Green Bay Packers get heat for grant to Planned Parenthood

The Green Bay Packers are wrapping up a successful football season and heading toward the playoffs. Off the field, however, the team also is being criticized for donating to Planned Parenthood.

The Green Bay Packers Foundation recently released the names of its annual grant fund recipients earlier this month, which included the abortion provider.

“The Packers foundation made a record-setting $2.05 million in donations to organizations, most of which are non-controversial charities that help with ‘the need areas of animal welfare, civic and community, environmental, health and wellness including drug/alcohol and domestic violence causes.’”

In announcing the grants, the foundation stated, “This year’s grant cycle focused on organizations that will direct the funds toward the need areas of animal welfare, civic and community, environmental, health and wellness including drug/alcohol and domestic violence causes. In 2020, the focus areas will be elderly, homelessness, human services and hunger causes.”

The foundation, which was started in 1986 by Judge Robert J. Parins, stated its mission was to “support charities possessing one or more of the following goals: perpetuates a community environment that promotes families and the competitive value of athletics; contributes to player and fan welfare; ensures the safety and education of children; and/or prevents cruelty to animals.”


Pro-Life Wisconsin said the donation to Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin “directly contradicts this mission,” adding, “If the foundation truly wanted to promote families and ensure the safety of children, they would not be financially investing in an organization that violently destroys children’s lives each and every day. Any perceived benefit Planned Parenthood provides to society is wiped out every time they kill a baby, which in their case is 4,639 times a year in Wisconsin alone. In just one day, they wipe out the approximate equivalent of an entire football team.”
