Rosaries in hand, Morristown crowd rallies to defund Planned Parenthood

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and US President Donald Trump speak at Trump's Mar-a Lago resort in Palm Beach after North Korea reportedly fired a ballistic missile

But we also have a choice and we also have a right to say we don't believe in what they do and so I don't think that our tax dollars should be forced to go to something that we don't believe in. "People around here probably don't even realize Planned Parenthood is here".

In several cities across the United States, counter-protests in support of Planned Parenthood were staged in city parks and outside government buildings, according to Reuters reports. Planned Parenthood in MI has a budget of a little over 20 million dollars, if defunding did occur on a federal level, this organization would be losing 7 million dollars annually.

It isn't just about abortion, that's a very small part of what Planned Parenthood does.

Meanwhile, supporters of Planned Parenthood are rallying to show solidarity for the nonprofit organization, which provides a variety of reproductive health services in addition to abortion. "I just want our leadership to know that a lot of people support Planned Parenthood".

Instead, the couple said they would rather see money go towards other organizations that don't provide abortion services including Federally Qualified Health Centers. Rallies aimed at urging Congress and President Donald Trump to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood are scheduled across the country.

The words "We love you and your baby", written in marker in a child's handwriting next to a colored-in heart, were among the messages greeting drivers as they passed Planned Parenthood in Des Moines Saturday morning.

"I came to realize that what's really most important to Planned Parenthood is their bottom line".

Planned Parenthood is a profit-driven, abortion-centered business that has performed more than 300,000 abortions in the last three years for which data are available.

"The people who are protesting are really missing the point", Dr. Carrie Pierce, an abortion provider based in rural OR, told Newsweek.

The Obama administration rule was finalized by the Department of Health and Human Services in December, prohibiting states from withholding federal grants to the women's health organization.

Prey argues that Planned Parenthood helps to prevent abortions through education and birth control. For the February 11 rally, 40 Days for Life is also serving as a major partner.

"I feel like we got sort of complacent and comfortable with the status quo and didn't realize how quickly things can change and didn't realize how many things can be at threat if we don't participate", Caudill said.
