Is your money going to support abortion? Planned Parenthood supporters identified

-- Citizenlink (8/9/05)

SUMMARY: Pro-life group has compiled a boycott list of companies that give money to the abortion giant.

Pro-lifers who want to avoid patronizing businesses that give money to Planned Parenthood have a friend in Life Decisions International (LDI), which maintains a boycott list that tracks corporations that give money to the abortion giant.

LDI President Douglas R. Scott has been boycotting Planned Parenthood supporters for nearly 20 years.

"We have 116 corporations that have stopped giving to Planned Parenthood," he told Family News in Focus. "That has amounted over the past decade to 35 million dollars that Planned Parenthood is not receiving."

Companies still on the list of financial backers include Bank of America, Johnson & Johnson, the Walt Disney Co. and Levi Strauss. Scott said such corporations make up about a fourth of Planned Parenthood's annual income.

Jim Sedlak, executive director of the American Life League's STOPP International, said the boycott list is a good resource.

"We encourage everybody to follow their boycott list and to stop patronizing companies that support Planned Parenthood," he said. "We're also trying to get people motivated to cut off the taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. They actually get more from you and me, the taxpayers, then from corporations. Last year it was 265 million dollars."
