Justin Danhof, general counsel and director of the Free Enterprise Project at the National Center for Public Policy Research, says corporations hear all the time from left-wing groups – and he argues that that needs to change.

Danhof, Justin (Nat'l Ctr for Public Policy Research)"We're going to send some of my colleagues to the March for Life [today in Washington, DC] to talk to some of the supporters there about what they can do to contract corporate America to try to turn the tide with corporations," Danhof tells OneNewsNow. "Again, they hear from the other side regularly; it can't just be me on the right that they hear from. I'm hoping we can get that message across to pro-life supporters today."

Danhof says individuals who own stock in a company can do a number of things, including attending a shareholder meeting and posing questions. "You should have the right to know which corporations are funding these groups," he emphasizes.

Danhof traveled Thursday to the annual meeting of Intuit investors to ask CEO Sasan Goodarzi about the company's donations to Planned Parenthood and anti-religious organizations.

"Goodarzi largely evaded the questions, but [he] did signal a willingness to reconsider the company's philanthropic activities," he reports. "The CEO opened the door, if only a crack, but it's only going to break through if pro-life Americans – and Americans who still believe that religious freedom is a constitutional value worth upholding – reach out to the company and let them know that."

Intuit, maker of Quickbooks and TurboTax, did not respond to OneNewsNow's request for comment.
