Rallies Planned to Defund Planned Parenthood
#ProtestPP, a coalition of state and national pro-life groups, has released a planned schedule of events in protest of Planned Parenthood for next month.
On Feb. 11, rallies will be held at Planned Parenthood locations throughout the U.S. to call on Congress and President Donald Trump to strip the resource centers of all federal funding, #ProtestPP’s website states.
“The time has come to defund America’s abortion giant! Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain, killing over 300,000 babies each year and nearly half of their billion dollar budget comes from tax dollars,” a call to action on the website states.
In 2015, the House of Representatives passed the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015, one that prohibited the availability of funds for any purpose to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. and its affiliates. The bill, sponsored by Congresswoman Diane Black (R-TN-06), was reintroduced earlier this month.
So far, according to the website, 86 rallies are scheduled in 34 states.
