WASHINGTON, July 14, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Activists to hold news conference and demonstration in front of the Longworth House Office Building at 9 Independence Ave. SE in Washington, D.C.
The news conference will be on Wednesday, July, 15 at 10:00 A.M. on the Independence Ave. SE side of Longworth.
The groups will then go to Speaker of the House John Boehner's office to call for Congressional hearings into this horrific practice of trafficking baby body parts.
Calls for Congressional hearings and the defunding of Planned Parenthood come after Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, is seen on video describing the practice of trafficking in aborted baby body parts.
The video is part of a nearly 3 year long investigative journalistic study conducted by The Center for Medical Progress.

Mark Harrington, National Director of Created Equal, states;
"These grisly revelations of Planned Parenthood's baby parts business has made ending their organization's tax funding even more urgent. Americans are outraged. Congress needs to end this madness once and for all!"
Ashley Baldwin, Spokesperson for Survivors, comments;
"As if it isn't enough that Planned Parenthood has killed millions of my generation, imagine my heartbreak when I found out they sold aborted baby body parts like a custom order from a meat market!
"It is now time for Congress to defund Planned Parenthood."
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, adds;
"It is difficult to believe that the American taxpayer gives Planned Parenthood $540,000,000 of our money annually. That is troubling enough when you realize Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the world performing over 330,000 here in America alone.
"However, when you consider they are now engaged in the barbaric practice of illegally trafficking aborted baby parts, the time has now come for Congress to defund this corrupt organization.
"Planned Parenthood was founded by a racist and KKK supporter who wanted to reduce the number of African-Americans and other persons of color. Our hope and prayer is that Congress will move quickly to defund Planned Parenthood and it will end up on the scrapheap of history like slavery and segregation."
Participating groups include Created Equal, the Christian Defense Coalition, Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust and Operation Rescue.
