Planned Parenthood, in the face of a controvesry surrounding the videos showing high level officials discussing selling fetal body parts, has been asked to remove the names of several prominent companies from their list of donors on abortion giant's website.
The Daily Signal:
Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox say they’ve asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names as corporate donors to the embattled organization.But hold on. It actually gets better.
The move follows a Daily Signal report revealing the names of 41 companies that Planned Parenthood listed as donors. That list, which was featured on Planned Parenthood’s website, has since been removed.
Representatives from Coca-Cola and Ford have confirmed to the Daily Signal that they don't actually donate to Planned Parenthood. And they haven't in quite some time.
A representative from Coca-Cola confirmed for The Daily Signal the company does not contribute to Planned Parenthood, nor does it match employee contributions to the organization.So it turns out that Planned Parenthood, besides being baby killers, are also liars. Who'd have thought it, huh?
When told that its named appeared on Planned Parenthood’s website, the Coca-Cola representative said, “We’ll ask them to correct the information.”
Other companies voiced similar concerns about Planned Parenthood’s donor list.
“We are making sure that Ford Motor Company is not listed as a Planned Parenthood contributor on their website,” a representative from Ford told The Daily Signal.
“In addition, we do not offer an employee match for charitable contributions,” the Ford representative said. It has been at least 10 years since Ford stopped matching employee gift contributions, the representative added.
Update: You know, I thought I was done with this post but then I was thinking about it. You have to believe that Planned Parenthood knew that Coca-Cola and Ford Motor Co. hadn't given to them in years (if that's true. who know?). So they kept them on their website as donors because it's like getting a blurb for the back of your book by famous people. So does that mean I could just write a blurb for my website from famous people. Cardinal Burke says, "CMR is totally the greatest Catholic website...evah!" Or Pope Emeritus benedict XVI said, "I don't often read blogs but when I do, it's CMR for me."
Listing those big companies as donors is a way of saying, "C'mon all the cool kids are aborting babies so just join in."
Sickening. Kudos to the Daily Signal for this story. And as always thanks to the Center for Medical Progress for these videos which have changed everything.
Update to the update: Man, pro-lifers are the worst boycotters ever. We were supposed to be punishing companies for donating to PP and we were so innefective that those companies didn't even bother to inform us that they don't actually give to PP.
