Corporate supporters of Planned Parenthood are paying a price, as Life Decisions International continues to encourage people to boycott the firms and take their business elsewhere.

Co-founder and spokesman Doug Scott says Life Decisions International (LDI) issues the list twice a year, and it sees success, even before it is published.

cash in hand"On the new list, we now have 289 companies that have agreed to stop giving to Planned Parenthood, "Scott reports. "And thankfully, we've only got two to add this time, because several of the companies that we had identified as supporters of Planned Parenthood agreed to stop giving before they ever got on the list."

The two new ones are Intuit, which owns TurboTax, and VIA Rail Canada. Ministries, civic groups and other non-profits also donate or provide some form of support.


"Those will be things like the American Cancer Society," the LDI spokesman lists. "Of course, we all know about Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation -- they actually give directly to Planned Parenthood. YMCA, YWCA, Girls Inc., Girl Scouts -- those kinds of things have some sort of relationship with Planned Parenthood or its agenda."

Scott adds that since his group began publishing the boycott list 20 years ago, companies that support Planned Parenthood should understand they are not going to give up.

The abortion giant also receives more than a half-billion dollars in federal, state and local tax dollars.
