A series of recent undercover videos expose Planned Parenthood for who they really are, the nation's largest provider and promoter of abortion. Even some people who call themselves "pro-choice" may wonder what they can do to prevent their money from supporting fetal organ sales at Planned Parenthood. Here are a few ways that you can get involved and help defund Planned Parenthood.
1. Share these videos on social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) so that people know the truth about Planned Parenthood; don't let them continue to survive behind a public relations shield.
2. Contact your legislators and tell them you support defunding Planned Parenthood and a thorough investigation into their organ harvesting. Planned Parenthood should not be receiving more than $500 million in taxpayer dollars every year to kill unborn children and sell their body parts.
3. Get connected with your local Right to Life of Michigan affiliate. The fight against Planned Parenthood will take a long-term, sustained effort.

The Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund state-wide campaign, the compassion project, includes TV spots and short films featuring women who share why they are prolife. These women bring a quiet voice to a noisy debate. Their life experiences convey a fresh perspective to an ongoing discussion: Is abortion justified in certain circumstances?
Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “Those in favor of abortion have pointed to survivors of rape to justify legalized abortion. There is a preconception that women who become pregnant from rape want to abort their children. This is a false stereotype not supported by fact. To counter this misconception, Right to Life of Michigan launched the compassion project. The women featured in the compassion project share why they believe rape should not be used as a reason to justify abortion.”
ACTION NEEDED: Share these ads with people and encourage them to visit the Right to Life of Michigan website to see the short films. You can use the Right to Life of Michigan YouTube channel to share the ads through email and social networking. The short films can be found here.
