CHICAGO, Aug. 20, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Saturday, August 22 public protests of Planned Parenthood (PP) abortion clinics and facilities will take place all over the United States. Thousands are expected to attend these protests with the purpose of creating awareness of the barbaric practice of abortion and the sale of aborted baby body parts -- a scandal that has erupted in recent weeks due to undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. Currently, there are over 300 cities in 47 states and 5 countries represented in the nationwide protest.

Radical pro-abortion groups have organized counter protests in several cities. "We are going to be out there … it's up to us to make a big noise," Sunsara Taylor, founder of StopPatriarchy.org, said recently in the Washington Times.
Recently released videos have shown the results of Planned Parenthood's barbarous trade of killing babies and harvesting and selling their body parts.
Mark Harrington, Created Equal's National Director:
"We don't just want to defund Planned Parenthood; we want to defeat Planned Parenthood. We cannot only look to Washington, DC and our state governments to end the killing. It is up to each of us individually to take ownership over our own neighborhoods to stop Planned Parenthood and end abortion altogether."
#ProtestPP is the largest demonstration against Planned Parenthood in their 99 year history.
Eric Scheidler of Pro-Life Action League:
"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."
#ProtestPP involves prayer, speakers and holding signs that read #PPSellSBabyParts.
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. It is the abortion providers themselves who describe what they do as violence."
