On August 22, 2015 thousands of pro-life advocates, from young to old, gathered in front of Planned Parenthood locations across the United States to protest. Today, I am going to tell you about my experience when I went to the protest in Akron, Ohio.
Along with the mass amount of yelling and hatred, there was so many people there protesting a place that murders children. The amount of faith pouring out of the protesters was moving. The fact that so many want a horrible place shut down is heartwarming.
There are so many other resources besides Planned Parenthood that will actually help women. For every Planned Parenthood there is around twenty pregnancy crisis centers.
Here is a website I like a lot, Care Net.
Even Googling "Pregnancy Crisis Centers Near Me".
Abortion does not have to be an option.
People like to make it seem that Planned Parenthood is the only available resource- it isn't. Hopefully within the next few years we can outlaw abortion and defund, or even shut down, Planned Parenthood. We don't have to make women feel so vulnerable and there is no other way out. We need to make sure that as the pro-life youth we are accepting and understanding in the best ways we know.
