Planned Parenthood building 2A youth-oriented pro-life group is launching a campaign to sock it to Planned Parenthood. 

Students for Life has launched a national campaign to draw attention to Congress failing to defund Planned Parenthood.

Students for Life executive director Kristan Hawkins is spearheading the drive to hold the abortion mega-corporation and politicians to accountable.

"We're going to be going to mega-Planned Parenthood facilities in Aurora, Illinois, Denver, Colorado, St. Louis, Missouri," she says. "And we're also going to be going to key senators' offices talking about why the Senate should uphold its promise to defund Planned Parenthood."

Hawkins, Kristan (Students for Life)Students for Life collected more than a hundred thousand baby socks leading up to the first phase of the Sock it 2 Planned Parenthood campaign.

"Right now," she says, "some of the socks are touring college campuses showing students the enormity of Planned Parenthood's abortion business."

After the campaign, the socks will be donated to pro-life pregnancy centers to help moms.

The student organization wants pro-life senators not only to fulfill their promises to defund Planned Parenthood, but to remove abortion from health care because it's not health care.

The group is also urging Congress to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban abortions at 20 weeks.
