A leading pro-life organization is urging Americans to boycott the retail chain Target because of the company’s pro-abortion agenda.

Target is one of dozens of major companies that now pays for employees to travel to abort their unborn babies in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

This month, Concerned Women for America responded with a new “Toss Target” campaign that encourages pro-lifers to boycott the company and seek out ethical alternatives when they shop, Faithwire reports.

“Target has been on the wrong side of family issues for many years, and it’s time we take our business elsewhere and let their executives and managers know why,” Penny Nance, president and CEO of the organization, told the Washington Examiner.

When anyone shops at Target, the money from their purchases is being used to support killing unborn babies in abortions, the campaign warned.

Nace said Target executives’ decision to fund abortion travel discriminates against employees who choose life for their families. She said it also is a “slap in the face” to the vast majority of Americans who support restrictions on abortion.

“Their incredibly offensive decision to weigh in on the most important moral issues in the United States of our time, literally weighing in on the side of death, is not only wrongheaded and insidious but downright financially foolish,” she told the Washington Examiner.

As part of the “Toss Target” boycott, Concerned Women for America published a list of companies on its website that pro-lifers can support instead of pro-abortion businesses.

The organization also encourages pro-lifers to contact Target executives through its website and urge them to reverse direction and support children and families.

Target is not alone. Major entertainment companies like Walt Disney, Warner Brothers and Netflix and tech giants like Google, Apple and Microsoft also now offer their employees money to travel to abort their unborn babies. The grocery store chains Giant Eagle and Kroger recently said they will begin paying employees’ travel costs for abortions, too.

However, some companies already are facing civil rights complaints for allegedly discriminating against pregnant employees who chose life for their unborn babies.
