The international headquarters of the 2nd largest bank in the USA is facing protests this week over their support of Planned Parenthood which has been embattled in a scandal over their gruesome baby parts operation. Pro-life activists from across the country traveled to the headquarters of Bank of America (BOA) in Charlotte, North Carolina with a very public message to stockholders and BOA customers: This Bank Donates to Planned Parenthood.

BOA Protest 2

The campaign dubbed ProtestBOA, began last year when John Pisciotta, founder of Pro-life Waco began with his local Waco branch after confirming that BOA funded Planned Parenthood in their employee matching gifts program. Pisciotta said that since ProtestBOA began in Waco,Texas they have expanded to branches in Austin, Lubbock and Albuquerque. He said that he began the protests in response to the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood “deeply and callously involved in the market for fetal organs.”

“Additionally, the protests motivation includes the horrific fact that Planned Parenthood clinics in the USA commit over 300,000 abortions each year. By its actions, Planned Parenthood has disqualified itself from financial support from corporate America.”

In addition to Planned Parenthood, a quick look at past Bank of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. 990’s shows that they also contributed to their former research arm, Guttmacher Institute.

Pisciotta told Live Action News that prior to heading to the BOA Headquarters, he sent Bank executive Kerry Sullivan, President, Bank of America Charitable Foundation a letter which read in part:

    I know we share an interest in bringing an end to the Protest Bank of America movement. On the pro-life side, we do not believe that an organization as hyper-controversial as Planned Parenthood is a reasonable entity for inclusion in a corporate matching grant program. Planned Parenthood is the leader of the U.S. abortion industry—323,999 abortions in 2014. Additionally, for nearly a year, Planned Parenthood is been embroiled in controversy over its role in the market for fetal organs from aborted babies. The pro-life/pro-abortion contention has subsequently reached an unprecedented level. I would not have launched ProtestBOA last September were it not for revelations about Planned Parenthood harvesting and marketing fetal organs…

    I ask you to reconsider your inclusion of Planned Parenthood in your matching grants program. I am well aware that you do not include all 501c3 non-profits as designated by the IRS. Planned Parenthood should not be in the included category.

    I will be in Charlotte next week to protest. I would welcome the opportunity to visit with you to resolve the issue.

John Pisciotta and Flip Benham Protest BOA for SUpport of PLanned Parenthood

Joining Pisciotta at BOA’s headquarters was Flip Benham who has been active with pro-life group Operation Save America as several well as other local activists. Pisciotta reports that the Charlotte BOA protests which began this week, have been very positive and BOA customers have been quite supportive.

    The response was very positive at this busy intersection in uptown Charlotte. (I don’t think they say downtown.) There was none of the harshness from the other side that we get every once in a while in Austin. Generally, people either walked by or were positive. As expected, there were a lot of people thanking us for being on-site and standing for life.

Pisciotta is not a novice at exposing the evils of abortion. He has organized protests to expose the way Planned Parenthood marketed sex to children as well as targeting Susan G. Komen for their support of Planned Parenthood. Pisciotta along with other pro-life groups have also organized overpass demonstrations to expose the horrors of abortion.

He says that there are specific things that people can do today in an attempt to influence BOA to stop funding Planned Parenthood. He has listed those suggestions in a flyer that he has been handing out to BOA customers during his protests.

    #3 Close your BOA accounts and tell BOA why you did it.
    #4 Call your friends and let them know about BOA support for Planned Parenthood, which commits over 300,000 abortions every year.

“Here is the big one,” Pisciotta added, “Deliver a #ProtestBOA in your hometown. Pro-Life Waco will send you 3 large signs and guide you on how to #ProtestBOA.”

Bank of Abortion? Why a Texas pro-life group is protesting Bank of America

A Texas pro-life group is leading a campaign to convince a national financial institution to completely terminate its financial support for Planned Parenthood. According to Pro-life Waco, Bank of America supports Planned Parenthood through a 100% match for all employees donations. In addition to hundreds of thousands of abortions, Planned Parenthood was caught selling baby body parts in under cover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress this past summer.

According to John Pisciotta, director of Pro-life Waco, “The now-disgraced Planned Parenthood has descended below the KKK and tobacco corporations in merit for public respect,” he told Live Action News.

Dubbed the “Bank of Abortion”, Pisciotta said members of Pro-life Waco began their outreach campaign by protesting the Waco branch of Bank of America. Carrying large signs, the group explains to BOA customers what Planned Parenthood does and they ask customers to close their accounts. Now, Pisciotta is asking pro-lifers across the nation to take the truth of what Planned Parenthood does to their local Bank of America branch every week.

“A large number of protesters are NOT necessary for a big impact,” notes Pisciotta. “Even one person at a downtown branch can have a big impact.” he stated.

Pro-Life Waco has a record of successfully targeting those who collaborate with Planned Parenthood. Past efforts include the use of public pressure to expose the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts as well as Susan G. Komen.

According to Pisciotta, national efforts to protest Bank of America are currently going in Dallas (TX), Austin (TX) and Charlotte (NC) where Bank of America’s national headquarters is located.

Pisciotta tells Live Action News that he recently had a person came out of the bank with thumbs up saying, “I’ve just closed my account.”

We have some Austin “regulars” who stop by each week to cheer us on and bless us,” he said.

But Pisciotta said he also gets some criticism. He recently received a letter from a local resident claiming to be a Christian who is “appalled” they are at the bank. The woman, identified as Paula, said the group is grandstanding and called the pro-lifers “sidewalk bullies.” Pisciotta denies the claim, but points out that Paula is obviously an abortion supporter. She told Pisciotta that thousands are donating to Planned Parenthood because of his protests – a claim she could not possibly prove. Paula then referred to Pisciotta’s group as “the worst of the forced birthers,” ending the letter by demanding they “take [their] lying for the Lord back to the epicenter of Baptist crazy in Texas, and LEAVE IT THERE!” (emphasis was Paula’s).

Now, an Albuquerque, New Mexico group has just announced that they have joined the protest.

The pro-life group, Protest ABQ is also joining Pro-life Waco in protesting Bank of America and has released the following statement:

    “ProtestABQ is committed to unifying our protest efforts locally and nationally in opposition of the abortion cartel in America. We protest individuals and corporations that perpetuate, condone, and/or support the abortion industry which is killing the most defenseless individuals…children in the womb.”

“It is a great encouragement to know that while we are delivering #ProtestBOA in Austin, our friends from ProtestABQ are delivering #ProtestBOA in Albuquerque.

“BOA is going to feel some pain for financially supporting a so-called healthcare organization named Planned Parenthood. We hope this will lead to a national challenge to Bank of America for its entanglement with Planned Parenthood,” Pisciotta stated.

During a March 11, 2015 speech he gave at the Capitol, he said that abortion giant, Planned Parenthood was a Texas value.

Important to note is that Planned Parenthood is building a huge mega center abortion clinic in San Antonio and Kramer has contributed to the leaders of the city.

Pro-lifers claim that the city is ignoring an ordinance that would have prevented the renovations for the abortion mill, and continue to protest the clinic opening.

Alan Kramer is also the registered agent for, Delantero Investors, Ltd., which purchased the property for Planned Parenthood.

In addition to Kramer, Planned Parenthood of Texas also had a cadre of support from some liberal Texas legislators at their March 11th lobby day at the Austin state capitol.

Newly elected state Senator, Jose Menendez from San Antonio and Grand Prairie Rep. Chris Turner as spoke for the abortion giant.

But, criticized in all of this was not those who advocated abortion and the agenda of Planned Parenthood, a group founded in eugenic racism which covers for the sexual abuse of children.

Rather- it was the Texas legislatures who hung “Former Fetus” signs on their door to oppose Planned Parenthood.
