Taking the pro-life conversation to the streets
The Center for Medical Progress’ undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby part harvesting operation have dramatically changed the national conversation on the sanctity of life.
In addition to prompting serious soul-searching among life-long pro-abortion believers, CMP’s videos have galvanized the pro-life movement.
On August 22, pro-lifers will attend rallies at Planned Parenthood clinics in 180 cities across 43 states. Backed by a massive pro-life coalition, #ProtestPP‘s mission is simple:
ProtestPP is a coalition of pro-life groups calling for a National Day of Protest on August 22, 2015 at Planned Parenthood facilities all across America. Our goal is to raise awareness of the heartless and even illegal activities of Planned Parenthood by going to where the killing and harvesting of body parts from aborted children takes place. The four main sponsors are: Created Equal, the Pro-Life Action League, 40 Days for Life, and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society.
Creating a presence at neighborhood Planned Parenthood facilities is essential to inform the public about what is going on behind closed doors. Local sidewalk counselors and activists are a key component to shutting down Planned Parenthood in the long term.
The National Day of Protest will strengthen local efforts by raising their profile with the local press, the community and other pro-life activists. Together, the protests held on August 22 will put pressure on the media, both local and national, to report the truth about Planned Parenthood, and on government officials to stop funding this discredited organization.
According to Steven Ertelt at Life News:
Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, one of the protest event sponsors, says the level of outrage directed towards Planned Parenthood after this body parts scandal is bigger than she’s ever seen.
“Never before in the history of legalized abortion has the unethical, unjust, violent and hideous world of Planned Parenthood been so graphically exposed,” she said. “I am of course talking about the Center for Medical Progress undercover videos—four of which have been released—that show high level Planned Parenthood executives and abortion providers haggling over the sale price of aborted baby parts.”
