Across America Saturday, People Protested Planned Parenthood’s Fetal Body Parts Business

By Kate Scanlon Published on October 12, 2015

Protests outside of Planned Parenthood clinics took place across the nation on Saturday.

Spurred by the recent release of undercover videos of Planned Parenthood executives, a coalition of pro-life groups lead the #ProtestPP events.

David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress, the organization behind the videos, spoke at the event in Orange, Calif.

The videos have raised allegations that the nation’s largest abortion provider is selling aborted fetal body parts to researchers for profit. Trafficking human body parts—including fetal human body parts—is a felony in the United States. Spokespersons for Planned Parenthood have denied illegal conduct.

Eric Scheidler, the executive director of Pro-Life Action League, one of the organizers of the nationwide event, told The Daily Signal that “we had great turnout today.”

“I expect to see an increased pro-life ministry at Planned Parenthood’s abortion clinics for years ahead, thanks to the number of people who have been drawn out to protest at this critical moment,” Scheidler said.

In Manchester, N.H., approximately 45 protestors gathered outside a Planned Parenthood clinic.

Similar protests occurred across the nation.

Some events were met by counter protesters.
