Nike a major supporter of abortion, LGBT

Nike logo (red)Nike, one of the world’s largest suppliers of athletic shoes, apparel and sports equipment, has been found to also be a major supporter of the abortion industry and the LGBT agenda.

The popular sports gear company known by its iconic Nike “Swoosh” and its unavoidable slogan “Just Do It,” is a major funder of Planned Parenthood, the pro-abortion Susan G. Komen group and the Population Council – a nonprofit organization that promotes abortion.

Doing abortion

Despite all of the world’s largest abortion provider’s scandals – including the selling of aborted baby body parts – Nike has continued its support of Planned Parenthood. This fact was divulged by a major business publication around the time undercover videos exposing the abortion giant’s profit for aborted body parts went viral on the Internet.

"Nike matches its employees' contributions to the regional Planned Parenthood affiliate in Oregon, but didn't specify the sum," Fortune magazine reported back in July 2015.

The multinational corporation headquartered near Beaverton, Oregon, located in the Portland metro area, is also heavily involved with the New York City and Minnesota chapters of the Susan G. Komen nonprofit organization, which also funds Planned Parenthood. It was explained on each of the chapters’ websites that Nike matches gifts the pro-abortion group receives from donors.

Nike, which recorded revenues of $24.1 billion for the 2012 fiscal year and was recently valued at $19 billion also funds the abortion-supporting Population Council organization – an international nonprofit – according to the Council’s website.

“[The Population Council] offers policymakers and healthcare providers the evidence they need to help communities implement safer abortion and post-abortion care practices, increase positive health-seeking behavior and reduce stigma," the pro-abortion group proclaims.

In addition, approximately one-third of the Council’s research is geared toward HIV and AIDS.

“The Council conducts biomedical, social science and public health research, plus helps build research capacities in developing countries,” the pro-life organization, 4 Winds Christian Athletics, reported in a press release last week. “The other major program areas include reproductive health [including abortion], poverty, youth and gender [promoting the LGBT agenda].”

Promoting athletics, death and homosexuality

With more than 44,000 employees across the globe, Nike and its nearly $20 billion of net worth is considered to be the most valuable brand in the sports business on Earth, yet much of its profits made in the name of promoting health and fitness goes toward destroying human life at its earliest stages and encouraging youth to embrace the destructive LGBT lifestyle.

For decades, many athletic icons -- from the former six-time NBA Champion Chicago Bulls’ Michael Jordan to Bo Jackson of the famous “Bo Knows” campaign focusing on his simultaneous professional careers in football and baseball in the ‘80s and ‘90s – have brought fame to the athletic gear company by promoting its shoes, which have worked to proliferate Nike’s influence nationally.

Nike has also made a name for itself internationally, and when doing so, it has promoted the LGBT agenda – another one of the corporation’s involvements that has been condemned by pro-family advocates.

Besides its multi-million-dollar sponsorships of athletes through lucrative contracts to sell its sports gear, Nike proliferates its worldwide influence during the Olympic Games and promotes the homosexual lifestyle while doing so.

“Nike was the provider of uniforms and products for the Olympic Games in Rio,” 4 WINDS President Steve McConkey informed. “Nike also supports the LGBT agenda, going so far as to have an ad promoting transgenders during the Olympics.”

America’s favorite athletic brand has been promoting its product through the Olympics for many decades and will continue to do so for the upcoming generation of athletes, as well.

“Nike supports USA Track & Field with a 23-year deal worth $500 million,” McConkey, whose Christian pro-family athletic ministry produces BigPlanetWatch.com. “Many complain this deal will basically allow Nike to control USA Track & Field for years.”

In addition to suiting up professional and Olympic athletes, Nike is a major supplier of youth and collegiate athletic apparel and equipment for children’s and young adults’ team sports in the United States, including baseball, football and basketball – furthering its influence for generations to come while it continues to endorse abortion and the LGBT agenda.
