Two major American companies made the courageous move of ending their support for the abortion industry through donations to abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
As LifeNews noted, Douglas Scott, president of Life Decisions International (LDI), announced that Kohls and Mrs. Fields are no longer boycott targets. It is estimated that LDI boycotts have cost Planned Parenthood more than $40 million in its 18 years of activism.
LDI has had several successes over the past few months. They recently announced that Enterprise car rentals, Forbes magazine, ING financial services, Toys”R”Us, Cisco Systems, Red Lion Hotels, Franchise Services, Rolex watch company, Kenneth Cole, and Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare have all ceased their donations to Planned Parenthood. To date, over 270 companies have agreed to stop monetary donations to Planned Parenthood, the result of boycotts and writing campaigns by pro-life activists.
Scott also noted that more companies have been removed from LDI’s boycott list in a six-month period than in any other six-month period. Clearly, more and more Americans are discovering the true mission of Planned Parenthood: high profits through more abortions. Planned Parenthood is increasingly at a disadvantage, with new technologies showing the humanity of the unborn child, as well the vastly pro-life younger generations.
Groups that remain on the boycott list include AOL, Darden Restaurants (operators of Bahama Breeze, The Capital Grille, LongHorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and Season 52), Ignite Restaurants (Brickhouse Tavern+Tap, Joe’s Crab Shack), Hilton Worldwide, Staples, Gap clothing stores, Freddie Mac, AlphaGraphics, WellsFargo, Nike, Time Warner, Bank of America, Nike, Walt Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Lost Arrow, Chevron, and Nationwide Insurance.

Keep the heat on the companies who continue to support the abortion industry. Through these efforts, along with pro-life legislators’ efforts to end federal funding of Planned Parenthood, we can truly make a difference in America.
