As you may know, on January 22nd we celebrate Sanctity of Life Sunday. Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God’s gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protecting human life at every stage.
Even if you are pro-life and go out of your way to support crisis pregnancy centers, you may be supporting the abortion industry without even knowing it. Many people who are very careful about their spending and charitable donations never think about the companies they are investing in through their IRAs, 401(k)’s and investment accounts.
The goal of Biblically Responsible Investing is to screen out those companies that are involved in the abortion industry: hospitals, insurance companies, abortifacient drug manufacturers, and companies that contribute to Planned Parenthood (the largest provider of abortions in the U.S).
At Beacon Wealth, we work with clients and financial advisors to screen these companies with the goal of removing them from your investment portfolios. If you are concerned because you don’t currently know what you are investing in, we offer a complimentary screening service to show you exactly what business practices you are supporting with the money God has blessed you with.
We have a vision that if all Christians came together and stopped supporting these companies, we could put Planned Parenthood out of business. That is something we will be praying for as we celebrate this Sanctity of Life Sunday!
