I never, ever in my wildest dreams thought that by shopping at my local grocery store, eating at my favorite restaurant or supporting a local charity that I would be supporting an organization such as Planned Parenthood. I had no idea!
A friend of mine has set me straight. I am called to be a good steward of the blessings God has provided. I’ve done my research, and as the primary budget keeper, food shopper and clothing purchaser of my household, I’m putting my money where my faith is – well, actually I’m NOT putting my money where my faith ISN’T. I’ve ordered the Boycott List from Life Decisions International, and once it arrives I’ll be reviewing it and then deliberatly boycotting products and services from companies who donate funds to Planned Parenthood. Furthermore, I’ll be instructing my investment manager to divert my hard earned retirement funds AWAY from these same companies.
It won’t be easy. I’ll have to stop buying used books from half.com, since eBay is on the Boycott List. I’ll no longer support the Susan B. Komen foundation – I’ll be sending my dontations directly to the American Cancer Society instead. I am willing to be inconvenienced to do what is right.
LDI points out in their Boycott List, “you do not want to cooperate with evil or help make it possible for others to do evil. If Company XYZ wants to find Planned Parenthood it will not be with the money God has placed in your care.”
Here’s how to order a Boycott List for your family. It includes a comprehensive list of brand names for each boycotted company as well as contact information, as well as an FAQ with guidance about how to write to these companies.
My boycott is small act of defiance by one angry Mom; hopefully to be joined with a million other small acts of defiance, all leading up to the eventual demise of Planned Parenthood.
