Meet the 40 Companies That Donate Directly to Planned Parenthood

From Douglas Wilson:

“The War Between the States would have ended a lot sooner if Meade had pursued Lee after Gettysburg. Ahithophel hanged himself because his counsel of pursuit of David by Absalom was rejected (2 Sam. 17:1-2). Gideon prevailed in his great battle with Midian because he honored the principle of pursuit (Judg. 8:4). Pursuit is crucial; follow through is essential.

We have every reason to believe that the Center for Medical Progress is on top of this. The fact that they obtained the sting videos they did is beyond praise, and thus far they are dropping their grenades, two so far, with exquisite timing. Word has it that more are coming. We have every reason to believe that CMP understands the need for continued pressure and pursuit.

At the same time, what they are doing will not work unless the pro-life public joins in the pursuit. That is what has made this so explosive so far, and if we continue to respond as we have been doing it will remain explosive. Without such pursuit, it will not.

When Congress reconvenes this fall, we will no doubt have a pitched battle over federal funding for Planned Parenthood. This is as it should be, and a lot of money for PP is at stake. Compared to a military campaign, that battle will be the equivalent of besieging the capital city. But like a capital city, the walls there are thick and well-reinforced. Because we are ostensibly a democracy, that fortress is configured to look like it is open to your input. But for the most part, whenever an uproar starts, they are prepared to withstand it. They do withstand most of them. Most “marches on Washington” end, everybody goes home, and the Beltway Natives go back to being themselves. But sometimes real changes do happen. We want this to be one of those times.

So the principal of pursuit needs to be observed before the ultimate political battle is joined. Between now and then, we need to go after certain designated soft targets that are directly related to all this. Does your corporation give money to Planned Parenthood? In the light of these videos, you are certainly in a position to ask why. So why not ask why?

The moment is right, and the momentum is good. Nobody wants to defend what is going on in those videos. Look at the candidates for the Democratic nomination — that’s a crew that is willing to defend truckloads of indefensible things, and on this subject all of them have their heads down to study patterns in the carpet. And so the question must constantly be posed – do you want to support what is going on in those videos? The only possible answers are, “no, we should quit supporting them,” or “yes, we should support them.” But nobody wants to say “yes, we should support them.” So ask the hard questions that require one response or the other.

Fortress Washington is ready for us, in other words. There are many entities, corporations, and philanthropic organizations that are not nearly as ready. I suggest we start with them.”
