"There have been some peaceful discussions", said Shevaun Stocker, a Planned Parenthood supporter.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in our nation, performing over 320,000 abortions every year. "The vast majority of them are coming for basic health care, basic preventative health care, and that is what's at risk", Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a telephone interview Friday.

The entry noted that in 2011, after the state executive council voted not to renew a state contract with Planned Parenthood to provide Title X family planning services, the federal Department of Health and Human Services "issued a replacement grant, but there was significant disruption in the delivery of services, and for approximately three months, no Title X services were available to potential clients in a part of the state". "Should Congress continue trying to defund the group?" And without Planned Parenthood to turn to for their reproductive health care through Title X, many of these people may not have access to this care - including contraceptive care - at all.

The rule, which was introduced by the Obama Administration, would require states to use Title X health care funds to fund abortions through organizations like Planned Parenthood.

Other countries' leaders intend to meet March 2 to organize a new global abortion fund to fill the void left by the US funding withdrawal. "People are turning up at things that never used to turn up at things, and there's political activism, people who never used to get along very well who are now working on stuff together -I just saw two people who were political adversaries at one point, now working together".

After last November's election, the GOP-controlled Congress has discussed potentially cutting off Medicaid reimbursements to Planned Parenthood over its abortion services.

Andrea Peitsch, owner of South County Art Supply, said she feels compelled to hold the fundraiser since there have been threats of cutting federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

Although Magdylan does not want to provide abortion services in the new FQHCs, she wants to provide healthcare for all groups and members of the American population.

"They also have been touting the fact that their private donations have gone up significantly since the election". The Republican-led House voted a sweeping 230-188, according to USA Today. Obama's rule went into effect just two days before leaving office on January 18, but the House was able to dismiss the measure under the Congressional Review Act. They know that Planned Parenthood does not serve the best interests of American women and families. Anti-abortion protester Eva Muntaen and an abortion rights protester called out to each other.

Showing support was important to her, she said, as there were so many issues at stake, going beyond women's issues and including the separation of church and state.

Liberty Counsel represents Sandra Merritt, the journalist whose courageous undercover work exposed Planned Parenthood's barbaric practices of harvesting organs from babies and selling them to StemExpress and other organ procurement organizations for extreme profit.

Still, many Republican federal and state legislators argue that taxpayer money should not go toward organizations that perform a service that many of their constituents do not agree with, even if the funding doesn't go toward the service itself.

About 60 people attended the Stand With Planned Parenthood rally in the Virginia Commonwealth University Student Commons Plaza.
