40 Companies That Fund Planned Parenthood and Selling Harvested Body Parts

UPDATE 2: Lots of these listed companies denied giving to Planned Parenthood and strongly requested that their name be removed. Sooo, the whole list has been removed from the Planned Parenthood site. Tweets, emails, letters, phone calls all helped to turn this around. Thanks to MaxRedline for posting on this!

UPDATE: The number of companies is now 39. Ford is not a contributor.  Melissa Quinn of the Daily Signal reports:
"Also, a Ford Motor Co. representative contacted The Daily Signal claiming they had been erroneously listed on Planned Parenthood’s website, and have contacted Planned Parenthood to be removed."
The Daily Signal has a list of 40 companies that directly fund Planned Parenthood.
. . . it’s not only the government that fills Planned Parenthood’s coffers. According to 2nd Vote, a website and app that tracks the flow of money from consumers to political causes, more than 25 percent of Planned Parenthood’s $1.3-billion annual revenue comes from private donations, which includes corporate contributions.
2nd Vote researched the corporations and organizations to find which supported Planned Parenthood and found that more than three dozen donated to the group. Some companies donated directly, while others matched employee gifts.
Forty-one corporations and organizations directly contribute to the group.
Planned Parenthood has come under heavy fire following the release of videos from the Center for Medical Progress.
The first video, released last week, showed Planned Parenthood senior executive Dr. Deborah Nucatola meeting with actors portraying buyers from a “human biologics company.” The “buyers” discussed the sale of fetal body parts with Nucatola over lunch.
In the second video, released today, Dr. Mary Gatter, president of Planned Parenthood’s medical directors council, is seen negotiating the price of aborted fetal body parts.
Here are the 40 companies that have directly funded Planned Parenthood.

I'll be writing to some of these asking how they feel about selling harvested body parts. I'll let them know that I find it abhorrent and disgusting and will avoid doing business with them if they are in favor of it.

Update: The original list had 41 companies. One was removed in an updated version of the story.

Yep, I ran across this earlier as well. One company was removed from the list because they actually don't contribute to PP.
It was a semi-pleasant surprise to find that most of the contributors are companies that I don't do business with. And won't.

Max, I sent tweets to the companies that I sometimes buy from and two for which I have credit cards (mostly unused). I just want them to know that their contribution is being noticed, and they better think hard about who they support.

Also, it sends a message about the toxicity and monstrosity of what Planned Parenthood is doing. Imagine hospitals selling body parts from patients who died in their care.

Ford does not belong on this list, according to an update at the original website:

Glad to hear that Ford is not on the list. Thanks, OG!

Looks like Planned Parenthood is messing up in lots of ways. First Xerox, and now Ford shouldn't be on the list of donors they hand out.

Since they get so much money from corporations, maybe it's time to stop giving them government money (in other words, ours).

Makes sense, ZZ. But when has the government ever made sense on spending? :-/
