Hundreds of demonstrations were held outside of Planned Parenthood clinics across the U.S. this weekend with protesters calling on the federal government to stop funding the abortion giant.
After videos were released last month showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing their fetal tissue donation program in graphic detail, the Chicago-based Pro-Life Action League called on a national day of protest.
Eric Scheidler, the group's executive director, said that "with 240 out of 342 cities reporting" over 58,000 people turned out to protest Aug. 22.
"Great day! Except for Planned Parenthood!" he tweeted that evening.
