Exxon Claims It Does Not Endorse Planned Parenthood

Published on 12 Dec 2016, 20:16
On Monday, ExxonMobil revealed to BuzzFeed News that while its employees donate to Planned Parenthood, the company itself doesn’t endorse the organization. The statement comes amid reports that the company's CEO and Chairman Rex Tillerson is the favorite to be President-Elect Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of State. ExxonMobile spokesperson Alan Jeffers said in an email to BuzzFeed on Monday, "ExxonMobil funding for Planned Parenthood organizations has been made through our employee/retiree matching gift and volunteer programs, which exist to support our employees and retirees in their personal philanthropic giving and community involvement." He then added, "Our giving through these programs is based entirely on employees and retirees’ support for these organizations and does not reflect ExxonMobil’s philanthropic priorities or support for community causes."
