Anti Abortion Protestors Want to Be Heard Loud And Clear. Thousands took to the streets in cities across the U.S. in pro and anti-abortion rallies to voice their opinion on abortion and whether Planned Parenthood should receive federal money.
With organizers expecting protests at up to 225 clinics nationwide, Planned Parenthood supporters in turn organized 150 counter-demonstrations at sites such as city parks, politicians’ offices and government buildings.
Supporters also showed up at some clinics where the anti-abortion demonstrations were being staged, and in some cases, outnumbered those who were protesting against federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
In Washington, demonstrators carried a banner that read: “The butchering and selling of the parts of unborn babies by Planned Parenthood is a heinous sin,” while about 100 counter-demonstrators chanted: “Women must decide their fate.”
