When: Saturday, October 10, 2015 from 9:00am-11:00am
What: Prayer Vigil, Protest, and Holding Signs
Where: Planned Parenthood, 200 W. 9th St., Lorain OH
Thank you to the nearly 50 people who participated in the protest in front of the Lorain Planned Parenthood (PP) facility on Saturday, October 10, 2015. The Lorain protest was in conjunction with a 2nd National Day of Protest that took place at multiple sites all across the United States. This followed the first National Day of Protest on August 22 which saw over 70,000 people participate around the U.S. Pictures from both Lorain events can be found on our Facebook page.
As revealed in a series of undercover videos released over the past three months by the Center for Medical Progress, in addition to killing over 300,000 children a year, Planned Parenthood has been harvesting and selling body parts of preborn children. The videos show high-level Planned Parenthood executives haggling over pricing of fetal specimens. In one video, a technician describes cutting up a baby whose heart is still beating! This barbarism coming to light will, Lord willing, awaken the American people to the horrible reality of abortion.
Planned Parenthood has claimed that the videos were misleadingly edited. However, cybersecurity and forensic analysis company Coalfire Systems examined each of the 10 videos that CMP has released to determine if they were manipulated in any way. The report prepared by Coalfire Systems finds the only edits in the videos consisted of bathroom breaks and time eating meals. “This conclusion is supported by the consistency of the video file date and time stamps, the video timecode, as well as the folder and file naming scheme,” the report states. “The uniformity between the footage from Investigator 1’s camera and Investigator 2’s camera also support the evidence that the video recordings are authentic.” The report also confirms that “edits made to the Full Footage videos [for the shorter YouTube videos] were applied to eliminate non-pertinent footage, such as restroom breaks, meals, and other similar periods lacking pertinent conversation.”
Despite killing millions of children, and despite the controversy created by the undercover videos-including possible illegal activity- Planned Parenthood continues to receive over half a billion dollars from state and federal governments.
We are at a crossroads in our nation where we can no longer deny the humanity of the preborn children being brutally killed by abortion. Now is the time to act! Using social media and any other means you have available, please continue to share information about the atrocities occurring in the abortion industry. Please contact your U.S. and Ohio elected officials and demand not just the defunding of Planned Parenthood, but the end of abortion in America. And above all else, pray that God will bless our Nation with a culture of life!
