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.

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.

    #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.”

Baby delivered at 26 weeks comes to life after mother’s touch

Despite supporting Planned Parenthood, a Johnson’s Baby vid is highlighting the precious story of baby Jamie who was born at 26 weeks along with his twin sister Emily.

The message J+J wants to send is, “Every baby can benefit from a loving touch.”

Johnson Johnson Loving Touch

According to the vid, Parents Kate Ogg and husband David say that they tried for three years to have a baby when they discovered they were having twins.

At 26 weeks Kate was told she was going into labor and would have to deliver the babies early.

However, after a premature birth the couple was told their first baby, a little boy, did not make it.

Kate said she snatched Jamie away from the doctor, unwrapped him and told David to take off his clothes and to get into bed with her where they held him close to their hearts, because he was cold and they did not want him to die.

We just cried and cried,” Katie said.

We told him he had a sister and her name was Emily and she was going to be okay and he needed to look after her. And we had big plans for his life….and then he started to move.”

They told the midwives he was alive and doctors said Kate and David needed to say goodbye to Jamie, because, they said he would not make it.

But Kate would not let go – and finally – Jamie opened his eyes and grabbed his father’s finger.

It was the most astounding and amazing thing that had ever happened,” Kate said, “We realized it was because we had held him. And because he had the body heat of his mother and father and that soft cocooning warmth that’s what brought him back and gave him the time he needed to live.”

Jamie made a complete recovery and is now able to look after his sister, Emily.

Although this is an amazing promotion of the humanity of children born at 26 weeks by Johnson and Johnson, the money they donate to Planned Parenthood is being used to abort other babies who will never get a “loving tough” from their parents.
