Thousands Protest At Planned Parenthood Locations Nationwide

Thousands protested outside of Planned Parenthood locations across the country Saturday morning to support Republican-led efforts to defund the nation’s largest abortion provider.

In Washington DC, roughly 50 protestors gathered in front of the Supreme Court, then marched over to the new Planned Parenthood clinic on 4th Street in the northeast quadrant of the nation’s capitol.

While en route to the clinic, pro-abortion activists walked alongside the pro-life marchers and chanted: “Pro-life is a lie, you don’t care if women die.”

Some ran in front of the pro-life marchers and attempted to block their path to the clinic. They tried to block police and police cars, but police officers shoved them aside to clear the road.

When the marchers got close to the clinic, the pro-abortion crowd hung back a block away. A man with a bullhorn who had encouraged others in pussy hats to block the march explained this was because Planned Parenthood had asked them to not get close to the clinic.

Pro-lifers prayed outside of the clinic, and several shared their personal stories with the group.

Planned Parenthood is currently embroiled in a battle to continue receiving nearly $500 million each year in taxpayer funds and is claiming to provide services other than abortion. The country’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood recently scrubbed references to prenatal care from their website after new videos showed that most locations do not offer such services.

Last year, Planned Parenthood provided 30 percent of all abortions in the United States, totaling more than 330,000 unborn babies killed in utero, and provided less than 2 percent of breast exams and pap tests.
