(LifeNews.com) Planned Parenthood is in the news again this week … as the federal investigation into harvesting and trafficking aborted baby body parts heats up.
A recent poll showed that 50% of Americans do not know that Planned Parenthood does abortions. That’s a frustrating statistic, since they are the largest abortion business in the United States. They do more than 325,000 every year!
However, you can do something about that!
Here’s how three 40 Days for Life teams that hold their peaceful vigils outside Planned Parenthood facilities are drawing their communities into the campaign.
“We are off to a great start!” said Monica in Bloomington, Indiana. “We have no reports of babies saved … because we’re not even sure if they did abortions last week!” The business was closed several days.
The Bloomington team did stage a major event outside Planned Parenthood – a Doctors for Life rally. About 200 people attended, Monica said, including “28 local physicians who put their names out there as being pro-life and committed to the protection of the unborn child. What an inspiration these doctors were to all of us!”
Some of the doctors were photographed near a mobile help center that offers free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds.
“As fruit from our 40 Days for Life campaigns, we announced that we are getting our own unit, paid for by a generous donor,” Monica said. “We can’t wait to have it there regularly to help the women going in!”
