Tens of thousands of pro-life advocates are expected to protest at over 300 Planned Parenthood abortion business locations tomorrow in response to Planned Parenthood selling aborted babies and their body parts. After seven shocking videos catch top Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners arranging to sell aborted babies — and even dissecting one live baby — millions of pro-life people are up in arms.
Currently, there are over 300 cities in 47 states and 5 countries represented in the nationwide protest.
Organizers of the protests say they are the outgrowth of recently released Planned Parenthood expose videos showing the abortion company trafficking in aborted baby body parts and showing a complete disregard for women and unborn children.
Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League told LifeNews: “These videos are exposing the American people to the truth about Planned Parenthood and the truth about abortion. How can you deny the humanity of a tiny person whose body parts are being harvested for medical use? Worse yet, how can you make jokes about it, like the Planned Parenthood doctors do in these videos? It’s time to cease all taxpayer funding of this corrupt organization.”
Mark Harrington, Created Equal’s National Director, added:
“It’s critical that we keep the heat on the abortion industry – and especially on the nation’s largest abortion provider,” adds Troy Newman of Operation Rescue.

“The media is finally starting to pay attention to the atrocities that Planned Parenthood has made a central part of their business model. They are too horrific and gruesome to ignore,” he told LifeNews. “That’s why this weekend is absolutely critical to our plans to ultimately shut down Planned Parenthood altogether. We need to show the politicians that the American people are waking up. They are seeing exactly what happens in these Planned Parenthood houses of horror, and they want it stopped.”
Priests for Life is one of the national co-sponsoring groups organizing and promoting rallies against Planned Parenthood across the country on Saturday, August 22, and on the same day, will launch a national week of prayer and fasting to end abortion and the evils of Planned Parenthood.
“At various key moments in our struggle against abortion, something happens that gives the American public a chance to see abortion — and the abortion industry — for what they are. The veil is lifted off of the corruption and horror of these atrocities, which continue not because the American people support them but because abortion industry hides them,” said Father Pavone.
He added: ““Now, with the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood, many realize for the first time that abortion is not the serene and innocuous thing that slogans made them think it was, and that Planned Parenthood is not the caring, service-oriented organization that its marketing masters make the public think it is. We are in a brief window of opportunity now to rouse ourselves and our fellow citizens to action.”
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition,told LifeNews: “The expose videos of Planned Parenthood reveal in their own words and actions what we have known about them for years. That is, they have no regard for the dignity of innocent children or their mothers.”
“Words cannot express the shock and sadness one feels when they see Planned Parenthood’s Senior Medical Director sipping wine and chomping on her salad while she discusses how to get more livers from aborted babies,” he added. “It is clear, that if we want to be a truly caring and compassionate society, we must defund Planned Parenthood and end the violence of abortion in our nation. Our prayer is that one day abortion will end up on the scrapheap of history like segregation and slavery and that, as a people, America will embrace the ideals of justice and equality for all.”
