September, 2015. Supporters of Planned Parenthood rally in Monument Square, Portland, Maine and GRR is there. Following the publication of videos that attempt to show Planned Parenthood profiting from the legal sale of fetal tissue to research institutions, rallies across the United States bring citizens together who stand with Planned Parenthood. The fraudulent videos have been used to justify defunding this essential provider of healthcare services in several states and there is a movement to deprive Planned Parenthood of federal funds as well.
This campaign of defamation has been unmasked as just the latest in an ongoing effort to deprive millions of women, their partners, and families of healthcare services. Hundreds of people rallied in Portland as thousands gathered nationwide to defend Planned Parenthood and demand continued support for sexual and reproductive healthcare.
