PHOENIX (KSAZ) -
Planned Parenthood has been under attack recently as several videos have come out alleging that the organization is performing abortions and selling the remains for profit, and acting unethically, possibly in violation of the law.
The claims have been denied by the organization who insists the producers of the video, Center for Medical Progress, are using carefully edited clips to spread a false message, and that Planned Parenthood follows the law.
Now a nationwide effort is set to happen this weekend to hold protests in front of Planned Parenthood locations, and a counter-protest is also in the works.
In Phoenix, the protest will take place at the new Planned Parenthood Arizona HQ at 5651 N 7th Street in Phoenix starting at 9 a.m. Saturday.
