Heritage’s Daily Signal strips away some of @PPAct’s armor.

That’s how you do it. You don’t even have to raise your voice, at this stage. You simply say I see you, and wait to see who visibly flinches in response.

Representatives from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox say they’ve asked Planned Parenthood to remove their names as corporate donors to the embattled organization.

The move follows a Daily Signal report revealing the names of 41 companies that Planned Parenthood listed as donors. That list, which was featured on Planned Parenthood’s website, has since been removed.

More here: turns out the March of Dimes and the American Cancer Society also don’t want their name associated with Planned Parenthood right now. …Which is the idea. And this is actually useful work; they had that donor brag page up for a reason. It helped give the organization legitimacy. Now it’d help give the opposition to the organization legitimacy, which is why PP took the donor brag page down.

A good start, in other words.

    1. The tactics, properly applied, work quite well.
      That Vox didn’t follow his own advice during “rabid puppies” is on him.
      I don’t much care about Vox, these are literally the only two points where he’s come to my attention, and neither persuade me to change that.

        Same here. But I’ve heard he was smart, and he certainly seems to have suggested quite workable tactics here.

      2. Ah, you may not be aware that some of the stuff he folded into his Rabid Puppies material was bait he has been fishing with for years.
        I started keeping up with his coverage of publishing during either Sad Puppies 1, Sad Puppies 2, the last big MZB child molestation dust up, or the SFWA ‘expulsion’ thing.
        It makes a coherent whole that seems like it could be a viable PR strategy for him.

  1. Here is the reply I got from the National March of Dimes. I also got a personal call from my state March of Dimes rep saying the same thing. In both cases I thanked them for replying and said the answer just wasn’t good enough.

    FROM March of Dimes
    Good Afternoon,

    To set the record straight, the March of Dimes does not have a relationship with Planned Parenthood. Additionally, the March of Dimes does not promote or fund abortion services, nor may Foundation funds be used for directive counseling regarding abortion. Violation of this policy would be grounds for immediate cancellation of a grant or cooperative agreement. Since 2007, five local March of Dimes chapters have given local grants to Planned Parenthood exclusively for prenatal education. In these communities, these are the only such services available to improve the health of low-income women and reduce the risks of birth defects, low birthweight, and prematurity in their babies.

    1. Perhaps you could do a follow-up letter and suggest that the March of Dimes actually observe what “prenatal education” entails at Planned Parenthood. Considering the extraordinary number of abortions they’re doing…very little prenatal care and treatment is taking place.

      Doesn’t matter the corporations are tainted in the same way the Susan G. Komen foundation and the Girl Scouts are. Won’t give a penny to them since it came out that they support Planned Parenthood.

      Think of it as similar to giving to PETA, who euthanizes over 90% of their “rescues.”

      1. Yes, those are the points that I made re rather “prenatal” care was actually taking place. Requested they do audits, etc.

        Also not supporting Susan G. Komen and state why every time.

        But, Girl Scouts????
