Protests against Planned Parenthood happening today and tomorrow

Building on the excellent momentum generated by Wednesday's #SockIt2PP demonstration on Capital Hill, pro-life advocates across the nation are rallying this weekend to demand an end to taxpayer subsidies for the country's largest abortion chain, Planned Parenthood. Every year, Planned Parenthood gobbles up half a billion dollars in government funding. We want every penny redirected to the many wonderful community health centers that offer compassionate women's healthcare regardless of ability to pay—and that don't kill unborn children.

That's not a coincidence, and I have to explain that Planned Parenthood has morphed over the last decade and is now basically an abortion business. Live Action just released a video that does an excellent job capturing that transformation, using data from Planned Parenthood's own annual reports:
