Contact: Rev. Patrick Mahoney, 540-538-4741
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- The hearings will be on Wednesday, September 9, at 10:30 A.M. in 2141 of the Rayburn House Office building.
Pro-life life leaders will have a news conference, public witness and prayer vigil at 9:00 A.M. before the hearings begin on Wednesday.
They will be meeting on the corner of Independence Ave. SW and South Capitol St. SE.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense coalition in Washington, D.C., states;
"We applaud the House of Representatives for scheduling these critical hearings into the inner workings of Planned Parenthood. The recently released exposé videos by The Center for Medical Progress reveal what we have known for years about the largest abortion provider in the world.
"That is, Planned Parenthood has no regard for the dignity of human life and treats the women of American like a commodity.
"We encourage Congress not to approve any piece of legislation that would fund Planned Parenthood and would instead give that $520,000,000 of taxpayer money to health centers that truly provide women with quality, professional and compassionate health services."
Michele Hendrickson, Capitol Regional Director for Students for life of America, adds;
"It is time for Planned Parenthood's leaders to be held accountable for their criminal acts and betrayal of women who put their trust in them. Hopefully this investigation will shed light on what we've known for years: Planned Parenthood views women and their preborn children as dollar signs."
