Message to Planned Parenthood, “Abortion is nothing to Celebrate”in Chicago


“Hard-working” PP President and “Contraception Cheerleader” Targets of Navy Pier Protest


WHAT:  A Pro-Life protest of Planned Parenthood’s Generations Gala


WHEN: Thursday, May 2, 2013, at 4:30 p.m. (Central)


WHERE: Chicago’s Navy Pier, beginning at Illinois Street, one block east of Lake Shore Drive, Chicago

MAP: http://goo.gl/maps/OlP5n


WHO: Pro-Life Action League and concerned citizens


WHAT: Prayer and protest to bring attention to the profit-driven abortion industry’s disregard for the well-being and safety of women and children. Of particular concern are flippant comments made my current Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, who has famously boasted that she works hard for her huge salary, and Sandra Fluke, who is best known for complaining to Congress that her Catholic law school refuses to pay for students’ contraception.


WHY: Americans who value the sanctity of human life wish to confront Planned Parenthood’s well-heeled donors with the grisly reality of exactly what they’re supporting.  The protest message will be simple: Abortion is nothing to celebrate.
