After two undercover videos were released allegedly showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal body parts, Republicans in Congress are working at stripping Planned Parenthood of its federal funding.

However, it’s not only the government that funds the leading abortion provider.

According to 2nd Vote, a website that tracks the flow of money from consumers to political causes, over 25% of Planned Parenthood’s $1.3-billion annual revenue comes from private donations — which includes corporate contributions.

The website uncovered more than three dozen corporations and organizations that directly contribute to the group. The companies that didn’t donate directly matched employee gifts.

Coca-cola, Ford and Xerox were wrongfully listed as donors.
 Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox openly state they’ve requested Planned Parenthood to take their company’s names out as corporate donors to the controversial organization.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) – Planned Parenthood is now faced with federal and state investigations and the probability of losing taxpayer funding. As featured in recent reports, the uproar with Planned Parenthood took off in the wake of two undercover videos that revealed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of baby body parts, to the disappointment and anger of many.

Earlier this week, spokespersons from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox contacted a media outlet to say they were erroneously listed as corporate donors to the company and have requested that Planned Parenthood take their names off its website.

A Coca-cola representative confirmed that the company does not donate to Planned Parenthood. A representative from Ford Motor Company also stated, “We are making sure that Ford Motor Company is not listed as a Planned Parenthood contributor on their website. In addition, we do not offer an employee match for charitable contributions.”

Xerox claims the same thing and stated it also does not donate in any way. “We checked our files for the last 20 years and have no record of Xerox Corp. contributing to Planned Parenthood,” Xerox’s representative.

On July 22, Planned Parenthood officially removed Xerox from its list of companies that match donations to the organization. The following morning, Planned Parenthood removed every company name listed as a donor.

Instead of listing companies by name, the site now displays, “Does your employer match charitable contributions? If so, please contact your Human Resources Department for more information about how your gift may be matched.”

Planned Parenthood Pulls Names of Corporate Donors After Coca-Cola, Ford and Xerox Object

Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox say they’ve asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names as corporate donors to the embattled organization.

The move follows a Daily Signal report revealing the names of 41 companies that Planned Parenthood listed as donors. That list, which was featured on Planned Parenthood’s website, has since been removed.

This latest development comes in the wake of two undercover videos that showed Planned Parenthood executives talking about the sale of fetal body parts. Planned Parenthood is facing both federal and state investigations—and the possibility of losing taxpayer funding.

The Daily Signal is the multimedia news organization of The Heritage Foundation.  We’ll respect your inbox and keep you informed.

Earlier this week, The Daily Signal used information from 2nd Vote to publish the names of 41 companies listed by Planned Parenthood as contributors. Shortly after the story was published, representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox contacted The Daily Signal to say they were erroneously listed and had requested that Planned Parenthood take them off its website.

The companies were cited by Planned Parenthood as employers who match charitable contributions. Planned Parenthood is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is exempt from paying federal income taxes.

A representative from Coca-Cola confirmed for The Daily Signal that the company does not contribute to Planned Parenthood, nor does it match employee contributions to the organization.

When told that its named appeared on Planned Parenthood’s website, the Coca-Cola representative said, “We’ll ask them to correct the information.”

Other companies voiced similar concerns about Planned Parenthood’s donor list.

“We are making sure that Ford Motor Company is not listed as a Planned Parenthood contributor on their website,” a representative from Ford told The Daily Signal.

“In addition, we do not offer an employee match for charitable contributions,” the Ford representative said. It has been at least 10 years since Ford stopped matching employee gift contributions, the representative added.

Similarly, Xerox was listed on the Planned Parenthood website and has said it also does not donate in any way.

“We checked our files for the last 20 years and have no record of Xerox Corp. contributing to Planned Parenthood,” a representative from Xerox told The Daily Signal.

By Wednesday afternoon, Planned Parenthood had removed Xerox from its list of companies that match gifts to the organization. By Thursday morning, Planned Parenthood removed every company name listed as a donor.

Instead of listing companies by name, the site simply says, “Does your employer match charitable contributions? If so, please contact your Human Resources Department for more information about how your gift may be matched.”

Planned Parenthood did not return The Daily Signal’s request for comment.

This comes less than two weeks after an undercover video describing Planned Parenthood’s sale of fetal body parts was released.

Daily Signal reporters Melissa Quinn and Kate Scanlon contributed to this story.
