Pro-Life Boycott List

Life Decisions International, LDI has compiled the complete de facto list of Corporations that donate to Planned Parenthood, and presents a compelling case as to why all of us Pro-Lifers should boycott these businesses, and why we should write to the their CEOs and express our disgust with their business decision to financially support the largest abortion business in the United States. This list is updated, and so far 281 Corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood because of these boycotts, to the tune of $41 Million. This week the LDI Pro-Life Letter writing campaign targets: Mr. William R. Pippin, Pres. Stanbio Laboratory Inc. 1261 N. Main St., Boeme, TX 78006. 800-531-5535 Sample Letter

Some Good News on the Marriage Front: "The message we sent was pretty simple," said Brian Brown, executive director of NOM. "If you are a Republican and you vote for [gay] marriage, you are going to lose."

According to the Associated Press: "Republican primary voters in New York punished two incumbents last week who voted to legalize same-sex marriage, firing a potential warning shot nationwide toward GOP lawmakers who could soon face tough votes in their states.

Two of the four veteran-and long-secure-Republican senators in New York who voted for same-sex marriage a year ago await counts of absentee ballots as they sweat out the political fight of their lives. A third announced his retirement this year in the face of strong opposition to his gay marriage vote.

"Any Republican legislator faced with this vote is going to think twice," said Robert Bellafiore, a political commentator and former top aide to Republican Gov. George Pataki of New York. "I don't think there is any question this going to have a chilling effect across the country."

John Fund in National Review put it the most simply in his editorial, "Gay Marriage Backers Face Consequences in N.Y. Primaries"

Bill McCarthy is the Pro-Life State Rep candidate in the Worcester 14th/W.Boylston district. Time to throw out Pro-abortion, Pro-Same-Sex Marriage incumbent Jim O'Day
When we first obtained the 2009 Planned Parenthood application for the Central Massachusetts Title X federal grant, we were very surprised to find recommendation letters from many Central Massachusetts politicians as part of the application. State Representative James O'Day (Worcester - 14th) wrote a recommendation letter. In the grant application, there was a page listing the members of the Central Massachusetts Planned Parenthood Advisory Committee; Rachel McCook, a staffer for James O'Day, was on that committee.

State Representative James O'Day (14th Worcester) has long been a leading proponent for the Planned Parenthood facility on Lincoln Street in Worcester (as he calls it, his district). At the state Health Council- PP DON meeting on July 9, 2008, O'Day spoke in favor of the proposed Planned Parenthood facility on Pleasant Street, Worcester

"A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law." Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Even though a gay man walked into the lobby of Family Research Council, FRC in Washington D.C., and opened fire; when tackled by the Johnson building manager whom he shot, the shooter begged for his life saying "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for." Yet the Southern Poverty Law Center, SPLC still labels the FRC a Hate group for its defense of Traditional Marriage.
