Protesters march statewide for and against federal funds for Planned Parenthood

Two Saturday protests focused on Planned Parenthood and abortion services were planned in Fort Collins.

Gemmill, who is eight months pregnant, was one of many pro-life advocates calling for an end to Planned Parenthood's federal funding.

Protesters in MI picketed at about 15 Planned Parenthood facilities in the state, with six of them in the Detroit area. We don't have to pay for it.

"Overall, we would want him to take that tax paying funds, again nearly $500 million and redirect it to women's pregnancy centers", said Gemmill.

The initial protests a move by pro-lifer supports was countered by pro-choice supporters.

A rally against Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo was met with about 800 pro-choice protestors.

"Seeing how many people actually, genuinely, openly support Planned Parenthood, that alone might help shift their decision making process", Hunter Correll said.

"It's a place that you can get access to decent, good, healthcare", said Mauri Fagan, a pro-choice protester.

Pastor Dan Church of the Faith Bible Chapel in Buckfield said he is usually outside the Planned Parenthood office on Friday morning to offer prayers. "I will be there for them, because they were there for me when nobody else was".

According to #ProtestPP, Planned Parenthood facilities conduct more than 300,000 abortions each year, or about 30 percent of abortions nationwide. "You're supposed to take care of it, it's there for protection", said Rachel Wadsworth, a pro-life protester. The organization of around 650 health centers provides birth control and other women's health services, in addition to abortion.

"There's a lot of political energy going on right now, really since the Women's March in January".

On the other side of town, supports of Planned Parenthood. Those marching for planned parenthood say their rally was also about safe, affordable health care. "I do believe we're outnumbered, but God is greater and we do believe He's on our side".
