Chicago, Ill – Oct.7-10, 2015 - On Saturday, Oct.10th nearly 300 public protests of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics and facilities will take place all over the United States. These demonstrations, all taking place on the same day, all focused on Planned Parenthood facilities is the second such nationwide protests to take place in recent weeks. The first occurred August 22 and attracted 78,000 participants all over the United States—making that an unprecedented public demonstration in the history of legalized abortion. 
The Oct. 10th protests will continue to raise public awareness that Planned Parenthood not only kills unborn children, but harvests and traffics in aborted baby body parts—and call upon Congress to defund the abortion giant. This summer a scandal erupted regarding the barbaric practice of abortion and the sale of aborted baby body parts—due to undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. They were produced by 27-year-old David Daleiden, who, in a stealth sting operation, recorded high-level Planned Parenthood executives discussing the violent nature of abortion procedures and the securing of aborted baby body parts in chilling, graphic detail.  
The videos have prompted Congressional debate on defunding Planned Parenthood which receives over $500,000 federal tax-payer money, and several states taking action to defund the group. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, was called to congressional hearings and felt the need, after the first CMP video was released, to deny that her group broke any laws, but publicly apologized for the cavalier “tone” of PP executive Dr. Deborah Nucatola, regarding how she discussed aborting unborn children.

The undercover videos show Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the sale price of aborted baby body parts and some reveal Planned Parenthood techs rummaging through the actual dismembered pieces of unborn children fresh from abortion procedures to identify body parts that can be sold. 
Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in America, (performing over 300,000 abortions per year) but it only come to light this summer that the abortion giant may be involved in the illegal and unethical sale of aborted baby body parts. Monica M. Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society comments: "When PP technicians are scavenging through the body parts of aborted babies to find tissue that they hope to sell, this adds a whole new gruesome and ghoulish layer to the already highly controversial practice of abortion in America. It's bad enough that Planned Parenthood is profiting from abortions—but on top of that they exploit the bodies of their murder victims for additional revenue.  Even their own abortionist in the fourth CMP video referred to the broken bodies of the unborn as "war torn."  It is the abortion providers themselves who describe what they do as violence."
ProtestPP is a coalition of over 50 pro-life groups whose goal is to raise awareness of the heartless and even illegal activities of Planned Parenthood by going to where the killing and harvesting of body parts from aborted children takes place. Creating a presence at neighborhood Planned Parenthood facilities is essential to inform the public about what is going on behind closed doors. 
In the entire history of legalized abortion, Planned Parenthood has never faced such media scrutiny and public criticism of its abortion practice and the possibility of losing multi-million dollars in federal funding. 
Mark Harrington of Created Equal states:
“All politics are local. We cannot only look to Washington, DC and our state governments to solve this problem. Each community with a Planned Parenthoods abortion clinic or satellite clinic needs to take action against the killing of babies and the trafficking of their aborted baby parts. It’s past time for stop Planned Parenthood once and for all!”
Eric Scheidler of the Pro-life Action League states: "These videos are exposing the American people to the truth about Planned Parenthood and the truth about abortion. How can you deny the humanity of a tiny person whose body parts are being harvested for medical use? Worse yet, how can you make jokes about it, like the Planned Parenthood doctors do in these videos? It's time to cease all taxpayer funding of this corrupt organization."
