(Worthy News) - Anti-abortion groups are planning a coordinated, nationwide protest in front of Planned Parenthood clinics later in August, in an effort to ramp up pressure on the group for its involvement in obtaining aborted fetal tissue, the Washington Examiner reported.

Around 40 groups have agreed to participate so far, including national organizations such as March for Life, the Family Research Council and Americans United for Life, along with smaller regional and state activist groups.

Their plan is to organize protests by abortion opponents outside local Planned Parenthood affiliate clinics around the country from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22. Three groups organizing the event will provide banners that say "Planned Parenthood sells baby parts" followed by the hashtag #PPSellsBabyParts. [ Source ]

White House calls Planned Parenthood videos 'fraudulent,' rejects calls to strip funding

The White House described undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials selling fetal tissue as "fraudulent" Thursday and said President Obama will reject efforts to strip federal funding from the organization, setting up yet another potential shutdown showdown for September.

Senators will vote early next week on a bill to defund the organization, though that's likely to fail. But some Republicans are already vowing to try to use the annual spending deadline of Sept. 30 to force the issue, saying they won't vote for any spending bills that include money for Planned Parenthood.

Congressional Democrats said they'll block any bills that remove money for the organization, and with the White House rising to defend Planned Parenthood, the stalemate could result in another showdown similar to the 2013 fight over Obamacare that left the government shuttered for more than two weeks.
