Pro-life Activists to Hold Peaceful Sit-in and Risk Arrest

Groups to hold the sit-in/pray-in in front of Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday, July 13 at 1:00 P.M.

Quicken Loans Arena is where the Republican National Convention will be held the following week.

The activists will kneel on the steps of Quicken Loans Arena or in the streets directly in front of the Arena, being a voice for the 900 children that are violently killed through abortion every day at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics across America.

Groups will also ask that the $540,000,000 given to Planned Parenthood annually instead go to 13,000 federally licensed health clinics that provide true comprehensive women's health care.

This sit-in/pray-in is part of a three day campaign in Cleveland, from July 13-15, calling for the Republican Party to defund Planned Parenthood in their Party Platform.
