Boycott The United Way - Until they Stop Funding Planned Parenthood

Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life of America: Last night the U.S. Senate failed our nation, failed our children and families and made an embarrassment out of a government that is sworn to protect the right to life. They failed to defund Planned Parenthood. In fact, 40 Senators voted to keep sending over half a billion dollars to Planned Parenthood, who has been caught on video haggling over the price of baby body parts and talking about how to skirt the law that bans the selling of these baby body parts.

You may be asking yourself, what can I do? Or you may have participated in one of the 65+ #WomenBetrayed rallies last week and want to do more to defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood gets close to 46% of its total revenue from the government (aka taxpayers) and we are working hard to stop that money from ever going into Planned Parenthood’s bank account again. But did you know that Planned Parenthood gets a quarter of its revenue from corporations and other organizations?

One specific organization – United Way – sends almost $2 million every year to Planned Parenthood through 67 of their affiliates. They say that the money goes towards education inside of Planned Parenthood.

Oh really? You can’t just donate to Planned Parenthood and say your donation is earmarked for utilities or staff or paper clips but not abortion. The building and the staff and the utilities all contribute in some way to abortion and are involved it.

Any money whatsoever going to Planned Parenthood in any way contributes to the more than 327,000 abortions they commit every year and the harvesting and selling of the body parts of aborted babies.

Students for Life of America and LifeSiteNews have partnered together to launch Boycott United Way in efforts to put pressure on the organization to stop funding Planned Parenthood all together.

You can send an email directly to the president of United Way at BoycottUnitedWay.org and ask him to stop funding Planned Parenthood right now.

Two million dollars is a lot of money. We have to stop every cent from going to Planned Parenthood. They are the nation’s abortion giant, doing one of every three abortions – and selling who knows how many baby body parts.

At BoycottUnitedWay.org, you can also contact each individual United Way affiliate and demand they stop sending money to Planned Parenthood.

United Way does a lot of good but Planned Parenthood was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies for profit. These are the most vulnerable in our society. If we allow for this kind of atrocity, what does that say about the state of this country, about the state of our souls as human beings that we would allow a baby to be aborted and sold piece by piece?

Please, go to BoycottUnitedWay.org now and send a letter to the president of United Way demanding they stop funding Planned Parenthood now.

Don't fund United Way even when they stop. They utilize the internal politics and pressure that businesses put on their employees to donate so that specific persons in the organization can get awards on their walls and resumes. Most of your donation is swallowed up in administration costs. Donate directly to the causes you believe in.

We have boycotted UNITED WAY for decades because of this.
