DENVER -- A sizeable crowd gathered together outside of the Planned Parenthood in East Denver to protest the non-profit organization, in the wake of controversial undercover videos released online.
Protesters held signs and signed petitions calling for the end to federal funding for the health care provider. Among the crowd Saturday was Denver's Archbirshop, Samuel J. Aquila.
"It's wonderful to see this many people out here and especially the people walking around praying and being very peaceful," said Aquila.
This was just one of the 300 protests happening at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country.
Planned parenthood executives say the organization has done nothing wrong, arguing the videos, which show personnel selling fetal tissue for profit, were unfairly edited.
They say the people behind the protests have a clear agenda: To ban abortion and block women from access to reproductive health care.AlertMe
