Many of you have emailed to let us know the list of companies who support Planned Parenthood we published earlier this year is no longer working.
We have found new lists on a couple of different websites for Planned Parenthood affiliates.
The first comes from Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., Inc. They write:
“A partial list of companies with Corporate Matching Gift Programs includes: AT&T, Alcoa, American Express, Avon Products, Black & Decker, Circuit City, Citibank, Clorox, Coca-Cola, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Fidelity Investments, Ford Motor Company, Gannett, James River Corporation, Merck & Company, Microsoft Corporation, Motorola, Phillip Morris, T. Rowe Price, Prudential Insurance, Safeco Corporation, Sun Microsystems, Sunoco, Vanguard Group, Verizon, Washington Post Company, White & Case, Xerox Corporation“
We also found a PDF of companies that match employee donations to Planned Parenthood (courtesy of Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette). The list includes:
- American Express
- Bank of America
- Kraft Foods
- And others
Many Planned Parenthood websites also note that Planned Parenthood receives funds through United Way.
Those who have followed these lists in the past will note Starbucks is not named as a Planned Parenthood supporter. So far we have not been able to determine if Starbucks has ceased supporting Planned Parenthood, or if they were simply omitted from these “partial” lists.
It’s virtually impossible to know just how many companies support abortion organizations individually, but lists like these give consumers a rough idea of which businesses are backing Planned Parenthood and others.
