Boycott For Life - Boycott These Organizations

Here is an important press release dated July 24, 2007:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Life Decisions International (LDI) will soon release a revised edition of The Boycott List, which identifies corporations that are boycott targets due to their support of Planned Parenthood, the world's leading abortion-advocacy group.

"As a direct result of the commitment, action and prayers of pro-family people, at least 153 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood," said LDI President Douglas R. Scott, Jr. It is estimated that the boycott has cost Planned Parenthood more than $35 million since the Corporate Funding Project (CFP) began some 15 years ago. "This should be a testament to those who believe it is impossible to change corporate philanthropic behavior.

Corporations appearing on The Boycott List for the first time are:
Allstate (insurance)
CCA Global (Carpet One, Flooring America, Flooring Canada, Flooring One, Lighting One, etc.)
Chevron (fuel/energy; Xpress Lube, Texaco)
Comcast (cable television, Internet, etc.)
DuPont (chem-icals)
eBay (online marketplace; PayPal)
Four Seasons Hotels (Regent Hotels)
GlaxoSmithKline (over-the-counter medication, prescription drugs, etc.)
Marriott (Courtyard Hotels, Fairfield Inn, Grand Residences, Hori-zons Hotels, JW Marriott Hotels, Renaissance Hotels & Inns, Ritz-Carlton Hotels, SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites)
OSI Restaurant Partners (Outback Steakhouse, etc.)
Sears (Kmart)
Sonic (drive-in restaurants)
... and Wawa (convenience stores), among others.

Corporations continuing as boycott targets from the pre-viously released Boycott List are:
Basics Office Products
Adobe (software)
Wachovia (finance)
Nike (shoes/ap-parel, etc.)
Time Warner (Cinemax, HBO, AOL, etc.)
Bank of America, CIGNA (insurance)
Walt Disney
Johnson & Johnson
Lost Arrow (Patagonia, etc.)
Wells Fargo
Whole Foods Market
...and Nationwide (insurance), among others.

The new Boycott List includes a revised and significantly expanded "Dishonorable Mention" section, which identifies charitable organizations that are associated with Planned Parenthood and/or its agenda. Among the groups new to this section is the:
Audubon Society
Alzheimer's Association
American Association of Retired Persons (AARP)
American Diabetes Association
Council of Churches (including Church World Service and CROP Hunger Walks)
Glaucoma Research Foundation
Juvenile Diabetes Foundation
Leukemia & Lympho-ma Society
Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)
National Education Association (NEA)
National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Save the Children
...and the Sierra Club, among others.

"The Pro-Life Movement will succeed only to the extent that pro-life people are willing to be inconvenienced," Scott said. "The very lives of children are worth that much effort and a whole lot more."

This is about the biggest list of GARBAGE I've ever heard!! I am an Ebay seller and have been since 1997 and NO I do NOT support abortion. I have 2 children who are type 1 diabetic and so YES I give to the diabetic charity in hopes for a cure for my 2 children.
I happen to own a pair of Nike tennis shoes, ONLY because it was the only pair I could find after trying every pair on the market that wouldn't make my heel spur hurt more.
I really can't possibly believe that you believe this garbage you're brainwashing people into believing. My daughter's boyfriend and his family are brainwashed with all this stuff. He says he won't eat this or that or shop from this or that and always the excuse is that they support abortion. I'm surprised he doesn't boycott our family saying that we support it because we support ebay, jdf, etc. I mean isn't that what you're saying when you say to boycott something? The more I read about religious groups pushing crazy restrictions on people, the more I want to withdrawl from religion all together! I don't believe that there should be restrictions on the way one dresses, eats, where they shop, etc. all in the name of abortion. I don't believe having God in your life is about restrictions to this extent. The only restrictions are the commandments. And all this other stuff is garbage. Reading and interpreting stuff that is hundreds of years old and trying to say it is about today is just out there. I suppose every generation is going to say whatever is going on in the world the Bible is talking about them. I don't believe it is possible for all events current and past to be one and the same in each scripture.

Hi Julile, thank you for your comments. Do non-religious organizations have the right to suggest to their members that they not buy from certain companies? Or is a boycott something that no one ever should do? You purchase from certain companies based on criteria you have determined. Can not other people buy or not buy from certain companies based on the criteria they determine?
