Coca-Cola says they’re not a supporter of Planned Parenthood

coca cola


Coca-Cola was listed as a corporate supporter of Planned Parenthood. They were on Planned Parenthood’s website. Various other outlets had attached Coca-Cola to Planned Parenthood.

This morning I received this email: 


I work for The Coca-Cola Company’s Public Affairs and Communications team and wanted to clarify something Mr. Erickson discussed regarding our company and Planned Parenthood.

We do not contribute to Planned Parenthood, and employee gifts to Planned Parenthood are not matched.

Please let me know if there are any follow up questions. We believe it’s important to set the record straight and trust that WSB and Mr. Erickson will help us in correcting this information for your listeners.

I’ll take it.

  1. Regrettably, for them, they spent all of their promotion budget on Sodomites and all their related perverts! But then again, maybe promoting the murder and dismemberment of babies for profit was a bridge too far even for them!

    Supporting those who kill the unborn is not a philanthropic effort.

    ANY association, for whatever purpose on your part with Planned Parenthood prevents my family’s financial association with Bath and Body Works.

    Please ensure we are removed from your mailing list.

    My input to your community relations team:
    May God open the eyes and hearts of those who choose to kill the unborn and those who fund them.

  3. I notice Coke said “we do not” they didn’t say “we DID not”. Kind of like what the meaning of “is” is.

  4. Tony, it sounds like they did not – from the link:
    “Just want to clarify, we did not change our policy – in fact, we have never matched employee gifts to Planned Parenthood. We were not listed as a corporate sponsor on Planned Parenthood’s website – we were listed among companies that match employee gifts. The implication was that gifts to them would be matched. This is why we asked them to correct their site. “
