"Concerned citizens need to tell their friends and family to visit StopPlannedParenthood.com and to get involved as soon as possible."

 (Washington, DC)-STOPP International, a project of American Life League, announced today that it is launching a major education campaign to raise public awareness supported by an action center that helps citizens to "stop waste, fraud, and the abuse of public funds by Planned Parenthood and its inside-the-beltway supporters."

 "Our Defunding Planned Parenthood Action Center is the first to integrate short educational videos, current research, and up-to-the-moment news with user friendly technology that will help inform, motivate, and empower citizens to make a difference," said Johanna Dasteel, who headed the development of the action center over the last several months. "We are witnessing an explosion all across the country from average citizens who do not want to see Planned Parenthood get another penny of taxpayer money. Our action center will help those voices be heard."

Recently, there has been a growing call for a full Congressional investigation of Planned Parenthood. "President Obama defends millions in taxpayer subsidies to a corrupt organization like Planned Parenthood, but then threatens to cut off payments to seniors and veterans," added Dasteel.  

ALL also released a commentary and video, both titled Hiding Behind Hyde, explaining why the Hyde Amendment does little if anything to stop tax dollars from funding abortions as claimed.
