A pro-life organization that has spent decades working to try to get corporations to stop giving financial donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion business has released a revised listing of companies backing the abortion giant.
Life Decisions International has released a revised edition of The Boycott List, which identifies corporations that support Planned Parenthood, which does more abortions than any other business in the nation. The organziation tells LifeNews.com that more than 334 corporations have agreed to stop funding Planned Parenthood in the decades that it has been working to divorce corporate America from the abortion industry.
LDI makes a full list available to pro-life people who ask for it, but here is sample of the companies that currently support Planned Parenthood and how you can contact those businesses to make your voice heard.
