Pro-Abortion Women’s March Leader Behind “Student Led” Parkland Gun Control Protest

The woman behind the probation Women’s March is apparently behind the so-called student-led protest against gun control that is supposedly inspired by the horrific Parkland Florida school shooting.

Although LifeNews does not normally cover gun control news and issues, we do provide comprehensive coverage on pro-life news and topics. And so we are intimately familiar with Deena Katz, the Co executive director of the women’s March La Foundation. The Women’s March was a project of Planned Parenthood and other top pro-abortion organizations that ostensibly promoted abortion along with other political causes.

Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry go to great lengths to push their abortion agenda on young Americans. So it’s no surprise to see Katz involved with leading these so-called student-led protests concerning gun control. What better way to push the abortion agenda than exploiting the horrific shootings?

As the Washington Times reports:

The students billed as leading the gun control charge “from their parents’ living rooms” after last week’s deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, are receiving help from seasoned left-wing activists.

Deena Katz, co-executive director of the Women’s March LA Foundation, submitted the application for a National Park Service permit for the March for Our Lives, the March 24 rally on the National Mall described as a student-led protest.

Women’s March LA spokeswoman Michelle Margolis said Ms. Katz, the Hollywood producer of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” is working on the March For Our Lives in her personal capacity.

“[T]he march is student led and Deena is acting at their behest to help with paperwork, being these logistics are out of their wheelhouse,” Ms. Margolis said in an email. “Also to be clear, Deena is helping as an individual. [T]he women’s march is not associated.”

As far as critics are concerned, there’s quite a bit about the campaign that seems to be outside the wheelhouse of the average high schooler.

Few teens would have the resources and sophistication to pull off a major national protest without the help of experienced political hands, and yet there’s been little or no mention of outside groups as the post-Parkland push for tougher gun laws gains steam.

The news coverage repeatedly has depicted the effort as homegrown, including stories such as the New Yorker magazine’s “How the Survivors of Parkland Began the Never Again Movement” and BuzzFeed’s “Here’s What It’s Like at The Headquarters of the Teens Working to Stop Mass Shootings.”

The National Park Service application submitted by Ms. Katz estimates a crowd of 500,000, which would make it one of the largest events on the Mall, rivaling the Women’s March of January 2017, which drew an estimated half-million.

The Women’s March was mostly about abortion, its organizers admitted:

“First of all, hands off the Affordable Care Act. We need our health insurance,” she began. “Hands off Planned Parenthood and our reproductive rights. Hands off Muslims. Hands off the undocumented. Those are really our top messaging lines.

The Women’s March claimed to stand for all women. But what that really meant was women who agree with its agenda. The group’s convention excluded pro-life and conservative women – including conservative women in the media.

The Women’s March also threw out a center dedicated to helping pregnant women because it was pro-life.
