Question List of companies that support PP or abortion providers?

I've heard that Starbucks is one of them, and I've been boycotting it, but before I make a big deal of it w/ my family I want to be sure... And also I want to avoid any others. Does anyone know where I can find a list of companies that give funds to immoral organizations? An American list would be OK, although of course a Canadian one would be better... But any help is appreciated!

Pax tecum!

American Life League is the one that puts out the list, I think, but they charge for it. Check their website or do a google search for something like "planned parenthood supporters list".

In Christ,
Rand

Life Decisions International has a up-to-date boycott list for Planned Parenthood. It does cost $17 but it gives you names and addresses so you can write each company and tell them you will not do business with them. This is very important to do because they do change their minds.

Today with so many other companies supporting gay events, it's best to pick a few places that are not controversial and do business with them.

Pax vobiscum!

That first list is a little outdated now, I think. I had read that about a year or two ago Walt Disney pulled their funding of PP.

In Christ,

Human Rights Campaign is the lobbying arm of the gay movement. The list is on their site for corporations.

http://www.hrc.org/Template.cfm?Sect...ontentID=30089

http://www.hrc.org/Template.cfm?Sect...ontentID=33909

Also this is a list of corporate sponsors who funded the gay New
England Dinner in Ma. It is from the same site.

http://www.hrcboston.org/sponsors.html


I had some problems downloading list? (Interesting they supported Sen. Casey over Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania)

Thank you everyone for your help!

Do you think it is worth it to buy the lists, considering this stuff does change sometimes?

If one wants to avoid comanies that deal with planned parenthood, the first place to start is with the drug companies. They make the birth control pills and devices. It's easy. Just stop taking any medicine since it's likely the manufacturer has some connection to birth control products.

One could also avoid the stores that distribute such products, the transportation companies that move the products, the doctors that prescribe them, the universities that do the research, and the vast majority of Americans that support the system by consuming the products.

Here is a list of pro-homosexual companies if your interested

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/ar...TICLE_ID=52052

I also found this article from the AFA, saying its probably impossible to avoid all pro-abortion or pro-homosexual companies but if we can just boycott a couple and make their sales go down that will send a message to other companies:

here is the link to that article:

The high degree of economic integration in our society makes it likely that almost the entire society can be found to be complicit in just about any product. A list of supporters implies a corresponding list of those who are innocent of such support. I'd say for most products, the first list is vary long, while the second is very short.

I buy the list from LDI about every three+ years.. I would buy nothing from the gay lobbyists - Human Rights Campaign.

The list from Life Decision International(LDI) has only about 40+ companies now on it. The original list had about 100+ but many have stopped funding Planned Parenthood(PP). The good thing is as I said earlier the importance of writing letters. You also can get extra copies from LDI for $2-3 that you can give out.

When I looked at the list of the corporations funding the gay pride parade, etc. I see some on the list that are funding PP and many that originally funded PP but have stopped.(General Mills, Xerox, Whirlpool, Liz Clairborn, SC Johnson, etc.) I wish I had kept my older copies of Life Decision International with the 100+ addresses because then I could just write and ask them now to stop funding the gay pride events.

I am going to ask LDI if there is anyway to get an older list with the original companies. Probably not. The CEO would be different. Otherwise there is a book in the Reference section of the Library with the corporations addresses but its alot of work to look them up.
