The primary sponsors of #ProtestPP are Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Created Equal and the Pro-Life Action League.

These three national activist organizations are joined by more than 60 state and national pro-life groups committed to exposing the truth about Planned Parenthood, and mobilizing the response of pro-life Americans to the baby parts scandal.
