Protest of Fresno Planned Parenthood Set for August 22
Fresno CA – In light of recent revelations of selling aborted baby parts, Right to Life of Central California is calling for a protest at the Fresno Planned Parenthood (PP) abortion clinic on August 22, 2015. The protest will begin at 9am and last until 11am. This effort corresponds with protests taking place at PP abortion facilities all across America as part of the National Protest of Planned Parenthood to raise awareness about PP’s trafficking of aborted baby parts.
Undercover videos (see link below) released by the Center for Medical Progress reveal that several Planned Parenthood abortion clinics, with the sanction of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, may be involved in the harvesting of body parts of unborn children aborted in their facilities and profiting from their sale contrary to Federal laws that prohibit such practices. Moreover, the videos raise many not only legal questions but also several ethical issues, such as the exploitation of the unborn for financial gain and the possible altering of the abortion procedure, not for the benefit of the women, but to enhance the procurement of in-tact specimens. The videos show high-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over pricing of fetal specimens.
As a consequence of this public scandal, several states have initiated investigations of Planned Parenthood and legislation has been introduced in Congress to defund the abortion giant that currently receives 500 million dollars of tax-payer money.
