The highly politicized anti-choice movement advocates for the abolition of Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides critical preventive and primary reproductive health care services to low income women. The current cornerstone of their argument stems from a fabricated, fictional story that clinics “sell baby parts for profit”. Organizers of the April 23rd protest, entitled #ProtestPP, directly intended to irresponsibly perpetuate this contrived story in an attempt to leverage misunderstanding for political gain and impose the moral opinions of some upon a diverse community.The anti-protest protests take place today at Planned Parenthood in Ferndale at 9:15 a.m. and at Planned Parenthood in Detroit at 10:15 a.m.
