Defund the Bans

Funding the Bans
Download our full report (PDF)

In 2019, nine states passed oppressive anti-abortion laws, including Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Missouri. The lawmakers behind these bans receive financial support from the companies you interact with daily.

Fifteen big-name companies — AT&T, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Comcast, Delta Airlines, General Motors, Google, Johnson & Johnson, Lyft, Mastercard, Microsoft, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Uber and Walmart — boast their commitment to gender equality. But each of these companies contributed significant sums of money to support lawmakers who sponsored oppressive anti-abortion legislation.

We’re calling on these companies to divest from the overreaching legislators pushing laws that will rob women of their rights, and instead make comparable donations to organizations supporting women’s rights.

People expect corporate CEOs to be leaders and take a stand — it’s time for them to put their money where their mouth is and defund the bans.
