ARE YOU PART OF THE
On Saturday, August 22nd, tens of thousands of pro-life Americans came together to form a National Protest of Planned Parenthood at hundreds of Planned Parenthood facilities all across the U.S.! That is nothing short of amazing.
MFC came together with other Minnesota pro-life organizations, including our friends at Pro-Life Action Ministries, Students for Life of America, Human Life Alliance, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, and Silent No More Awareness Campaign to co-sponsor a local Planned Parenthood Protest at the mega Planned Parenthood in St. Paul...and over 4500 of you, along with pro-life Minnesota legislators, Dr. John Piper, Rev. Denise Walker, and Pastor Sergio Amezcua attended! WOW!
Looks like this MN Protest ended up being the largest in the country on Saturday! Way to go!
We are so grateful! Thank you!
And, even better, the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ was honored throughout the entire Planned Parenthood Protest in St. Paul!
We wanted to share some highlights from the St. Paul National Protest of Planned Parenthood with you!
Some of the best signs spotted at the Planned Parenthood Protest:
MFC's Policy Director, Autumn Leva, spoke at the rally
"Planned Parenthood says it's necessary for women's healthcare, when in Minnesota alone there are 18 Planned Parenthood facilities compared to 173 women's health clinics who actually DO provide mammograms, don't practice abortion, and are far more deserving of the funding!
We clearly don't need Planned Parenthood!
Finally, we now know that Planned Parenthood harvests body parts from aborted babies—sometimes without the mother’s permission and sometimes when the baby is still alive—and sells them for profit.
Why on earth is this type of barbaric practice allowed in 2015.
We don’t need Planned Parenthood!"

Minnesota Pro-Life Legislators also attended the National Protest of Planned Parenthood in St. Paul!
Representative Marion O'Neill (front left) shared a powerful, heartbreaking story about the loss of her young daughter to a brain tumor. She reminds us: "All life is precious. Don't take it for granted!"
"The nurse said 'there's your baby's heartbeat' not 'oh, there's some tissue.'" - Rep. Anna Wills (front right)
"We regulate massage parlors in MN. It makes NO sense that we don't regulate abortion clinics." -Rep. Abigail Whelan (middle right)
"This [abortion] is an American holocaust, and we have to stop it!" -Sen. Dan Hall (Burnsville)
"We have a death penalty in MN--it's called abortion." -Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen (Glencoe)
"Planned Parenthood says 'Just trust us', but you deserve to know the truth! Investigate Planned Parenthood & Defund Planned Parenthood!" -Rep. Matt Dean (second from right)
Rev. Denise Walker closed with a prayer & call to Governor Dayton:
"Government is given authority by God to do GOD'S business. To do HIS good works.
I call upon Governor Mark Dayton who's appointed by God to do good and punish evil. We call on you to be the statesman He's called you to be and do GOOD.
Defund this place! Amen?"
What's next? Does Planned Parenthood get away with all this?
Our friend, Brian Gibson with Pro-Life Action Ministries, said:
"The headlines read 'Planned Parenthood Weathers FIRESTORM.' That's either prophetic or it's false. If protesting Planned Parenthood is the only thing you do, then it's prophetic. If this is the beginning of what you do, then it's false.
WE need to BE the FIRESTORM!"
Brian is exactly right.
Will you be part of the Firestorm that exposes Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices, defunds Planned Parenthood, and ultimately makes the "choice" of abortion unthinkable?
Men & women of Christ have the responsibility to speak life & truth into their culture, and to restore real hope to women and families.
