From Political Outcast:

The Daily Signal put up a list of the 38 companies who donate to Planned Parenthood. It had been 41, since it was based upon the list that Planned Parenthood displayed on their website. Since the article was published, Ford, Coca Cola, and Xerox made haste to let us know they are no longer listed donors of Planned Parenthood.

This is important because large corporations notoriously do not want to take a moral stand if they do not have to.  We ought to contact these companies to see if they have an official statement with regard to the Center For Medical Progress videos which show Planned Parenthood Executives negotiating the sale of the remains of babies. All it takes is a letter, an email, or even a tweet asking if they have a statement on the videos in light of the fact that they actively support this organization. You needn’t threaten a boycott, not because you have ruled out a boycott, but because you never play your best card right away.

Most corporations will bend over backwards to accommodate a customer. If you’ve ever complained to a company about the poor quality of their shampoo or deodorant, you probably received a case of that shampoo or deodorant a week later. They understand margins are usually very thin, and losing even one customer matters. If you threaten a boycott, there is a good chance they will assume you are gone anyway, and not respond. But if you are a loyal customer inquiring what their stance is on Planned Parenthood in light of the videos, and enough of us do it, we’ll get an answer. We need to apply pressure and we need to apply it in the right way.

 

If contacting them via Twitter, here is a helpful template:

.[Corporation X], since you are a listed donor to #PlannedParenthood, what is your official stance on the @CtrMedProgress videos?
