Pro-life Americans nationwide took to the streets on Saturday to call on Congress to defund the abortion and contraception giant Planned Parenthood.
Demonstrations took place in a reported 45 states and at over 200 Planned Parenthood locations, from California to Alabama, to New York and Florida, with some gatherings drawing dozens and others drawing hundreds.
In Albuquerque, New Mexico, an estimated 300 residents participated in the event, 200 joined the protest in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and in Peoria, Illinois approximately 70 people took to the streets to speak out against the abortion giant.
The event was organized by three pro-life entities: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal and the Pro-Life Action League.
“As long as they are going stay in the abortion business, that is an organization that shouldn’t be getting one red cent of federal tax money,” Monica Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, told Reuters.Participants gathered at their local Planned Parenthood and held signs expressing their opposition to taxpayer money being distributed to the controversial organization, such as “Defund Planned Parenthood,” “Stop abortion now” and “Abortion is not health care.”
