2nd Vote has compiled this reference list of companies that have directly or indirectly supported Planned Parenthood so that you as a consumer can know if your dollars are funding an agenda that violates your Pro-Life values.
“2nd Vote is showing conservative consumers how companies use their hard earned dollars to fund Planned Parenthood’s liberal agenda,” outreach director Jake DeVantier tell LifeNews.com. “It doesn’t make sense to vote for pro-life values on Election Day and then help fund the nation’s largest abortion provider with our spending.”
The group helps pro-life advocates keep track with a handy app that Apple and Droid users can download on their smartphones (fortunately, neither Google nor Apple make the list of Planned Parenthood-funding corporations). The list includes companies like Johnson and Johnson, Levi Strauss, Liberty Mutual and Macy’s.
“Our smartphone app gives users the ability to know whether or not their shopping habits are in line with their pro-life values,” DeVantier says.
He tells LifeNews that pro-life people, once they download the 2nd Vote app, should check back regularly because the list of companies is updated frequently.
“We encourage you to reach out to these companies; let them know why you spend your dollars elsewhere. By working together and voting with our dollars, we can turn the tables on this national tragedy,” he says. “We want our members to use the resources we provide to hold companies accountable for their involvement with pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood.”
So check out of the free 2nd Vote app today and keep abreast of the latest list of companies backing Planned Parenthood. Then you’ll know to avoid Coca-Cola, Converse, Dockers, ExxonMobil, Ford, Groupon and many more.
