290 Demonstrations to be Held on Saturday, August 22, 2015
|Washington, D.C – As more undercover “sting” videos are released and continue to reveal the heartbreaking and abhorrent activity of Planned Parenthood, Americans are joining en force to protest the nation’s largest abortion provider. The March for Life Education and Defense Fund joins such groups as Pro-life Action League, 40 Days for Life and Created Equal this Saturday in 290 rallies to raise local and national awareness and demand action against, and defunding of, Planned Parenthood.
“Over the past few weeks Americans on both sides of the political aisle have been have been shocked as they have watched one video after the other of Planned Parenthood officials exploiting the dignity of the human person — both mother and baby,” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “The undercover videos have revealed how the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is harvesting and trafficking little hearts, livers, lungs of aborted children. Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars in taxpayer funds every year, while taking the lives of 300 preborn babies every day and we are joining together with other pro-life organizations to raise awareness and demand action against, and defunding of, the group.”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
