Locals Protest Planned Parenthood

People are rallying at Planned Parenthood facilities throughout the nation Saturday to protest abortion practices.


A rally outside the downtown Toledo offices of Planned Parenthood attracted about 250 opponents of the organization.

John Shuman said he was praying for those who feel they need to turn to Planned Parenthood.

“We were asked to procure certain tissues, like brain, liver, thymus, pancreas, heart, lungs and pretty much anything on the fetus”, O’Donnell says in the video.

“She told them that she would love us no matter what and I think anyone should be that way”, Boyle, 23, said.

Amy Jacobson, Planned Parenthood North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota advocacy manager, said the protests outside the clinic and office are misguided and meant to intimidate patients.

To further that hope a number of protesters carried signs Saturday encouraging the defunding of Planned Parenthood and chanting “nine months plus”. The Pro-Life Action Team plans to fight Planned Parenthood in schools and also push back against businesses that support the organization, he said. Focaracci said. “They give oral medication”.

Anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress has released a series of videos it says prove Planned Parenthood staff sell fetal material from abortions for profit.

“We definitely want to see Planned Parenthood Federation of America investigated federally and defunded federally”, Jeanette Burdell, Executive Director for St. Joseph County Right to Life said.

Its website offers a variety of services, including abortion.

Bruce Rigby, who organized the Salt Lake City protest, said that prior to the recent outcry regarding Planned Parenthood, he had “no idea abortions were taking place in Utah – not in my state“.

Locals joined a national effort to expose a almost century old organization. “God developed this baby with no amniotic fluid in my body”.

“We can understand why they wouldn’t want to watch”, concluded the governor.

“This group of people are good and polite, but just passionate about ending abortion”, said Anne Nallampalli, a protester visiting from Pittsburgh.


Mr. Koon, who called the undercover videos “absurdly hacked”, said he is seeking honesty and free health care for all, which would include abortion. Now, Planned Parenthood has filed suit, claiming that the state is trying to redefine what a trimester is.
