On Tuesday pro-lifers in more than 50 cities – and counting – will be rallying against Planned Parenthood under the banner of #WomenBetrayed in response to the gruesome undercover investigative videos released by the Center for Medical Progress over the past two weeks.
Two Planned Parenthood senior medical officials were exposed as they explained how the taxpayer funded organization performs abortions in such a way as to harvest aborted babies’ body parts to sell them to biomedical companies.
National pro-life group Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future have launched the #WomenBetrayed initiative which urges citizens across the nation to rally to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.
According to a press release, SFLA chose the title of the initiative, #WomenBetrayed, because “Planned Parenthood has betrayed the very patients – women and their children – who they claim to care about and have compassion for.”
“Women are supposed to help and support other women – not use them for profit and sell the body parts of their prenatal children,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLA president. “Planned Parenthood gets a half a billion a year in taxpayer dollars. We are calling on every state and federal government to cut off those funds immediately and investigate Planned Parenthood for possible wrongdoing.”
In the first video from the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood senior medical director Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussed how she “crushes” certain parts of the baby in order to get desired organs intact to be available for sale to biomedical companies. A second video exposes another Planned Parenthood senior medical adviser appearing to negotiate the price of selling baby body parts to undercover citizen journalists she believed to be biomedical entrepreneurs.
According to SFLA, the content of these latest videos is “only the latest infraction in a long list of horrific behaviors, including the covering up of statutory rape, the overbilling taxpayers, the aiding and abetting sex traffickers, scheduling sex-selective abortions and accepting money to abort African American children.”
“Planned Parenthood had a net profit of $127 million in 2013-2014,” Hawkins continued. “Let them fundraise and support themselves like any other business in the country that isn’t deceiving women and making money off of taking the lives of the most vulnerable and selling their body parts.”
Brendan O’Morchoe, Director of Pro-Life Future, said the #WomenBetrayed initiative is proving successful.
“Within days of announcing the national rallies to our supporters, we already have over 50 cities who will be hosting a local rally to defund Planned Parenthood,” he said. “The outrage against taxpayer dollars funding Planned Parenthood is palpable. This is the time to defund them and Americans are going to make their voices heard on July 28.”

Retired pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson will be the featured speaker Tuesday at the Washington, D.C. #WomenBetrayed rally to defund Planned Parenthood.
To date, some 60 cities are confirmed as holding rallies – all of which have been coordinated by the nation’s largest organization of pro-life millennials, Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its partner organization Pro-Life Future. The rallies urge citizens across the nation to demand their states investigate, prosecute and defund Planned Parenthood.
The Washington, D.C. rally will be held on Capitol Hill.
In addition to Carson, other speakers scheduled include Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Chris Smith, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), and other national pro-life leaders. Blackburn led 135 Republican House members in a formal request to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch for an immediate investigation into Planned Parenthood’s practices of harvesting the body parts of aborted babies for sale to biomedical companies.
In an email to SFLA supporters, president Kristan Hawkins invited them to participate in their local rallies, most of which will be held at 12:00 noon local time in the cities located at the #WomenBetrayed website.
“It’s time to stop the more than $500 million taxpayer dollars that flow to the abortion Goliath every year,” Hawkins said. “It’s the time for us to reach their would-be clients first to tell them the truth about Planned Parenthood’s motives. It’s time to topple the first domino in our mission to end abortion in America.”
In a preemptive move to put state political leaders on notice, gun advocates are planning protests Sunday at all 50 state capitals to warn elected officials that they won’t sit idly by and watch their Second Amendment rights be destroyed.
“We’re trying to be very proactive right now,” said Eric Reed, president of Gun Rights Across America, which is organizing the rallies. “I don’t want to see the gun grabbers get a jump on our constitutionally protected rights,” he told Secrets.
The protest is called “Stand Your Ground” and takes place at “high noon.” The phrase “stand your ground” is also the nickname given to laws that let citizens used deadly force when threatened.
Several of the rallies are drawing national politicians. In Louisiana, for example, Republican Sen. David Vitter is expected to attend. In Austin, Texas, former 2012 libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson will attend.
“This event is vital so Americans can have their voices heard. Our elected leaders work for us, and we need to make it crystal clear how we expect them to vote on this issue. The end goal is protect all gun rights for law abiding Americans,” said Reed.
Unlike the NRA, GRAA is a grassroots organization that has a history of hosting political rallies to support the Second Amendment.
The rallies on Sunday will ask lawmakers around the nation to treat gun owners as law abiding citizens, not criminals. The rally notice said:
“We are not criminals; we are law abiding American citizens,” Shannon Montague, vice president of GRAA, said in an email. “We will no longer let the misinformed and uninformed classify us into a genre that is not ours. We are American. We are protectors of the Second Amendment, we are the majority and we will ‘Stand Our Ground,’ ” she added.
