Conservative Calls Out Bank of America CEO to His Face at Shareholder Meeting for Misleading about Ties to Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is bad news for a variety of reasons. They perform over 300,000 abortions a year. They cover up child rape. They lie about the services they provide. They sell baby parts. It’s just an evil organization all around.

Customers deserve to know if companies are forking over money to organizations like that.

Apparently, Bank of America isn’t being very honest about that.

According to tax documents published by conservative group 2ndVote, Bank of America donated over $50,000 to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates but the bank’s CEO wasn’t very forthcoming about that when asked about it by conservative shareholder Justin Danhof.

From The Daily Caller:

Danhof asked Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan if he could guarantee that matching gifts constituted the entirety of the company’s financial support of Planned Parenthood, and asked him to address pro-lifers he said are upset about the donations,  according to the audio.

Moynihan deferred to Andrew Plepler — Bank of America’s global head of environmental, social and governance — who gave a limited answer focused on donations from matching employee gifts, according to the audio.

“We have a very robust matching program, we make about 70,000 matching gifts, about 170 of those were to Planned Parenthood,” Plepler said on the audio. “Any eligible, authorized by the IRS, 501(c)3 [charity] is eligible for our program, including right to life groups.”

He didn’t address whether Bank of America’s support of Planned Parenthood goes beyond matching employee gifts, which 2ndVote said was misleading.

Here’s the audio.

Are you satisfied with these answers?

It’s hard to imagine anyone would ever give a dime to that organization knowing all the terrible things that go on there. It’s not about women’s health. It’s about raising money for Democrats and pushing abortion on demand.
