On the heels of a shocking video showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling the body parts of aborted babies, a new expose’ from a group that monitors corporations that finance the abortion giant reveals the United Way is a major donor.
The consumer advocacy organization 2nd Vote has informed LifeNews.com of the release of the Pro-Life Guide to United Way, a new guide that lists the over 1,200 United Way affiliates across the United States and specifies the organizations that contribute to the world’s largest abortion company.
“United Way has done many good things through fundraising efforts and partnerships that help communities across the country,” said 2nd Vote spokesman Robert Kuykendall. “However, the fact that United Way affiliates give almost $2 million annually to Planned Parenthood is concerning for Pro-Lifers that would want to support these good causes but also want to make sure that their dollars do not help fund abortion services.”
Although the United Way’s website contains language claiming a neutral stance by the organization on the abortion issue, Kuykendall tells LifeNews that some United Way affiliates donate to the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation anyway.
“According to United Way, only 5% of its affiliates contribute in any way to Planned Parenthood,” Kuykendall said.
How can pro-life advocates find out if their local United Way agency donates to the abortion giant? The group tells LifeNews that its handy guide makes it easy to figure out which ones partner with Planned Parenthood. The ‘Pro-Life Guide to United Way’ was released on 2nd Vote’s website and contains a state-by-state list of every United Way in the United States. Each entry shows the amount of money donated to Planned Parenthood by that affiliate with a link to tax forms documenting the expenditure.
“2nd Vote’s goal is to provide Pro-Life donors a resource that will help them avoid donating money that would eventually help fund the world’s largest abortion provider,” he said.
“Every dollar that Planned Parenthood receives helps promote the abortion agenda. 2nd Vote is dedicated to showing conservatives where their dollars actually go and giving them the resources to align their spending and charitable contributions with their values,” said Kuykendall.
The release of the Pro-Life Guide to United Way follows similar resource guides compiled from 2nd Vote’s research that investigated corporate contributions to Planned Parenthood. American Express, AT&T, Avon, Bank of America, Bath and Body Works and Ben & Jerry’s are some of the companies the organization found to be supporting Planned Parenthood.
The guide also includes companies like Johnson and Johnson, Levi Strauss, Liberty Mutual and Macy’s. Coca-Cola, Converse, Dockers, ExxonMobil, Ford, Groupon and many more corporations appear on the list as well.
