Thousands are expected to protest outside Planned Parenthood locations across the country this weekend as part of the #ProtestPP coalition.
The campaign, organized by national anti-abortion groups, are calling for public protest in response to the undercover videos released by abortion opponents in July, purporting to show Planned Parenthood executives negotiating the sale of fetal parts.
The Planned Parenthood clinic in Pullman was firebombed in September and will resume offering health services Oct. 12 at a temporary location, 745 N. Grand Ave. #108 in Pullman.
