Planned Parenthood videos spur 200 rallies nationwide to defund abortion provider

Spurred by a series of undercover videos exposing the harvesting and distribution of post-abortive fetal body parts, pro-life activists are organizing more than 200 rallies at Planned Parenthood clinics and a coast-to-coast effort to reach members of Congress at their home offices this week.

“This is really unprecedented in the history of legalized abortion — on the same day, over 200 public demonstrations against the killing of unborn children, all aimed at Planned Parenthood,” said Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-life Society, one of the lead organizers for the Aug. 22 rallies.

    Since no tax money goes to funding abortions and 97% of the services
    they provide is not abortions isn’t the defunding government overreach, the government telling you what doctor you can or can’t use. Isn’t that one of the things they don’t like about the ACA. Now it’s going to be the republicans that take away your doctor. You are free to pick your doctor as long as you pick one they like.

      bobnstuff … PP gets more than $250,000,000 of taxpayer’s money. If they spend that money on all their ‘other services’ they are then free to use ‘their monies’ for the killing of unborn children. If they didn’t have the money from the taxpayers …. geez, they’d have to spend ‘their monies’ on the puny number of ‘other services’ they provide, which are precious few. The 97% is a fake number. Where have you been lately? Head in the sand maybe?

        Did you know that less then 1/4 of the PP clinics do abortions and that most abortions are done in hospitals. Of the 686 places you can get an abortion only 156 are run by PP. 83% of abortions are done in hospitals. Only 40% of PP budget come from the government. I find the lack of facts in this argument amazing.
