Women speak out: defund Planned Parenthood bus tour launch!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lila Rose And Pro-Life Women Speak Out To Defund Planned Parenthood

Contact: Kate Bryan, [email protected], (323) 454-3304

DES MOINES, March 7 ─ Today, Live Action and the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) launch a 4-day, 13-district “Women Speak Out: Defund Planned Parenthood” bus tour. Led by Live Action president Lila Rose and former Colorado Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, the tour will include press conferences and rallies in 13 congressional districts. Each stop features local pro-life leaders thanking Members who voted for Rep. Mike Pence’s amendment to defund Planned Parenthood of its over $300 million in federal funding and targeting Members who voted against it.

The tour will make 11 stops, covering 13 districts across Iowa, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Rhode Island and New Hampshire from Monday, March 7 to Thursday, March 10.  Press conferences and rallies at each stop will highlight grassroots support for stripping taxpayer subsidies from Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion chain. The tour schedule is available at: www.sba-list.org/DefundTour.

“Planned Parenthood is a corrupt organization that aids and abets the sex trafficking of minor girls,” says Rose.  “A vote to funnel federal dollars into the nation’s biggest abortion business is a vote to make taxpayers accomplices in the exploitation of women and children, even at a time when our country is broke. We commend our Representatives who have voted to defund Planned Parenthood of its taxpayer subsidies–now they must stand strong and hold the line in negotiations with the Senate. American taxpayers and American women don’t want to subsidize abortion or those who aid and abet the victimization of young girls.”

Live Action is the youth-led pro-life organization responsible for recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood staff from management on down willing to aid and abet the sex trafficking of minor girls in New Jersey, Virginia, New York, and Washington, D.C.. Over the past 4 years, Live Action has also recorded videos showing Planned Parenthood clinics agreeing to cover up statutory rape and manipulating women during counseling with medical misinformation to choose abortions.
