Planned Parenthood Supporters Outnumber Anti-Abortion Activists At NYC Protests

North Korea fires first ballistic missile of Trump era

West Allis - With a new grandchild in her family, Becky Sanfelippo said Saturday that she chose to join her first public protest, holding a "Moms for Life" sign and standing with around 70 people gathered outside the Planned Parenthood health center on S. 108th St.

The counterprotesters plan to gather at 8:30 a.m. and stay at the site until 11 a.m.

Planned Parenthood receives federal funds from Medicaid reimbursements and Title X, a federal program that supports family planning and preventive health services.

In 2014 Planned Parenthood conducted more than 300 thousand abortions accounting for 3 percent of its services.

Planned Parenthood now receives about half a billion dollars of taxpayer funding every year, and performs about 320,000 abortions annually.

Several of the protestors are part of the Chemung County Right to Life organization.

Rep. Curtis Trent, R-Springfield, attended the rally, saying he heard about it through word-of-mouth.

"We know who will suffer if these things happen: poor people, people of color and queer people", she said in a statement. ABC TEN's Melanie Palmer has the details on what this could mean for users along with the organization.

"There's been a moral reawakening among young people", Trent said.

President Trump has made four specific commitments to the pro-life movement, including reallocating Planned Parenthood's taxpayer funding to comprehensive, whole-woman healthcare centers.

However, a lawsuit could change that.

The counter protesters say Planned Parenthood's services encompass much more than abortion and they support a woman's right to make decisions about her body.
