The Hewlett Foundation has granted International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) $8.3 million to support worldwide abortion.
Jim Hughes of Campaign Life Coalition said “don't buy their ink cartridges.” Pro-lifers who use Hewlett-Packard (HP) printers can send a message by investing in a new printer from another company, he said, but those who keep their old printers would be able to make a very significant impact by choosing to purchase refurbished ink cartridges. HP makes no profit from refurbished cartridges.
"If Hewlett Packard were whacked with laser beam precision right where it hurts financially for putting itself so firmly behind abortion supporters, that would have an impact on their thinking and actions," said Hughes.
"A sudden lurch the wrong direction (down) in the financial bedrock would be a tremendous blow, fiscally and psychologically. People at the top would notice, they'd want to know why, and they would do the research necessary to figure it out; they would learn."
So how about writing a short letter to HP right now. Something like this.
Dear Mr Hurd
I read on the internet at http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/dec/08121003.html that your company Hewlett-Packard is helping to fund abortion world wide by financially supporting Planned Parent Hood. It is wrong to kill children through abortion so I will no longer be purchasing any products from HP until they stop funding Planned Parent Hood.
