COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Over a dozen pro-life demonstrators gathered along Veterans Parkway in Columbus Saturday holding signs asking for the defunding of Planned Parenthood.

Demonstrators stood with signs that read "Planned Parenthood lies to You," as well as displaying photos depicting abortion procedures.

Organizers say through this demonstration; they are hoping to draw attention to the inhumane matter.

"I hope that we'll persuade them, especially with the graphic photos, that they will see that, and not just take our word for it that abortion kills a child, but that they'll believe own eyes. Two, that they'll see that their fellow citizens care enough about this to come out on a Saturday morning and to stand up for the lives of others even when our lives ourselves is not in danger,” said Lincoln Brandenburg, Vice President Chattahoochee United For Life

The demonstration was not only in Columbus; hundreds of other cities also held similar events around the country.
