‘Words such as diversity, inclusiveness and prosperity mean nothing to the unborn lives that Planned Parenthood helps extinguish on a day-to-day basis…’
(Joshua Paladino, Liberty Headlines) Sasan Goodarzi, the CEO of Intuit, deflected a question about the company’s support of abortion giant Planned Parenthood, as well as the anti-religious LGBT advocacy group Out and Equal.
Intuit may be better known as the financial software and tax-preparation company that produces TurboTax and QuickBooks.
At its annual shareholders meeting on Jan. 17, conservative investor Justin Danhof asked Goodarzi about the company’s ties to these radical leftist organizations, the National Center for Public Policy Research reported in a press release.
“According to multiple reports, Intuit is one of only 38 companies that contribute funds to Planned Parenthood,” Danhof said.
After disclosing their contribution history, he asked “What do you have to say to the many millions of pro-life Americans who are deeply offended by your actions?”
“We deeply believe in our mission of empowering prosperity around the world…which means we care deeply and measure deeply around how inclusive we are,” Goodarzi said. “We think about diversity, and we think about that not only because it’s important internally—but those are the customers that we serve.”
Danhof released a list of the 38 companies that donate to Planned Parenthood.
He requested that pro-life Americans contact the corporations and the abortion provider to voice their opposition to their anti-life contributions and actions.
Danhof also revealed that Intuit has contributed to Out and Equal, “an organization that works to undermine religious protections which are supposed to be guaranteed under the U.S Constitution.”
Out and Equal campaigned against North Carolina’s bathroom bill, which prevented localities in the state from forcing males and females to use the same bathrooms.
It also lobbied against a 2016 bill in Georgia that sought to protect religious freedom.
“When presented with the very real problem of losing business because it chooses to support the very controversial Planned Parenthood, Intuit decided to virtue-signal,” Danhof said. “Words such as diversity, inclusiveness and prosperity mean nothing to the unborn lives that Planned Parenthood helps extinguish on a day-to-day basis.”
