Thousands of pro-life activists participated in rallies in more than 60 cities and towns around the country Tuesday, where they demanded that Congress defund Planned Parenthood.
Organized by Students for Life of American (SFLA) and its sister organization, Pro-Life Future, the rallies were a response to videos that show senior Planned Parenthood officials admitting the organization harvests and sells body parts from aborted babies.
“We are very conservatively estimating 13,000 participating at all 65 cities with two confirmed babies saved so far!” SFLA president Kristan Hawkins told LifeSiteNews. “Hundreds are showing up at each event and the grassroots are on fire. Every news outlet was at the DC rally, and we are seeing articles in the media from nearly every rally.
“It’s been an incredible day uncovering the truth about Planned Parenthood and making sure all Americans know what goes on behind closed door and how the abortion giant makes money off of women in their times of crisis.”
A rally near the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C., drew more than 500 people and three Republican presidential candidates — Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, and Dr. Ben Carson. More than a dozen Members of Congress and outside organizations were represented at the rally. Read the rest at LifeSiteNews
