The goal of the vigils is to put pressure on U.S. Congressmen to approve legislation to cut federal funding for abortion.
"Enough is enough. We must act swiftly and take a public stand against Planned Parenthood’s agenda [by] raising awareness and calling upon Congress to immediately strip the abortion chain of all tax funding,” read a statement on the vigil’s website.
Attendees are encouraged to bring signs that read: “Planned Parenthood is aiding and abetting underage sex trafficking with your tax [dollars]” and “Tell Congress: No tax [dollars] for Planned Parenthood.”
The vigils are a follow up to the release of Live Action's videos showing Planned Parenthood employees giving advice to a self-proclaimed pimp.
