The nation’s largest organization of pro-life youth is taking its message to the heart of Times Square in New York City.
Students for Life of America is running an ad that sends a message that Planned Parenthood betrays women. The ad began Wednesday and will run for one week, looping every hour daily from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. at the intersection of 1500 Broadway and 43rd St. in the heart of Times Square.
The ad comes as Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest provider of abortions – is under investigation by several congressional committees. A series of undercover videos has been gradually released over the past several months exposing the abortion business’ apparent practices of selling the body parts of unborn babies and changing the position of babies during abortions in order to harvest intact organs.
“The atrocities that Planned Parenthood has committed deserve the widest stage possible and we are bringing the message that they betray women to one of the biggest in the world – Times Square,” Kristin Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, tells Breitbart News.
“Planned Parenthood preys on vulnerable women, telling them they can’t parent their child or place their child for adoption, and saying they must have an abortion to solve their ‘problem,’” she continues. “That is not empowerment but rather a betrayal and an affront to the power of femininity.”
Hawkins says her group’s ad will be viewed by thousands in Times Square.
“By putting this ad front and center in the middle of New York City – where 37% of all pregnancies end in abortion – we are giving notice to Planned Parenthood that we are on their turf and we want to reach those women before they do,” she asserts. “And we hope [Planned Parenthood president] Cecile Richards sees our ad on her way to work in New York City.”
