Christian Do You Really Have To Get That Starbucks Branded Coffee? Think About This...

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

Jeremiah 1:5

Life begins in the mind and intentions of God before it materializes physically from the realm of God.

Terminating life is not a benign activity.

It is the cessation of a person that God knows before anyone else can.

"I formed you, I knew you, I appointed you."

No life is ever pointless.

Supporting life termination is to be an enemy of God's plans and purposes.

Just days before Planned Parenthood's 100th anniversary, a conservative corporate watchdog has released an updated list of companies that fund America's largest abortion provider. (Reuters)

Last year, 2ndVote made headlines in conservative news for revealing Planned Parenthood's corporate donors after undercover videos exposed the abortion giant's harvesting of aborted baby parts.

 2ndVote updated that list, which includes names like Nike and Starbucks, last week in time for Planned Parenthood's big anniversary on Sunday, Oct. 16.

It's unlikely that the corporate media—which boast strong ties to Planned Parenthood and have been instructed to cover for Planned Parenthood—will publicize the funding of the controversial abortion giant.

(Although they have published lists targeting supposedly "anti-gay" companies like Chick-fil-A.)

In addition to 37 companies that directly fund Planned Parenthood, 2ndVote lists 200 companies that "have supported third-party groups that fund Planned Parenthood."

Those companies include CBS and NBC Universal.

Corporate donors make a difference.

 Planned Parenthood receives $1.3 billion in yearly revenue, and of that, "over 25 percent comes from private donations, including corporate contributions," according to 2ndVote.

 (Never mind the $553.7 million from the government.)

Here are the 37 companies that directly fund Planned Parenthood:
  1. Adobe
  2. American Express
  3. Avon
  4. Bank of America
  5. Bath and Body Works
  6. Ben and Jerry's
  7. Boeing
  8. Clorox
  9. Converse
  10. Deutsche Bank
  11. Dockers
  12. Energizer
  13. Expedia
  14. ExxonMobil
  15. Fannie Mae
  16. Groupon
  17. Intuit
  18. Johnson and Johnson
  19. La Senza
  20. Levi Strauss
  21. Liberty Mutual
  22. Macy's
  23. March of Dimes
  24. Microsoft
  25. Morgan Stanley
  26. Nike
  27. Oracle
  28. PepsiCo
  29. Pfizer
  30. Progressive Insurance
  31. Starbucks
  32. Susan G. Komen
  33. Tostitos
  34. Unilever
  35. United Way
  36. Verizon
  37. Wells Fargo
Since last summer, two companies are no longer listed: American Cancer Society and ATandT. Boeing was added to the list.

2ndVote, a self-described "conservative watchdog for corporate activism" launched in 2013, aims to "expose the corporate influence on major policy decisions" in order to "turn the tide on the attacks on conservative values and principles."

Executive Director Lance Wray told MRC Culture that his organization "researches and publishes only hard and reliable data."

"It scours over public records, official corporate reports, and other indicia of corporate sponsorships and public endorsements to which 2ndVote cites within its findings," he added, and also pointed to tax returns and information found on corporate websites.
