While I know the majority of this generation is against abortion and now, in light of the latest #PPSellsBabyParts scandal, view Planned Parenthood’s business practices unfavorably, there are some that we just can’t reach with our message of truth and love.
And yesterday at the University of Pittsburgh during our “Don’t Fund Planned Parenthood” Bus Tour, I was sadly reminded of this.
Our big pink bus rolled into campus pretty early in the morning as we got there to set up our cross display. Everything was running smoothly with students coming up to us, asking questions, taking our educational postcards, etc.
Then, the protesters descended upon us.
First, some tried to stand in the street to block our bus so it couldn’t move.
Then they made their own home-made signs, some saying “Anti-Choice? F*%k off” or just showing a big question mark. And of course that lead to the verbal insults, which were mostly just curse words and middle fingers, and the yelling. They called us homophobes, racists, and bigots.
One protester walked right up to our sign that explains how Planned Parenthood sells baby parts and wrote a big “X” through it.
But what I didn’t expect was when one of the female protesters started to rub her behind on signs in a movement made popular by pop-culture icon, Miley Cyrus, called “twerking.” When one of our male team members asked her to stop rubbing on our property, she “twerked” on him.
It was utter ridiculousness and just shows how desperate these pro-abortion protesters were.
They were angered so much by our display that they didn’t know what to do. This caused them to act like buffoons.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time we’ve witnessed this sort of crazed behavior on campuses, and it won’t be our last.
As we continue to win over more and more from this generation, there will be hold outs until the bitter end. In fact, I actually expect their behavior to become even more obscene in the coming years.
But what bothers me the most is that these young women and young men (who were the majority of protestors) are being lied to. They are being preyed upon and used by Planned Parenthood, who feed them lies in order to keep padding their dirty pockets.
And some of this generation are falling for it. And they refuse to even consider an alternative.
When our team members asked the protesters yesterday if they had watched the Center for Medical Progress videos, they said they refused to watch them because they were “deceptively edited.”

When we told them that an independent forensic analysis has shown that they aren’t misleading, they refused to even read the article.
They don’t want to hear the truth. They don’t want to be faced with it.
Please keep our team in your prayers as we just pulled into the Ohio State University for our event today. Over the next 8 weeks, our team will travel more than 16,000 miles to visit more than 80 campuses in 25 states.
In fact, they only give our team more motivation to continue the late nights and early mornings because we know we’ve got to continue reaching this generation.
Whether they want to hear it or not, students need to know Planned Parenthood’s create-a-customer business model is targeting them and making money off of their crisis. And we’ve got to continue speaking truth and putting pressure on our elected officials until that day when Planned Parenthood is no more.
