Verizon and Abortion

While not nearly as bad as AT&T in their overt support for abortion and the politicians that support it, Verizon is still a company that has provided significant enabling capital to lots of politicians who are pro-Abortion.
Verizon, formed in the year 2000 from a collection of Baby Bells, inherited the Bell legacy of pro-abortion contributions (as detailed about AT&T and their 25 year history of supporting Planned Parenthood).
AT&T got a head start in political giving, but Verizon has spent tens of millions trying to influence elections on behalf of liberal candidates.
Like AT&T, Verizon has given untold millions of dollars to candidates at the local, state and federal level that are in support of abortion.
Barack Obama – The man who said “God Bless Planned Parenthood” has been supported by Verizon in every election since 2004. Similar to AT&T, Obama is the single largest beneficiary of Verizon’s political activity since 2004. In fact he has almost triple the funding as any other Verizon backed candidate.
Hillary Clinton – The winner of Planned Parenthood’s founder award said how much she admired Planned Parenthood. She is also famous for her desire for abortion to be “Safe and Legal”. Despite not having run for office since 2008 – Hillary still qualifies as Verizon’s 2nd highest liberal beneficiary since 2004.
In 2013, five liberal politicians introduced a bill that was designed to offset gains pro-life groups had won at the state level and ensure access to abortions. These politicians were Senator Richard Blumenthal, Senator Barbara Boxer, and Senator Tammy Baldwin, along with Reps. Lois Frankel and Marcia Fudge. All five of these politicians/abortion leaders were generously provided campaign funds by Verizon (as well as AT&T).
Verizon also provided funds to a number of Emily’s list candidates, as well as members of the Bipartisan Congressional Pro-Choice Conference (which has zero members who are Republicans… so not very bipartisan). They also provided funds to more than 200 elected officials who got a perfect 100% in a Naral Rating.
Verizon has provided tens of millions of dollars to liberals at all levels of elections throughout this country. In fact, they have provided funds to 4,000+ election winners who were democrats.
How many abortions have occurred as a result of Verizon and their seemingly corporate focus on killing the unborn? Did the city councilman who was the swing vote on the new abortion clinic in town receive Verizon’s tainted money? What about the young state representative who beat the pro-life candidate in thanks to Verizon’s support?
There is an alternative to the pro-abortion agenda pushed by the major phone companies.
