Do You Inadvertently Support Planned Parenthood and Other Pro-Abort Groups?

I got a call this week from the American Diabetes Association asking me to send out letters and collect in my neighborhood. Thanks to Life Decisions International I had the information I needed to say no. You see, I recently ordered their boycott list  which targets corporations, businesses, nonprofits, etc. that support Planned Parenthood. It's updated frequently so you can see the success of your efforts. In fact, the latest issue of the The Boycott List says, "For the first time ever, no corporations have been added." Wow! Companies are beginning to recognize that support for abortion is bad for business.

By choosing even a few companies off The Boycott List and letting them know you won't support them until they stop supporting Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups you can make a difference! Here's a sampling from Life Decisions' website. I've highlighted a few. Some may surprise you, some you may probably already know about. Now that you know, if the American Cancer Society or Easter Seals calls you for fundraising help, tell them you won't support Planned Parenthood. We're dropping our AAA membership for another auto club that doesn't help kill babies:
The Boycott List includes a section called Dishonorable Mention, which lists seemingly innocuous nonprofit 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 (AAA), Kaiser Permanente, Dr. Phil Foundation, Lions Clubs, American Cancer Society, Easter Seals, Boys & Girls Clubs, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Camp Fire, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts, Kiwanis Clubs, March of Dimes, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Rotary Clubs, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The Salvation Army, YWCA, America Gives Back (formerly [American] Idol Gives Back), YMCA, American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), American Diabetes Association. 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.
I urge readers to buy their own copies of The Boycott List. Help Life Decisions keep this important apostolate going.

Thank you, Mary Ann! I have had to do the same thing a few times. It seems that once one organization finds out I'm willing to do neighborhood begging, lots of others do too. And it's hard to say no politely when they keep hammering-yammering at me.

Our diocese supports/promotes the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

It is promoted within our diocesan newspaper, even.

A deacon friend of mine approached our bishop about this scandal. The bishop replied to him, "Don't even go there."!!

The bishop explained that the SGK foundation "does a lot of good things" to help women - and so on and so forth.

Lord have mercy!

I thought that you can never allow an evil even though a proposed good may come from it (see CCC 1756).

Sad to say many bishops are cowards. He obviously expects a lot of flack if he exercises his authority and does his duty. What does the Lord say about the shepherd who runs away and leaves the flock to the wolves?

SG Komen brings in lots of money which is used for funding breast cancer "treatments" which are often found to do more harm than good. I stopped giving to them (and Girl Scouts) long before I knew about their support of Planned Barrenhood. Should parishes even be involved in Girl Scouts anymore?

Can you confirm for me that Anheuser Busch is still off the list?

Mary Ann Kreitzer said...

I don't see them on the list and they said that for the first time, no new names have been added. It's pretty extensive anyhow unfortunately. Let's pray that this latest round of scandals with Planned Parenthood wakes up a lot of corporations to their agenda which includes protecting child predators and enabling those who engage in human traficking of minors. It's disgraceful that our tax dollars are funding this!

This should be updated:

Likewise,do you know if the company that distributes Tetra fish food is on that list ? I found a list from 1993 that lists them (It was the only brand of fish food available as I had run out :-/), however I'm not so sure how accurate that is.

Unfortunately it was short lived.

Do you have an updated list available or do you know if Boys Club still supports PP?
