.- Johnson & Johnson’s funding of Planned Parenthood is “antithetical” to its “best corporate interests” and should be stopped, said Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, president of Human Life International yesterday.

The Catholic priest addressed the corporation’s board of directors, executive management and shareholders at their meeting April 27 in New Brunswick, N.J. Human Life International is a stockholder in Johnson & Johnson.

“Human Life International is particularly distressed that any amount of funding should be given to a so-called ‘charitable’ organization that undermines the very consumer base of Johnson & Johnson,” Fr. Euteneuer told them.

“It is antithetical to your best corporate interests to be donating 'charitable funding' to an organization that eliminates babies and hurts mothers,” he said at the meeting.

He noted that Planned Parenthood Federation of America performed 255,000 surgical abortions last year, and 3.8 million abortions since 1970.

“To avoid further boycotts by other conscientious organizations and individuals, Johnson and Johnson should completely disavow any association with Planned Parenthood and any other group that profits from such drastic human rights violations,” he concluded.
