Earlier this week, Aetna announced it would be making a $200,000 donation to the “March for Our Lives” gun control rally that will be held in Washington, DC on March 24th.
CEO Mark Bertolini defended the decision in a statement claiming “gun violence is a public health issue” citing 7,000 annual gun-related deaths of individuals between the ages of 5 and 24.
However, a number Bertolini did not mention in his statement is the 321,384 deaths his company enabled last through its support for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.
Aetna is listed as a “Matching Gift Organization” by Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, which means despite Bertolini’s virtue signaling, his company helps sustain an a practice that ends hundreds of thousands of lives every year.
The Federalist’s Christopher Jacobs slammed Aetna for the inconsistencies on these issues:
On Twitter Thursday evening, I asked Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini if he considers abortion a public health issue — the company’s stated reason for contributing to the March for Our Lives. If Aetna purportedly cares so much about gun violence, it should similarly care about violence against the unborn. But I won’t hold my breath waiting for Aetna to contribute to the March for Life, or any other pro-life cause.
Don’t expect Aetna or Bertolini to address how Planned Parenthood and the overall abortion industry provides cover for other “public health issues” like human trafficking and sexual exploitation either.
