Nike Supports Abortion

Nike Logo
Nike funds the Population Council, an international nonprofit organization that supports abortion, according to the Council's website. The Council conducts biomedical, social science, and public health research, plus helps build research capacities in developing countries.

One-third of its research relates to HIV and AIDS. The other major program areas include reproductive health, poverty, youth, and gender. The Population Council "offers policymakers and healthcare providers the evidence they need to help communities implement safer abortion and postabortion care practices, increase positive health-seeking behavior, and reduce stigma."

Plus, Nike is involved with Planned Parenthood. Fortune magazine reported on July 13, 2015, "Nike matches its employees' contributions to the regional Planned Parenthood affiliate in Oregon, but didn't specify the sum."

On the Nike Foundation's 2014 tax form, Nike matches gifts to the Susan G. Komen New York City and Minnesota chapters which fund Planned Parenthood.
