Volunteers needed for Planned Parenthood protests on July 28

Students for Life of America (SFLA) and its companion alumni organization Pro-Life Future are coordinating anti-Planned Parenthood rallies around the country and are seeking volunteer rally captains to expand the protests into as many cities as possible. The rallies will take place on July 28, a week from tomorrow.

Under the banner #WomenBetrayed, the rallies will call for an end to taxpayer subsidies of the abortion giant. The campaign was perhaps spurred by the recent "baby parts" exposé, but is not focused on that issue. There is no shortage good reasons to defund Planned Parenthood and redirect reproductive health funding to more worthy organizations. As SFLA puts it:
The abortion giant claims they care about women but they don’t – just look at their actions. Planned Parenthood gets over $500 million a year in our taxpayer money and makes more than $100 million in profit, all while having abortion quotas. The organization has been caught covering up statutory rape, double-billing taxpayers, aiding and abetting sex traffickers, scheduling sex-selective abortions and accepting money to abort African American children.
Women have been betrayed by Planned Parenthood. Families have been deceived. And the smallest among us have been the ultimate victims of Planned Parenthood's horrific business schemes. Quite frankly, we've had enough. It’s time to relieve Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer dollars.
As of this writing, volunteers have signed up to lead rallies in Lansing, Los Angeles, Denver, St. Paul, Lexington, Washington, St. Louis, Chicago, Des Moines, Houston, Dallas, Bloomington, Columbus, Little Rock, Indianapolis, Rochester, Trenton, and Fort Wayne.

If your city isn't on the list, sign up to be a rally captain! The application is simple, you'll get an answer within 24 hours, and SFLA will support you with "sample press advisories, media talking points, step-by-step rally planning directions, at least 1 hour of one-on-one coaching, social media graphics, legal support, training conference calls, and even professionally-printed rally signs!" There is no religious requirement and I would love to see some rallies led by non-Christian pro-lifers.
