PRO-LIFERS MAKE STATEMENT IN WEST VIRGINIA!
This past Saturday April 23rd, #ProtestPP conducted it’s first annual nationwide protest at Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide, to be held on the 4th Saturday of April every year until the abortion chain no longer preys upon our communities.
#ProtestPP is calling on Congress and the States to cut off all government funding to Planned Parenthood and bring charges against all those responsible for the horrific baby parts scandal. And they are demanding that all charges against undercover journalist David Daleiden be dropped.
As part of this nationwide protest, several pro-lifers gathered in front of the Planned Parenthood office in Vienna, WV. Many of them shared their thoughts on abortion, the pro-life movement, the Memorial Cross Movement, the Planned Parenthood baby parts selling scandal, defunding PP, and the bogus charges brought against citizen journalist David Daleiden.
Patty Cooper, the president of the Wood County chapter of West Virginians For Life talked about De-funding Planned Parenthood.
“Well we certainly hope that we can take that half a billion dollars per year out of our tax dollars and send it to places like Shriner’s and Saint Jude’s Hospital, that try to save children’s lives and don’t cost the parents anything. This is West Virginia’s only Planned Parenthood. They do not do abortions here, but they do refer over to Columbus, OH and Charleston, WV. I am determined that West Virginia will become the first state in the union to become Planned Parenthoodless. And so I also do the 40 days for life prayer vigil out here. This is the third nationwide protest that we have participated in. They have decided to make the fourth Saturday of every April as an official Planned Parenthood protest all across the United States of America. So until we can get that accomplished, you’ll find me out here the fourth Saturday of every April.”
In regards to other organizations where pregnant women can receive medical care Patty mentioned, “You can go to the Crisis Medical Center. There’s one in almost all of the major towns have them. Even some of the smaller towns and counties have them. Obamacare will cover all those kinds of expenses…”
Patty went on to say, “I would like to say about this particular Planned Parenthood…, since I started doing these protests out here and organizing when all these wonderful people come out. This particular PP is no longer open 40 hours a week. They are open 16 hours per week for 3 days. There closed 3 days. They are only open the 1st and 3rd Saturdays out of the month for 4 hours. So we have effectively cut them down from a 40 hour week to a 20 hour week for 2 weeks and a 16 hour week for the other 2 weeks. So we’re making progress. And one of these days it’s not going to be profitable for them to be here anymore.”
Mike Azinger, who is running for the WV state senate shared his thoughts on Planned Parenthood, “I think that Planned Parenthood is an evil and we need to De-fund it. A lot of pro-life legislation that was being passed in WV and states across the country… A lot of great things are happening with the pro-life movement.”
Mr. Azinger also spoke of the bogus charges brought against David Daleiden, “That is obviously justice turned on it’s head. Here is a man/group that is doing great work and nothing that their doing is wrong. Planned Parenthood is the one who should be on the dock here being in trouble and the law against them. But the law has flipped. The law is getting behind Planned Parenthood and prosecuting the good guys. It’s just kind of a microcosm of what’s happening in the country. When a nation drifts from God, justice flips on it’s head. That’s what your seeing with these good people.”
Sunny Murray also shared her thoughts, “I think Planned Parenthood should be De-funded because it’s the largest abortion provider in the Unites States. They do almost 40% of all abortions in the U.S…, we are protesting the illegal activity of PP in that they price out, harvest, and sell body parts of the aborted babies that they kill at their clinics.”
On the charges against David Daleiden, Sunny had this to say, “I think those are trumped up charges. She’s running for the senate and she’s in the pocket of Planned Parenthood. They have donated to her campaign and I think that she’s just a puppet of PP…, There is a petition to have her resign for conflict of interest. And David is a citizen journalist. He has every right to use the techniques that he did. Those same techniques were used by animal activists to investigate cruelty to animals. So I don’t see what the problem is with him using those techniques to solve the problem of babies being killed in abortion clinics.”
Sunny and Katie Walters also spoke about the Memorial Cross Project, a program sponsored by West Virginians For Life, in which 3,000 wooden crosses are erected to serve as a reminder of the number of babies aborted daily in the U.S., “…,We will be putting up the crosses at Parkersburg Catholic High School and at Saint Monica’s in Lubeck…, Memorial weekend May 29th through June 12th. We keep these up for about 2 weeks in the summer.”
Angela when asked about defunding Planned Parenthood, “Yes they don’t need any funds. They need to be shut down completely and they’re killing our children.”
Angela spoke to the 3,000 babies aborted daily, “They say that all the wars together don’t even come close to what they’re killing everyday of our babies.”
In regards to David Daleiden Angela said, “He should be praised. Yes and the government’s wrong for doing what their doing against him and shame on them.”
Local Catholic Priest, Father George Nedeff shared an experience he had while protesting an abortion mill in Corpus Christi, TX, “I remember once, one day a car drove by. A young man stuck his fist out the window and shouted, ‘Abortion is right!, Abortion is right!’ And the only thing that came to mind were the words, ‘Well apparently it wasn’t right for you!’ And he ducked his head back in that window and drove off.”
Father George also mentioned, “God is pro-life. He says in the Bible, ‘I have set before you life and death. Choose life so that you may have life.’
One protester spoke about the effect of abortion, “Well think of all the millions that have been killed since 1973. Many of these would be paying social security, medicare, and stuff like that. We don’t know who have we killed, the next president or somebody who could have prevented cancer, come up with a cure for cancer…, It’s just terrible that we would murder our own.”
Another pro-lifer spoke to the 3,000 daily abortions, “I think it’s terrible. It’s worse than murder. Because what more innocent blood do we have than unborn children? I don’t think we have the right to play God and kill them.”
George Wallace, president of the Cabell County chapter of West Virginians For Life, had this to say, “I’m here today to take my stand against Planned Parenthood because of what they do. They butcher innocent babies’ lives. What they do is against the law. Number one, they violated the Born Again Act. And also they violated this harvesting and selling of babies’ organs, which is totally against the law. And I believe people like us need to take a stand against PP and the abortion industry all together.”
David Daleiden, renowned for his undercover investigative reporting for The Center For Medical Progress has gone public with a series of gruesomely revealing videos of harvested babies being sold by Planned Parenthood for profit. These videos include admissions by Planned Parenthood executives of illegal partial birth abortions being performed in order to keep fetuses intact to sell them for profit. One executive, Dr. Mary Gatter, president of the PP Medical Directors’ Council wanted to mark up the price of baby parts as high as possible so she could by herself a Lamborghini!

On Wednesday, April 6, agents from the office of California Attorney General Kamala Harris raided the apartment of pro-life whistleblower David Daleiden, the man behind the undercover Planned Parenthood videos.
Harris has received thousands in donations from Planned Parenthood, making this action a clear conflict of interest. Click the button below to sign the petition calling for her resignation today!
