This Christmas season, countless people will be purchasing items for their loved ones. With so much money being spent, it is important to know what the companies you purchase from do with your money.
That’s why the pro-life group Life Decisions International has compiled another updated list of companies that donate to the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The group has been successful in getting pro-life Americans to boycott companies that back the nation’s leading abortion company and getting corporations to end the relationship.
“As a direct result of the commitment, action and prayers of pro-family people, at least 366 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood,” said LDI Board Chairman Thomas C. Strobhar
He told LifeNews.com that LDI estimates the boycott has cost Planned Parenthood more than $21.5 million since it began releasing lists of companies to boycott.
“This should serve as a testament to those who think it impossible to change corporate behavior,” he said.
New boycott targets include AutoZone, BP, Canadian Imperial Bank, GoFundMe, Lionsgate Entertainment, McKesson (Health Mart, Sunmark, Rexall Pharmacy), Office Depot/Office Max, Penske, Quest Diagnostics, SIRVA (Allied, Global, and North American Van Lines), and United Fire (insurance).
Companies on the boycott list that continue funding Planned Parenthood include: Adobe, Ameriprise Financial, Bank of America, Bank of Montreal (BMO), Chanel (cosmetics, fragrances, etc.) Clorox (cleaning products, Brita, Burt’s Bees, Fresh Step, Glad, Hidden Valley, KC Masterpiece, Kingsford charcoal, Kitchen Bouquet, Scoop Away, etc.), Danone (Dannon products), Deutsche Bank, eBay, Estēe Lauder (cosmetics, fragrances, etc.), Expedia (travel planning websites: CarRentals, CheapTickets, Ebookers, Expedia, HomeAway, Hotels, Hotwire, Orbitz, Travelocity, trivago, etc.); Kaiser Permanente, LVMH (cosmetics, eyewear, fragrances, jewelry, luggage, etc.), M&T Bank, Marriott (Courtyard, Delta, Fairfield, Four Points, Renaissance, Residence Inn, Sheraton, SpringHill Suites, St. Regis, TownePlace Suites, Westin, etc.), Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Toronto-Dominion (TD) Bank, and UnitedHealthcare.
LDI also investigates nonprofit organizations to determine whether they either support abortion or have made financial donations to Planned Parenthood. Its “Nonprofits Behaving Badly” section identifies charities associated with Planned Parenthood or other advancement of abortion.
Those nonprofits it warns about include ALS Association, American Cancer Society, Avon Foundation for Women, Boys & Girls Clubs, Camp Fire, Catholic Relief Services, Council of Churches, Eagles Clubs, Easter Seals, Elks Clubs, Girl Guides, Girl Scouts, Girls Inc., Kiwanis Clubs, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Lions Clubs, March of Dimes, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, Red Cross, Red Nose Day, Rotary Clubs, Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Salvation Army, Save the Children, Sierra Club, Susan G. Komen, UNICEF, YMCA, and YWCA.
Strobhar said the ongoing success of the Corporate Funding Project is due to the tenacity of pro-life people who “understand the power of the dollar and are willing to go the extra mile for the sake of preborn children.”
