It's gotta stop.

From the 40 Days for Life website....


Are you sick and tired of Planned Parenthood getting $363 MILLION of taxpayer
funding a year -- while aiding and abetting illegal underage sex trafficking?
Take a public stand Monday 2/14 and tell Congress:
"Vigils for Victims" of underage sex trafficking are being organized outside Planned Parenthood offices coast-to-coast on Monday, February 14, from Noon to 1 PM in each U.S. Time Zone ...
... and YOU can make a profound impact in one hour!
 Consider these facts:
  • For the last two weeks, the national media has been abuzz with the shocking story of the undercover sting operation that caught abortion giant Planned Parenthood red-handed in the despicable act of aiding and abetting sex trafficking and prostitution of girls as young as 14
  • Numerous undercover videos have now been released, documenting Planned Parenthood workers at multiple locations across several states assuring an undercover investigator posing as a pimp that the organization would secretly provide abortions and other services to underage victims of human trafficking, facilitating their exploitation
  • Federal law is clear: "Sex trafficking of minors is a federal crime and punishable by imprisonment for 10 years to life." (18 U.S. Code 1591) Additionally, "any person who aids abets, or counsels a federal crime to be committed may be punished as if they had committed the crime themselves." (18 U.S. Code 2)
  • The institution-wide scandal has now reached the highest levels at Planned Parenthood, with top executives making the appalling claim that their workers who were caught on video facilitating underage sex slavery "responded professionally."
  • After receiving a record $363 MILLION in taxpayer funds last year, Planned Parenthood's president Cecile Richards then had the audacity to send out an urgent appeal for abortion advocates to contact Congress -- so the organization can rake in even MORE of your hard-earned tax dollars!
 And if that wasn't enough, now Planned Parenthood is attempting to hijack Valentine's Dayas a marketing gimmick to expand its harmful agenda, shove condoms into the hands of our young children, and lure even more vulnerable victims into its facilities.
We must act swiftly and take a public stand against Planned Parenthood's harmful agenda -- raising awareness in the communities where we live, and calling upon Congress toIMMEDIATELY strip the abortion chain of all tax funding.
This Monday, February 14, all people of faith and conscience are being called upon to hold one-hour "Vigils for Victims" of human trafficking during the Noon hour in the public right-of-way outside Planned Parenthood offices nationwide.
 This requires rapid action, but will show Planned Parenthood -- and the media -- the power of pro-life America to bring about change!
It’s simple! Here's all you need to do …

Find the Planned Parenthood nearest to you! Go to:  
On the right side of that web page, enter your zip code or state to find the nearest facility. Write down that information.
Make plans to gather with other people of faith and conscience on Monday, February 14, from Noon to 1 PM (in your time zone) in the public right of way outside of that Planned Parenthood location.
Know your rights! Download and print the following legal letter and fact sheet prepared for you by the attorneys at the Thomas More Legal Society (PDF file):
The most powerful form of advertising in the world is "word of mouth." With the short turnaround on this initiative, the success of each vigil will be dependent on how fast, far, and wide you spread the word to invite others to join you at Monday's vigil!

Send a press release early Monday morning to all your local media outlets announcing your local vigil, using this sample template (Word document): 

Holding a vigil is completely legal, and must remain peaceful and prayerful. All communications should be focused on 3 key messages:
  1. Planned Parenthood is aiding & abetting underage sex trafficking
  2. Planned Parenthood is unsafe for women and girls
  3. Tell Congress: No Tax $ for Planned Parenthood
Make signs for participants to hold at your vigil! Either get some white poster board and red and black markers to write these messages, or click the images below to get PDF files of each sign to have printed at a local copy shop on 24 x 36" paper or card stock.
Make copies of the Vigil Fact Sheet to distribute to all participants. It includes documentation about the institutional scandal rocking Planned Parenthood and has guidelines for vigil behavior and how to deal with any media coverage.

Be sure to take pictures and video of your Vigil for Victims, and post them on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube! (Use the hash tags #vigil4victims and #ExposePP for any tweets.)
After your vigil, let us know how it went! Post a report on Twitter using the hash tag#vigil4victims or send us an e-mail at:     
Together, we really can make a difference! Let's act quickly to make sure Planned Parenthood is held fully accountable for its willingness to aid and abet underage sex trafficking, and let's tell Congress that the time has come to DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD!

Please consider going out and praying.  They are having a vigil at Planned Parenthood on Albemarle Rd.
