Dueling Planned Parenthood rallies in Fort Collins

Anti-abortion groups rallied at Planned Parenthood clinics in scores of USA cities on Saturday to urge Congress and President Donald Trump to strip the health services provider of federal funding.

That's why Sharon Caldwell and a large group of other counterprotesters came out to the St. Louis clinic to rebut the claims of the anti-abortion rally Saturday.

66-year-old Dan Lucas said, "Planned Parenthood doesn't take care of just women".

More than 50 critics of Planned Parenthood marched with yellow "Choose Life" signs and calls to defund Planned Parenthood.

Several of the protestors are part of the Chemung County Right to Life organization. She said she wants to be part of the solution.

"I've been planning on getting more active, and I thought, 'What better time than now?' the Garden City resident said". Reyes said her stepfather forced her to get an abortion in Cuba when she was 13 after he raped and impregnated her.

However, Hebron said she expects Roe v. Wade - the Supreme Court ruling that found abortions legal - will be overturned in her lifetime.

"We should punish rapists, not babies", she said.

Rep. Curtis Trent, R-Springfield, attended the rally, saying he heard about it through word-of-mouth. Margie Sznajder, a demonstrator at a defund-Planned Parenthood rally in Aurora, Illinois, was excited that, "we finally have someone in the White House who has the power and authority to save and defend lives".

"There's been a moral reawakening among young people", Trent said.

Advocates say Planned Parenthood provides vital services to women including birth control and STD screening and that abortions only make up a small portion of what Planned Parenthood does.

"No way should my taxpayer money be funding abortions", he said.

Angela Futrell, the CEO of Southeastern Virginia Health System, told the Hampton Roads Daily Press that Planned Parenthood plays a vital role providing health care to people with low incomes.

However, a lawsuit could change that.

Barker said the Plattsburgh office is one of seven Planned Parenthood health centers in the North Country, serving roughly 10,000 patients each year.

About two dozen people showed up Saturday to protest outside of Council Bluffs' Planned Parenthood clinic, carrying the same message as their counterparts nationwide: Cut off government payments to the organization.

Rights don't protect themselves, people do!
