Tweet These Companies that Support Planned Parenthood


Twitter Accounts for Companies who Support Planned Parenthood via @ACatholicNewbie

Not only should the U.S. government defund Planned Parenthood, we must reach out to companies that we frequent and demand they stop funding Planned Parenthood, as well.

By all means, send them emails and letters! But I think the easiest action you can start with is to bombard them on Twitter. I’ve compiled a partial list of Twitter accounts for the most well-known companies compiled by eVALUEator that support Planned Parenthood and drafted a sample tweet for you. All you have to do is copy and paste the tweet and fill in the name of the Twitter account of the company you are contacting.

Acccording to eVALUEator, a company that assists financial professionals to help their clients match their moral convictions, Planned Parenthood is 50 percent funded by the government and 25 percent funded from corporate sponsorship. They warn that many of these companies may be part of your retirement plans and they are listed on the S&P 500 and Fortune 500. So be aware and make sure you are not supporting them as an investor!

According to eVALUEator, the companies on their list have given corporate donations or sponsored an event within the last five years. This list comes from eVALUEator’s proprietary database, which has been developed over the past 20 years to get a clear picture of how companies employ their corporate assets.  eVALUEator says it seeks to: “remove all funding associated with abortion, abortifacients, fetal-tissue research, and all endeavors that seek to destroy human life.”

Let’s encourage these companies to stop funding abortions and the sale of baby body parts and let them know that otherwise, they will lose the support of the huge numbers of Christians!
