Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization, took their ground-breaking Planned Parenthood Project to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville yesterday and met some resistance – check out the video below to hear an avid Planned Parenthood defender call the abortion giant a “noble and just organization” all the awhile advocating to “Abort away as far as I am concerned.”
The Planned Parenthood Project was developed by Students for Life after the organization’s own polling in 2012 found that 59% of 18-24 year olds didn’t know Planned Parenthood provided abortions. In addition, Students for Life’s internal research has found that 79% of Planned Parenthood facilities are within five miles of a college campus, proving college-aged women and men prime targets for the organization.
The visual display is made up of 915 pink crosses to represent the number of unborn children that die each day inside of Planned Parenthood. In addition, the display has billboards that cite Planned Parenthood’s own annual report numbers and testimony from former employees to call into question their “caring” image. The campus is part of a national tour that will travel 21,861 miles and go 26 universities in 14 states over the next eight weeks this fall.
The majority of this generation is against abortion, which is why Planned Parenthood never advertises the fact that they are the nation’s largest abortion vendor. So our goal is simple: we want to educate this generation about Planned Parenthood’s real motives and business model in order to turn them against the abortion Goliath and towards pro-life, pregnancy resource centers where they can go for honest, real help.
