Pro-Life Group Releases New List of Planned Parenthood Abortion Donors
LifeNews.com ^ | January 10, 2007 | Steven Ertelt

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A pro-life organization that monitors corporations that donate money to Planned Parenthood has released a new list of companies that give money to the nation's largest abortion business. New corporations on the boycott list include jeweler Tiffany & Company and Blackjack Pizza restaurants. Life Decisions International has been monitoring companies for over 15 years and says that at least 137 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood as a result of the pro-life boycotts. That's cost Planned Parenthood an estimated $35 million.

"This should be a testament to those who believe it is impossible to change corporate philanthropic behavior," LDI president Douglas Scott said.

Companies appearing on the boycott list for the first time also include AlphaGraphics, television broadcasting firm Arizona Lotus, BolchalkFReY Marketing, Kara-Line (Wild Carrots apparel), hotel and resort operator Lowe Enterprises, and Scolari's Food & Drug.

Numerous corporations have appeared on the LDI boycott list for years and the group encourages pro-life people to continue to boycott their products and contact their corporate headquarters to let them know why.

Neiman Marcus, software maker Adobe, Wachovia, Golub (which operates Price Chopper supermarkets), Nike, Time Warner, Unilever, Bank of America, the Dallas Cowboys, CIGNA, Walt Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Wells Fargo, Whole Foods Market, and Nationwide insurance are some of the large companies that have supported the abortion business.

The new boycott list also includes the names of charitable groups that have developed relationships with Planned Parenthood and LDI asks pro-life people to disassociate themselves with them.

These groups include the American Cancer Society, Camp Fire girls, The Dr. Phil Foundation, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts, Human Rights Watch, Kiwanis Clubs, the March of Dimes, Rotary Clubs, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the YWCA.

"We ask all people who care about life to visit this page to learn which businesses in their area are supporting Planned Parenthood," Scott said. "We urge picketing, letter-writing, and personal visits to these establishments. It is important for pro-family people to let these entrepreneurs know how they feel."

"The Pro-Life Movement will succeed only to the extent that pro-life people are willing to be inconvenienced," Scott said. "The very lives of children are worth that much effort and a whole lot more."

Announcing Project Fight Back!

Pro-Life Activists Asked to Come to the Defense of Pregnancy Help Centers

Life Decisions International (LDI) has long been a leader in defending pregnancy help centers against the unfounded attacks from Planned Parenthood and its ilk. LDI has pub-lished numerous articles pointing out the true nature of the accusations. "It is far past the time when we should be ed-ucating pro-life advocates about the persecution faced by those who work and volunteer for pregnancy help centers," said LDI President Douglas R. Scott, Jr., in a statement to the media. "Now is the time when we must fight back."

Yes, now it is time to fight back.
"We do not simply want to defend pregnancy help centers," Scott said. "We want to put Planned Parenthood on the defensive. We want to open the eyes of the public to the horror that is Planned Parenthood. And we want to make the Planned Parenthood hierarchy re-gret the day they first began the campaign of disinformation against pregnancy help centers."

IMPORTANT WARNING: Several individuals are circulating lists of alleged corporate supporters of pro-abortion groups, most of which are grossly outdated or flatly inaccurate. The criteria used to label a corporation a supporter of abortion varies widely. Some list publishers employ no specific standards whatsoever. Please be sure the list you use is from an organization you trust--one with a reputation for standing behind what it pub-lishes without hesitation.

Organization Watch

Find out which organizations and institutions are on record supporting federal funding of embryonic stem cell experimen-tation. You will also find information about which organiza-tions support reauthorization of Title X, the U.S. Government's failed birth control program, which groups supported abortion-on-demand in the Webster case decided by the Supreme Court, and which groups opposed Senate confirmation of John G. Roberts, Jr., to be Chief Justice of the United States.

The Boycott List (see above) includes a section called Dishonorable Mention, which lists seemingly innocuous non-profit organizations that are involved with Planned Parenthood or otherwise active in the Culture of Death. Among the groups included are Outward Bound West, American Automobile Association, Kaiser Permanente, American Cancer Society, Dr. Phil Foundation, Camp Fire, Girl Scouts, Kiwanis Club, Rotary International, March of Dimes, Lions Club, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the YWCA. Involvement ranges from donating funds to pro-abortion groups (or allowing affiliates to do so), supporting anti-life causes, allowing pro-abortion groups access to membership, adopting an official pro-abortion policy position, and so forth.

The November-December 2006 edition of LDI's newsletter,  The Caleb Report, has been mailed to LDI Partners. Subscri-bers may read about Planned Parenthood's 90th birthday, including how the group continues to praise its elitist and pro-eugenice founder, Margaret Sanger. Subscribers may also read about Free EC [Emergency Contraception] Day, the online game designed to promote the re-election of rabidly pro-abortion Governor Rod R. Blagojevich, D-Ill., the debate surrounding the Unborn Child Pain Awareness Act (S. 51), Planned Parenthood's new membership in the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, a Planned Parenthood fund-raising event featuring pro-abortion Al Gore, and much more.  (Past editions of The Caleb Report are available on this site.)

Pro-Abortion Ad Causes Stir

A provocative television advertisement released by the notori-ous Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (PPGG) has raised the ire of many people. It opens with an attractive woman who is using several tools, ostensibly at a construction site. "My father always told me to use the right tool for the right job," the woman says in a voiceover. Leaving the site, she enters the bedroom of a man who opens the covers of his bed to invite her in. The woman, whose t-shirt reads, "Sex Is Sexy," readily accepts the invitation. The woman opens a tool kit that is full of sexually-related items. She grabs condoms and returns to the bed. The woman then says to the man, "Ooh, nice tool!" The screen then changes to show the words, "Planned Parenthood Golden Gate is your toolbox." If you would like to view the ad, please send us an e-mail and we will send it to you.

Planned Parenthood Video Shows Murder Of Christians

It seems that Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (PPGG)  is not willing to take the heat generated from its release of an animated video that depicts the murder of Christian pro-life activists. After Life Decisions International and other pro-life organizations publicly criticized PPGG, the abortion-commit-ting group deactivated its website link to the video, but if you would like to view it, please send us an e-mail and we will send it to you. You will also want to read The Caleb Report (July-August 2005 edition; pdf format) for an important and eye-opening analysis of the video and its content (including still frames from the video).

I imagine Roy or Walt Disney would be quite upset at the direction Disney has gone with the support of abortion and the infamous gay days.

Don't forget, the biggest donors to Planned Parenthood are the taxpayers of the United States of America via the pro-life, republican party who controlled congress for the past 12 years. Over $1.3 billion in Title X money for "family" planning?

Title X, the birth & population control bill that funds Planned Parenthood, the nations largest provider of surgical abortions.

The March of Dimes went off track many decades ago, when they ceased to be an anti-TB organization and instead focused on birth defects.

The main reason for focusing on birth defects is to abort these "defective" babies before they have a chance to live.

No, it does not. and even if it did, how could one justify giving hundreds of millions to planned barrenhood every year, America's largest abortion provider, for a few abstinence programs that nobody knows about.

DO NOT give your money in donation to United Way. Some of it will get to Planned Parenthood.

Give donations directly to whom you want......directly to those organization.

yea, i know..

I think title V and Title XX fund abstinence programs, and to tell you the truth, I have yet to see one advertised in the community section of the paper. I think I'll call some catholic hospitals in the area and see if they do anything.

The accusation that Whole Foods has donated to Planned Parenthood are patently FALSE. It is horribly irresponsible to allow such information to be posted without fact checking!

“Thank you for the heads up. Your instincts are correct and I wish everyone would confront us as you have rather than accept the boycotts at face value. It is against company policy for stores to donate to any politically charged organizations. We donate to thousands of organizations in our community, but we have never donated to Planned Parenthood, and I am disappointed that not one organizer of these boycotts has reached out to me to at least discuss their concerns. Thank you again.”

i know this is an old comment, but i was looking up companies that donated to pp and your comment and looked on the website you posted.

it actually says “By law, Title X funds may not be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.” on this page http://www.hhs.gov/opa/familyplanning/index.html

furthermore, “The Title X family planning program is intended to assist individuals in determining the number and spacing of their children. This promotes positive birth outcomes and healthy families. The education, counseling, and medical services available in Title X-funded clinic settings assist couples in achieving these goals.” this is on that same page

i personally do not know much about Title X and what else it does, but the site clearly says the money should not be going towards abortion planning.

on another note, i’ve been trying very hard to verify that Chase still donates to pp but am having trouble finding it on sites that aren’t pro-life ones. just making sure, b/c of the whole foods thing. anyone know?

>>>>

That statement means absolutely nothing. For one thing, the hyde amendment must be renewed every year. Then I use the following example: Suppose bill gates who loved computers and let's say, hated history, and let's say that he donated 300 million to a private high school, with one stipulation, “this money can be spent on any program you choose except for the history dept. as I hated history in school”. So, here you have a private high school that now has $300 million in which to spend.

They can now spend money on new labs, a tuition assistance program where the tuition is free, advertise and promote the school, build new gyms and swimming pools, buy new textbooks (except history) and so on.

Now, do you think bill gates’ donation helped the entire school? even though his gates’ dollars are not paying for improvements in the history dept.???

the answer is YES, and the same goes to planned parenthood which receives millions per year enabling the following:

with millions of our tax money going to an organization that PROMOTES abortion in high schools, housing project youth summer programs, with teens and college students, who supply coloring books to kids, condoms and birth control to young kids and spends millions against republican candidates. These benefits come from the taxpayers and that's why we should not fund Title X. Planned Parenthood Benefits.

And, do you really think someone from the government is in each planned parenthood office making sure the money is spent as intended. We still pay $800 for a toilet seat and see the stimulus money going to fake congressional districts and the like... let's get real...

Also, you should also note that not one penny goes towards crisis pregnancy centers that save thousands of babies per year and helping them and their mothers get a good start in life.

Anyone who believe that planned parenthood does not use tax-payer funding for abortion is very gullible, and anyone who believes that by giving $300 million per year to centers that “promote” abortion and not doing them thinks that the money they receive from title x is not benefit ting these organizations is also very gullible.
