Toys-R-Us Deserves to Close Because It Donated to Planned Parenthood

The failing toy chain recently revealed that it is going out of business after it filed for bankruptcy last fall.

Daily Wire writer Paul Bois said the business deserves a “humiliating end.” After all, it did promote the group that is aborting more of its customers than any other group in the U.S., Planned Parenthood.

Though Bois expressed sympathy for the employees who will lose their jobs, he said the business has itself to blame for its failure.

“I shed not one tear for them, and neither should you: For the past decade, the organization has joined the ranks alongside Target, Starbucks, and every megastore chain in the conquest of progressive social engineering,” he wrote.

The Life Decisions International boycott list, which identifies businesses and organizations that donate to abortion groups, included Toys R Us. At the end of 2010, the pro-life group removed the toy business from the list after it agreed to stop donating to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. However, the toy business continued to indirectly support Planned Parenthood through 2017, as the watchdog group 2nd Vote noted.

“Toys-R-Us matches gifts to Susan G. Komen NYC and MN chapters, which continues to fund Planned Parenthood,” according to the report.

The toy chain has fewer customers than ever, resulting from declining birth rates, Bois noted. And while abortion rates also have dropped, Planned Parenthood’s share of the abortion market has increased.

“That the company donated to [Planned Parenthood] while pushing family-friendly labels like Babies R Us makes their actions all the more egregious and all the more deserving of failure,” Bois wrote.

Any business that donates to the abortion giant is not only hurting itself but also the most vulnerable, at-risk human beings in the world, babies in the womb.
