Pro And Anti Planned-Parenthood Protests Planned For Saturday

  • About 30 anti-abortion protesters gathered outside Planned Parenthood's Congress Street office in Portland on Saturday to call for federal defunding of the reproductive health organization

It, however, would allow states to use Title X money for "other community health centers and hospitals that offer more comprehensive service", he said. This is one of 244 planned rallies nationwide to oppose women's right to choose as well as opposing women's reproductive healthcare and all the other free services Planned Parenthood provides.

"How do they keep on slaughtering little ones, and yet portray themselves as health clinics?" he asked.

Graham ended his post by urging conservative lawmakers in Congress, both Democratic and Republican, to "stand together to do the right thing and end this wholesale slaughter of innocent life". They are truly the neediest among us.

Meanwhile, a counter protest is planned to show solidarity with Planned Parenthood, organized by the International Socialist Organization of Northern California, and over a thousand people have expressed interest on Facebook, with 270 saying they're going as of now.

"The time has come to defund America's abortion giant!" the website says. "It's about taking tax dollars away from the nation's largest abortion chain".

Anti-abortion activists are expected to gather in front the Planned Parenthood office in Northeast Portland on Saturday morning, part of a larger national demonstration calling for an end to the organization's federal funding.

Planned Parenthood is not advocating for the rally, Samuelson said.

The House of Representatives will vote next week to repeal a last-minute executive order by former President Barack Obama that provided federal funding to Planned Parenthood.
