Join the Protest Planned Parenthood Events Across Florida!
This Saturday, October 10, from 9-11AM local time, pro-life Americans all across the country but specifically in Florida will gather together to protest Planned Parenthood’s barbaric harvesting of aborted baby parts and the even greater crime of the babies killed in the process. Over 250 of these protests have been organized nationwide – including some international protests. 13 of these protests have been planned in cities across Florida.
We need to work together with every other group moving in the right direction in this historic effort to stop this evil in our state and communities. This is a priority issue for FFPC as we are currently also advocating for Gov. Rick Scott to terminate Florida’s Medicaid contracts with Planned Parenthood and Title X funds from Broward and Collier Counties. Video from our recent press conference launching the #FLDefundPP campaign can be viewed here:

For more information about the purpose and goal of these protests, please read the following statement from ProtestPP:
“To build on the impact of the first national day of protest in August and continue building momentum as additional undercover videos are released, there is going to be a second day of protest at Planned Parenthood locations on this Saturday, October 10.
Additionally, here in Florida we are asking Governor Rick Scott to defund PP by terminating there contract with PP and allocate those funds to one of the 600 other qualified health care providers who can provide women’s health services.
Protests were held at more than 340 sites in August. On October 10 we seek to increase that number significantly, bringing peaceful protests to as many of Planned Parenthood’s 700 health centers as possible, especially those that perform abortions.”
