MACY’S STOPS FUNDING PLANNED PARENTHOOD
It is a miracle on 34th Street, perhaps. Macy’s will no longer donate money to Planned Parenthood according to 2nd Vote, a conservative watchdog that monitors corporate funding of liberal causes. The famous department store group has dropped the role of benefactor to Planned Parenthood, the group reports — their decision prompted by pro-life customers who complained about the practice. Still, 36 other major retailers and businesses continue donating to the cause, including Ben & Jerry’s, Nike, American Express, Starbucks and Verizon.
“This Christmas, pro-lifers should consider shopping at Macy’s. Because, as it turns out, the giant chain listens to its conservative consumers,” notes Katie Yoder, an analyst with Newsbusters.com who also monitors corporate advocacy efforts.
“It’s unlikely that the liberal media — which boast strong ties to Planned Parenthood and have been instructed to cover for the abortion giant — will publicize Macy’s funding halt,” she adds.
