Protest Planned Parenthood Rally

The time has come to defund America’s abortion giant!

On April 28, #DefundPP will conduct the second annual National Day of Prayer and Protest against Planned Parenthood.

This rally is a sign to our leaders in Washington to defund Planned Parenthood and to redirect all their federal taxpayer funding to comprehensive health centers that are not involved in abortion.

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain, killing more than 320,000 babies each year, and nearly half of their billion dollar budget comes from our tax dollars.

Sadly, the Planned Parenthood location on Cherry Street now offers chemical (RU-486) abortions.

Here are four key reasons to defund Planned Parenthood:

  • PP is the nation’s largest abortion chain.
    • 34% of all U.S. abortions are done by PP.
    • PP takes in an estimated $191,000,000 from abortions annually, accounting for 60% of their clinic income.
  • PP is a bad actor and a lightning rod of controversy.
    • PP has been caught shielding child predators, lying about what services that provide, submitting fraudulent Medicaid claims, and harvesting and selling aborted baby body parts.
  • PP exaggerates their role in providing health care to women.
    • PP provides less than 2% of manual breast exams, less than 1% of pap tests, and 0% of mammograms annually.
  • Defunding PP would not reduce funding for women’s health.
    • Every dollar taken from PP would be redirected to Federally Qualified Health Centers that don’t provide abortions.
As the nation’s largest abortion chain with a long record of unethical activity, Planned Parenthood does not deserve our tax dollars.
