Nationwide Rallies Call to Defund Planned Parenthood

SHAWN CARNEY, CHRISTIAN NEWSWIRE

As Congress moves forward with plans to reallocate funding from Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion business, to comprehensive health care centers, citizens across America will speak up in support of the action. Saturday, Feb. 11, groups will gather outside over 200 Planned Parenthood facilities in 44 states and the nation’s capital to #ProtestPP. There will also be overseas support with a demonstration at the London headquarters of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which was recently defunded by executive order.

“Planned Parenthood’s brand is at an all-time low, and their leadership reflects how disconnected they are from science and basic American values. This weekend, thousands of Americans will stand in peaceful opposition to send a message that abortion is not health care and, as the nation’s largest abortion operation, Planned Parenthood should not get $1 of taxpayer money, much less $430 million,” said Shawn Carney, President, 40 Days for Life.

“The federal government has been subsidizing Planned Parenthood to the tune of more than $430 million annually,” explained Carney. “This, at the same time that the nation’s largest abortion provider holds $500 ticket fundraisers and charges a woman about $500 to abort her baby,” he continued. “On top of that, after Planned Parenthood’s baby body part trafficking scandal, taxpayers are sickened to see their money spent in support of these atrocities.”
