Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion company. It also has a massively influential political machine that has led the Democratic Party to support taxpayer-funded abortions anytime, anywhere, for any reason. They say jump and Democrats don’t bother asking how high, as we saw with the Kavanaugh debacle where at least one Democrat said she believes uncorroborated and unproven claims of sexual assault because Kavanaugh is pro-life.
2ndVote shoppers can help stop this by forcing United Way chapters to stop funding Planned Parenthood. $2.7 million might not be a lot of money compared to Planned Parenthood’s billion-plus annual revenues, but such a drop in funding would be a strong sign that the times are changing for the abortion industry. And those dollars fund thousands of abortions.
Why target United Way over Planned Parenthood’s corporate donors? First, target them all! Second, though, United Way is clearly unnerved at the attention they are getting. They not only dodged the issue in a statement, but they also stealth-edited out of the statement the fact that “a small number” of chapters donate to Planned Parenthood.
The fact is that United Way is scared to be associated with Planned Parenthood. 2ndVote activists can take advantage of this and really put the pressure on United Way. If United Way chapters stop donating, we could see other groups — non-profit and corporate — realize that they should stop funding Planned Parenthood if they want support from grassroots Americans.
