Scenes from Saturday's Anti-Abortion Protests

On February 11th, anti-abortion activists staged protests near Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. Sponsored by Pro-Life League, Created Equal, and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, the #ProtestPP effort called for the federal government to defund Planned Parenthood, which the ProtestPP website called "he nation’s largest abortion chain with a long record of unethical activity".
"The time has come to defund America’s abortion giant! Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain, killing over 300,000 babies each year, and nearly half of their billion dollar budget comes from our tax dollars.

But now the new 115th Congress is moving to strip Planned Parenthood of that money! On February 11, pro-lifers like you will take to the streets to demand our government stops funding an organization that specializes in killing children."
Both anti-abortion and pro-choice demonstrators were out in force on Saturday, reminding us that abortion remains a divisive issue in the U.S. Below are some photos and videos of the protests shared by anti-abortion activists on Twitter.
