Planned Parenthood Under Fire
For a long time, pro-lifers have been working to spread the truth about Planned Parenthood. With the release of undercover videos gruesomely picturing the organization’s top staff involved in the harvesting of fetal body parts, pressure to discredit and defund Planned Parenthood has gained momentum, and more and more Americans are waking up to the truth about the nation’s largest abortion provider.
>>> Read the March for Life’s background paper on the history of Planned Parenthood.
Several Governors have taken action to defund Planned Parenthood in their states, and the House of Representatives has held a handful of votes on various pieces of legislation to do the same, although the bills have been stalled in the Senate. Additionally, several committees have launched investigations into Planned Parenthood, and the battle is not yet over.
Here at the March for Life, our President and Vice President have been active in these efforts on Capitol Hill and in the media. Additionally, on social media we have been engaged in helping others know the data and facts about Planned Parenthood. Recently, we shared a piece by our President Jeanne Mancini on the racist history of Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, and it was shared over 28,000 times from the Daily Signal!
We also want to share with you an in-depth policy piece on Planned Parenthood written by Jeanne for the Capital Research Center. This policy piece details the history, activities, key personnel, and legal battles of Planned Parenthood, as well as the pro-life movements efforts to defund the abortion giant and support true, life-affirming healthcare for women.
We know that the truth is on our side, and it’s important to be armed with the facts to counter the countless falsehoods being spread. Please read and share, “Planned Parenthood Under Fire”, and join us in spreading the truth!
