WASHINGTON, Sept. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, September 19th at 12:30 pm, Students for Life of America will be launching the National #Sockit2PP Truck Tour at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
Students for Life of America (SFLA) will be visiting dozens of states and more than 90 college campuses this fall, showing Americans just how violent abortion is and how Planned Parenthood is the biggest perpetrator of violence in our nation. SFLA will be hosting a press conference to put pressure on Congressional leaders in Washington to defund the nation's largest abortion vendor and recipient of more than $500 million in taxpayer dollars each year. The American people support defunding Planned Parenthood.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America stated, "Planned Parenthood has lied to the American public, committed fraud with taxpayer dollars, and has been proven to sell the body parts of baby's they abort for profit. Yet, Congress continually fails to defund Planned Parenthood. The pro-life generation is sick of being told to wait until another election season has passed. We are expecting Congress to uphold their promises and stop subsidizing America's largest abortion vendor."
At the press conference, SFLA will have a truck filled with 328,348 baby socks, each sock representing children aborted by Planned Parenthood this year. Members of the media and the public are encouraged to come see the truck and join Students for Life on this tour. Kristan Hawkins will be available for interviews after the press conference.
