Albuquerque, NM- On April 23, nationally coordinated protests will be held at over 200 Planned Parenthood centers throughout the United States, including the center at 701 San Mateo Blvd. NE in Albuquerque, which is being sponsored by Protest ABQ. These national protests are being organized by the #ProtestPP coalition, formed in response to the undercover videos released last year showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the harvesting and selling of body parts from aborted children.
The protestors in Albuquerque and throughout the country will be standing in solidarity with David Daleiden, the pro-life whistleblower who is facing baseless civil and criminal charges for conducting a 30-month undercover investigation of the abortion industry’s trafficking in fetal tissue. “Planned Parenthood and their powerful allies in government are trying to discredit and silence pro-lifers who are guilty of nothing more than exposing the shocking truth about their abortion practices,” said Bud Shaver, executive director of Protest ABQ. “On April 23, we’ll be setting the record straight in our community.”
Just last week, Protest ABQ filed a formal complaint with the NM Nursing Board against Planned Parenthood abortionist Vivianne Clark, who is a registered nurse. We believe that Clark is in violation of a portion of the NM Criminal Abortion statute that requires physicians to perform abortions.
Please join us as we stand in solidarity with thousands of pro-lifers across the nation to let Planned Parenthood and our communities know that we will continue to expose their lies and seek accountability for them and their atrocities.
#ProtestPP is a coalition of state and national pro-life groups, headed by three national pro-life activist organizations: Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal, and the Pro-Life Action League. In the wake of the coalition’s two national days of protest last year, more than 20 Planned Parenthood facilities closed and nine states voted to strip the organization of state funding.
When: Saturday, April 23rd
Location- 701 San Mateo Blvd NE. Please use street parking but don't block driveways.
