The companies that give money to Planned Parenthood

The cultural left has made a practice of shaming and pressuring companies that give money to conservative and pro-traditional-family causes.  So, in light of the recent revelations about the abortion industry, perhaps it is fitting to identify companies that give money to Planned Parenthood.

After the jump is a list of corporate Planned Parenthood contributors.  It includes big financial companies, a representative of big oil, pharmaceutical manufacturers, junk food makers, and other big corporations that are usually considered bogeymen among liberals.  There are also high tech and fashion firms that one might expect.  Then there are  charities such as the March of Dimes and United Way.

UPDATE:  Some of these companies are already pulling out and denying that they give, as Planned Parenthood takes down the list from its website.  See this before you boycott.

UPDATE:  Coca-Cola has demanded that Planned Parenthood take its name off its list, saying it neither donates nor matches employee contributions to the organization.  Xerox and Ford (already removed from this list) made the same complaint.  (HT:  Mary Moerbe)

Yet another incriminating video of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is insisting that they do not violate the law by selling fetal tissue from the abortions they commit, that the video of an official talking about harvesting organs for money referred to shipping and handling costs only for legitimate scientific research.  But now yet another video has turned up, showing another Planned Parenthood official haggling about prices and pretty much confirming the organ trafficking charge.  See the video after the jump.
