While Planned Parenthood frequently purports to be about "choice," just .03 percent of their services included adoption referrals. The abortion giant is frequently the recipient of lavish media and corporate support, while truly pro-life efforts like adoption get overlooked.

As Live Action News explains, while celebrities are loudly screaming their support for Planned Parenthood and abortion, there are others who are quietly doing the hard work of truly helping vulnerable children, women, and families in need.

And instead of donating to Planned Parenthood like Netflix, Ben and Jerry's, Converse, and many other far-left companies are doing, Wendy's has launched a campaign to donate up to $500,000 toward adoption programs.

Since 1992, fast-food chain Wendy's and its partner, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, has at its heart the interests of children who are in foster care waiting to be adopted. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes and loving families for the nearly 155,000 children waiting in North America's foster care systems.

In fact, when you go into a Wendy's restaurant, you will always see numerous signs, posters and food packaging promoting the adoption of children nationwide through its foundation.

As an adoptee himself, Wendy's founder Dave Thomas always held the cause of adoption close to his heart. He credited his summers in Maine with his grandmother as teaching him the value of hard work and perseverance. He also credited his time eating in local restaurants with his father after his adoptive mother died with making him value restaurants as a place of sharing and family closeness.

These core values led Thomas to found one of the most successful fast food chains in the U.S., and his success in business spurred him on to philanthropic advocacy in founding the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
