In the Eye of the Tigers…

Barb Wire

Our “Don’t Fund Planned Parenthood Bus Tour” is underway! This afternoon, the tour kicked off on Campus of the Clemson Tigers in South Carolina. In addition to Arina Grossu, the Director of Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity, and Kristina Hernandez with Students for Life of America, we were joined by State Rep. Garry Smith, State Rep. Donna Hicks, a representative from the office of Congressman Jeff Duncan, and the President of Students for Life’s Clemson chapter.

Planned Parenthood targets college students, but many are not aware of the organization’s horrendous business practices. The rally was held in the heart of the Clemson campus and we were able to raise awareness not just at the rally, but with the many of the students who passed by the Planned Parenthood Project Display.

It included 897 crosses — the number of abortions Planned Parenthood commits each day. The team was able to engage many college students in conversation and equip them with the facts. Many had heard about the recent controversy but had not seen the Planned Parenthood videos.

After hearing the conversations, one woman came up and shared her personal story. Her doctors strongly urged her to abort because of a medical condition and told her that even if she gave birth, her child would have genetic abnormalities and she herself could go blind or even die. She made the courageous decision to carry the baby as long as she could. She gave birth at 30 weeks to a healthy baby boy and she had no complications!
