DENVER (CBS4)– Hundreds of protesters gathered outside a Planned Parenthood center in Denver on Saturday morning.
Several say they felt compelled to act after a California group recently released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing aborted fetal organs it provides for research.
One of those videos was purportedly taken in Denver.
“For the first time millions of Americans are seeing the reality of abortion and they’re horrified by it and I not only hope that Planned Parenthood be de-funded but that people realize why are we doing this?” said rally organizer Tom Uebbing.
Planned Parenthood says allegations it profits from the practice are fabricated accusations from abortion opponents.
“These rallies are meant to intimidate and harass our patients, who rely on our nonprofit health centers for basic, preventive health care,” Eric Ferrero, vice president of Planned Parenthood, said in a statement. “The people behind these protests have a clear political agenda: They want to ban abortion, and block women and men from accessing basic reproductive health care.”
