Women Speak Out Bus Tour Makes Headlines!

From March 7-10, former Congresswoman and SBA List Votes Have Consequences Project Director Marilyn Musgrave and Live Action President Lila Rose hit the road on an 11-stop grassroots tour to defund Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution (CR).

The “Women Speak Out: Defund Planned Parenthood” media tour thanked Members of Congress who stood up for women, young girls and taxpayers with their votes for Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) amendment to deny all taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood through September.  The campaign also visit the districts of representatives who voted against the amendment.

Following the tour announcement from SBA List and Live Action, Planned Parenthood launched their own "Truth Tour." The dueling bus tours garnered national media attention.
