CHICAGO - Planned Parenthood's Trivia Night donors will face pro-life protesters next Tuesday night at Chicago's Revolution Brewing restaurant.
Groups such as Students for Life of America, Chicago Pro-Life Future and the Pro-Life Action League plan to meet at 5:30 PM to protest the fundraiser as participants enter.
One of the organizers called Planned Parenthood's 328,348 abortion each year evidence of "age discrimination."
Wherever Planned Parenthood is, we must be too. They are the nation’s largest abortion provider, committing nearly 900 abortions each day in the United States," David Cordaro, Upper Midwest Regional Coordinator for Students for Life of America said. " We will not rest until we see an end to age discrimination through abortion."
The Pro-Life Action League listed 10 trivia questions about abortion that they say won't be asked at Planned Parenthood's "Trivia Night." One of the questions include, "How many abortions did Planned Parenthood of Illinois facilities perform last year?" The answer, Pro-Life Action League says, is that the people of Illinois don't know. Planned Parenthood's numbers are protected.
"Although the State of Illinois knows how many abortions Planned Parenthood facilities in the state perform, this information is not available to the public even if a Freedom of Information Act request is filed," the League's answer says.
Also, Planned Parenthood clinics are not licensed as medical facilities in the state of Illinois, the League said.
"...[A]ll Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Illinois are unlicensed—which, incredibly, is allowed under Illinois law—and therefore they have never been inspected by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
A bill that would allow abortions in Illinois to be paid for by the state's taxpayers awaits Governor Rauner's action this week.
