When David Hogg organized a die-in at a Publix supermarket over their donations to an NRA-supported candidate, he caused them to cancel all political donations — including to organizations that fund Planned Parenthood.
Publix issued a statement on Friday saying that it will “suspend corporate-funded political contributions as we reevaluate our giving processes.”
Twitter users quickly found a list of the causes that Publix had been supporting — and the Democratic Party can’t be happy about it.
David, I’m very pleased you have stopped Publix donations going to Planned Parenthood. You did women and unborn babies a great service 🙏🏼 https://t.co/touXVy5lAq

Publix was contributing to the YMCA, who is a member of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the YWCA who supports LGBT causes, United Way chapters that have funded Planned Parenthood, as well as March of Dimes and Susan G. Koman — both of which continue to fund the controversial clinics.
