Pro-life activists to oppose Planned Parenthood’s abortion party

In fiscal 2012, Planned Parenthood received a record $542 million from the federal government. That means that about 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s budget now comes from the American taxpayer, a new all-time high. But apparently $542 million just isn’t enough. Planned Parenthood needs even more money to fund its abortion industry.

Planned Parenthood Clinic SignSo to fundraise on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles is throwing a party. On Tuesday, January 22, Los Angeles pro-aborts will be sipping cocktails, networking, and accepting $10 donations at Busby’s Restaurant, located at 5364 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, to support its local abortion services. Busby’s is also kicking in 15% of the night’s proceeds to support the aborters. The group is openly advertising the fundraiser on its Facebook page.

The Facebook event alerted Mrs. Catherine Contreras, the president of Foot Soldiers for Life, a Los Angeles-based pro-life group. Contreras and her soldiers plan to crash Planned Parenthood’s fundraising party in peaceful protest. They are actively inviting other pro-life supporters to attend.

Foot Soldiers for Life will protest outside the restaurant from 6pm until 9pm, local time, rain or shine. The Soldiers will use sidewalk-chalking and abortion image posters with event-specific signs (like “40 Years of This is Nothing to Celebrate”) to highlight Planned Parenthood’s greedy profiteering. These pro-life warriors will become citizen-journalists, using video cameras to expose those attending the fundraiser as well as to protect themselves against assaults, slander, and defamation.

Foot Soldiers for Life periodically conducts pro-life “boot camps” to train new pro-life recruits about the humanity of the unborn, fetal development, and pain from a medical perspective, and ways to counter and expose common pro-abortion fallacies in discussion.

    Instead of wasting time doing this, why aren’t they instead planning and holding hold their own fundraiser for pregnancy care centers? Protesting outside a Planned Parenthood fundraiser might make them feel better, but that’s about it.

    “Exposing those attending the fundraiser” seems all guerilla but it isn’t going to shame anyone who already supports Planned Parenthood enough to attend their fundraiser. It will likely embolden opponents of the prolife movement and allow them to play victim. There is enough shaming in the world. Positive energy is more productive than negative energy.

      There are lots of valid ways to work for the abolition of abortion. I think this protest is one of them. My best to the prolife ladies!

      With all due respect for you views, Deege, this has nothing to do with “shaming”. It has to do with standing up for the truth and for human rights. Do you think the civil rights movement would have been successful if they didn’t protest? We will end abortion when we get serious and rise up with a clear and determined voice demanding it. I hope you will join us.

    Good luck Ms. Contreras et al.! I hope you have an effect. The local PP where I live just had an open house last night. I sent out an email to the list of people that I have for abortion protests. No one responded. I hope your people are more active and engaged. Got get ‘em!
