Following a historic month of rallies and protests against Planned Parenthood stemming from undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress showing Planned Parenthood abortionists haggling over the price of aborted baby parts and skirting abortion laws, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and Pro-Life Future (PLF) will host a #WomenBetrayed rally and press conference in Washington, DC on Thursday, September 10th to urge Congress to defund the abortion giant in this year’s budget.
“Planned Parenthood’s back is up against the wall as they have been struggling to explain how they aren’t profiting off of selling the body parts of the babies they abort every day,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America. “Pro-life groups have been trying to defund Planned Parenthood of taxpayer dollars for years. This year, Republican leadership can make sure it happens.”
The #WomenBetrayed rally will feature GOP presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul (R-KY). It will also highlight several women who have gone to Planned Parenthood for healthcare services and had horrible experiences. SFLA and PLF are partnering with former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson and her ministry, And Then There Were None, to expose the abortion giant and their mistreatment of women and the dismembering of their babies.
More speakers will be announced as the date gets closer.
“Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion a year from taxpayers. Congress must pass a budget that strikes their funding and send the bill to President Obama,” said Brendan O’Morchoe, Director of Pro-Life Future. “Planned Parenthood’s entire business model is built on selling out women and their preborn babies for profit. They treat women horribly, and we plan to make sure that Congress hears from these women.”
Following the rally, participants will be lobbying their Members of Congress to pass a budget which does not fund Planned Parenthood.
