Pro-life Groups Call for the Republican Party to Defund Planned Parenthood in the 2016 Republican Party Platform

Several pro-life organizations are planning major demonstrations just before the Republican National Convention to ensure the pro-life message is heard by the Platform Committee.

Activists will request that $540,000,000 currently given to Planned Parenthood be redirected to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics which provide true comprehensive women's health care. These clinics provide a greater variety of services and choices to women than Planned Parenthood and are not under federal investigation.

The groups leading the demonstrations are also conducting a five-city tour through Ohio on June 16-17 in preparation for their campaign in Cleveland.
