Last week On Groups held a passionate press conference at the entrance to the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington DC to discuss the defunding of Planned Parenthood. The event was immediately followed by a prayer session outside the office of Majority Leader McConnell.
Activists plan to announce a major national campaign calling the pro-life community to come to Washington, D.C. engaging in public events should the Senate fail to defund Planned Parenthood.
The name of the campaign is “Justice Delayed/Justice Denied.”
Lauren Handy, Founder of Mercy Missions based in Washington, D.C., states;
“With Planned Parenthood patient numbers and cancer screenings both down, and their abortion numbers and taxpayer funding up, defunding is not just pro-life, but also sound fiscal policy. We at Americans United for Life will continue to work with legislators who use our model bills to craft a future where everyone is welcomed in life and protected in law.”
“The Senate voting to defund Planned Parenthood is a major step toward replacing them with clinics that provide comprehensive health care for women and ensure equality and rights for all.”
“The pro-life community will work passionately to see the Senate votes to defund Planned Parenthood, and that this piece of legislation will end up on the desk of President Trump and be signed into law. Our hope and prayer is that the Healthcare legislation the Senate puts forward will remove the over $550,000,000 of taxpayer funding Planned Parenthood receives every year.
“If the Senate chooses to ignore the people who helped give them a majority and the over 329,000 innocent children who die at Planned Parenthood clinics every year, then we will give a national call for the pro-life community to come to Washington, D.C. and be a voice for the ‘voiceless.’
“We will not rest until abortion ends up on the scrap heap of history like slavery and segregation. We can never be indifferent or silent.”
