We cannot sit idly by while a company like PayPal supports laws that punishes a state like North Carolina for protecting women and children.
- AFA Sr. VP Buddy Smith
This week, the American Family Association canceled all use of PayPal payment services.
Our decision comes after PayPal announced last week it was, in essence, threatening the state of North Carolina, which recently passed a law that would require people to use the bathroom of the gender assigned on their birth certificate. Read AFA's press release here.
Shortly after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed HB2, PayPal announced it was pulling plans to open a new global operations center in Charlotte, which would have created 400 new jobs with an investment of $3.6 million in the area.
In response, we have canceled our use of PayPal and encourage you to do the same.
As a pro-family organization that continually works to strengthen and protect families across America, we cannot sit idly by while a company like PayPal supports laws that punishes a state like North Carolina for protecting women and children.
AFA continues to support the North Carolina law, and other similar laws, that protect women and children by preventing them from being left vulnerable to predators. The bullying by PayPal over common sense legislation is reason enough to cancel their services.
