Second protest of Planned Parenthood set for Des Moines

On Aug. 22, more than 78,000 people attended protests at more than 300 Planned Parenthood centers, protesting that organization’s practice of harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted children, as revealed in a series of undercover videos released over the past three months. Saturday, Oct. 10, the #ProtestPP coalition will again bring protests to hundreds of Planned Parenthood locations, including their center at 1000 E Army Post Road in Des Moines.

Despite the controversy created by the undercover videos — including possible illegal activity — Planned Parenthood continues to receive more than $500 million from state and federal governments. The organizers of #ProtestPP are calling for an end to this massive taxpayer subsidy for the nation’s largest abortion chain, and calling on all Americans of good will to oppose Planned Parenthood, especially by joining the growing pro-life presence at their hundreds of centers around the country.

CMP Video 7“These undercover videos have shown the cruelty of abortion in a singular way,” Kelsey Kurtinitis of Personhood Iowa said. “It’s chilling to see Planned Parenthood’s doctors talk about how to crush an unborn child’s body in order to maximize profits from tissue sales. But too few of our fellow Americans have seen these videos. Our protest will invite everyone to learn the truth about Planned Parenthood, and to recognize that this injustice is taking place right here, in our own community.”

#ProtestPP is a coalition of state and national pro-life groups, headed by three national pro-life activist organizations: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, and the Pro-Life Action League. For more information, contact Kurtinitis at (515) 490-9435 or at
