Bank of America Caught Donating $50,000 to Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

A watchdog group that monitors corporate donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion company has caught Bank of America making donations to the nation’s biggest abortion business.

The organization 2nd Vote tells LifeNews that Bank of America donated $50,000 to the Planned Parenthood abortion company in 2017. And the organization plans to raise concerns about the new nations at Bank of America’s upcoming shareholders meeting.

According to the most recent available IRS Form 990 filing, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation distributed over $50,000 to Planned Parenthood organizations in 2017. Given Planned Parenthood’s own estimates, that would be enough to pay for 50 to 140 abortion procedures.

“Bank of America continues to direct tens of thousands of dollars into Planned Parenthood’s abortion business,” said 2ndVote Executive Director Robert Kuykendall. “We want investors and customers to understand that their dollars are being used to support an organization that exists primarily to end innocent lives.”

“As we saw earlier this year in New York and Virginia, the abortion lobby is engaged in a nationwide effort to end all limitations on abortion,” continued Kuykendall. “By continuing to fund Planned Parenthood, Bank of America is endorsing a radical agenda and financing the killing of infants up to the moment of birth.”

The call for Bank of America to end financial support for Planned Parenthood coincides with the company’s annual shareholders meeting that will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on April 24, 2019.

“Information is powerful,” said Kuykendall. “Bank of America’s leadership needs to hear from customers, investors, and all who value life that support for Planned Parenthood is support for infanticide. Those who value life don’t want to see their banking dollars funding an organization that ends over 300,000 lives every year.”

This isn’t the first time bank of America has come under fire from pro-life advocates for donations to the Planned Parethood abortion biz.


In 2016, the group Pro-Life Waco staged protests asking the bank to end its employee matching grant program with the abortion business. According to the group: “Pro-Life Waco is leading a campaign to convince national management of Bank of America to completely terminate its financial support for Planned Parenthood. Bank of America includes Planned Parenthood in its 100% match to employees donations.”

In addition to Planned Parenthood, a quick look at past Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. 990’s shows that they also contributed to the abortion giant’s former research arm, the Guttmacher Institute. The documents show about $2,500 in donations to Planned Parenthood and $615 to the pro-abortion research group.

Kuykendall asks pro-life people to take action:

“Despite appalling efforts led by Planned Parenthood to legalize abortion up until the moment of birth in states like New York, Bank of America continues to stand by its contributions,” he told LifeNews. “We need your help showing Bank of America that corporate support for Planned Parenthood’s abortion agenda is unacceptable.”
