Over the last month, Planned Parenthood has become the target of anti-choice groups like never before. First, heavily edited Live Action films were released that claimed Planned Parenthood employees operated unprofessionally– they actually did everything they were supposed to, but those parts got edited out. Then the House voted on a bill to bar Planned Parenthood from receiving any federal funds, for anything it does. Now Lila Rose, whose life mission is to shut down Planned Parenthood, is launching a bus tour to spread her lies. She is trying to convince the Senate to vote “yes” on HR3 and the Pence Amendment (both of which would make it harder for women to receive the medical care they need). Essentially Rose and other “pro-life” politicians are trying to force an organization, that more than 20% of American women will visit at some point in their lifetime, to close its doors.
To counter act these attacks, Planned Parenthood has launched its own tour. Staff and volunteers will be traveling the North East over the next week spreading the truth about Planned Parenthood in an awesome pink bus. You can keep up with their progress and hear reports from the road on their new blog here. To see if the bus will be stopping in your town click here, or see the list below. We hope to see you out wearing pink and showing support for Planned Parenthood!
