Life is full of ironies. But, as ironies go, it’s hard to beat a toy store that funded Planned Parenthood going out of business, due in part to a declining birth rate.
After filing for bankruptcy, Toys R Us is having going-out-of-business sales at all its stores. Life Decisions International disclosed that for years, the retail giant funded Planned Parenthood -- just like Target and Starbucks. Even after it claimed it had stopped giving to PPF (which commits 300,000 abortions a year in this country), it matched gifts to a fund that supported Dead Babies R Us.
In 2015, the U.S. fertility rate (the number of children the average woman will have in her lifetime) sank to 1.84 – well below the replacement level of 2.1 and less than 1/3 of the 1960s rate (3.7).
Political correctness holds such sway over corporate America, that Toys R Us was willing to kill off future customers to be a “good corporate citizen” today. Now it’s dead too.
