2 Protests, 5 Steps to Defund Planned Parenthood

Last month, there was an organized effort to get people all over the nation to protest the illegal selling of baby body parts at Planned Parenthood. Over 100 people showed up to the rally in Vancouver. 

. But we still need to send a message to our elected 

There will be two more rallies this month and we hope you will be
able to come stand up for pre-born children!

In addition to showing up at these rallies, here are 5 things you can do to help
defund Planned Parenthood:

1. Call your legislators and ask them to defund Planned Parenthood
Since the release of the videos, 44 Washington State Lawmakers have called 
Planned Parenthood. If your legislator has asked the Attorney General to investigate, 
thank them for their efforts to end Planned Parenthood funding in Washington State. 
If they have not called for an investigation, ask them why they haven't and let them 
know your thoughts on the issue. You can leave a message with all your legislators at 
the same time by calling the Legislative Hotline at 1-800-562-6000 or you can 
email them by clicking here. 

Call Attorney General Bob Ferguson's Office and ask him to investigate 
Planned Parenthood.  
Attorney General Ferguson has been asked by legislators to investigate Planned 
Parenthood to see if there is any illegal selling of baby body parts. He has sent 
action on [their] part is appropriate". Please call his office and let him know 
that you support an investigation into Planned Parenthood. You can call his 
office at 360-753-6200.

3. Make a personal meeting with your legislators
Schedule a meeting with your legislators and ask them to watch one or two of the 
Planned Parenthood videos, and then ask them if they feel you should be 
obligated to pay for it with tax dollars. Click here to find out who your 
legislators are and to get their contact information.

4. Ask every candidate how they feel about public funding for Planned 
Parenthood.  Before you send in your ballot, ask the candidates what their feelings are 
about public funding for Planned Parenthood.

5. Ask your friends to take action
Print out the flyer below and pass them out to your friends. Ask them to contact their
legislators and the Attorney General about the Planned Parenthood videos.
