LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)-- Pro-life advocates voiced their concerns in a nationwide protest over Planned Parenthood. Lafayette is one of five places in Indiana where protests were held, Saturday.
Protesters stood on the sidewalk in front of the Planned Parenthood building.
Members from ProtestPP were handing out posters to those who wanted to join. Signs included messages against services offered by Planned Parenthood.
Pastor Derin Stidd said the goal was to inform people about what they believe goes on inside of Planned Parenthood.
"This is to let the world know that little human beings are having their lives taken away inside this building," Stidd said. "Christians need to be involved in this kind of work and this is a part of loving our neighbor and so that is the just of what I will be talking about."
ProtestPP Leader Patricia Cole said there are alternative solutions.
"They tell women they can't do certain things if they have their baby and our mission is to tell women they can do certain things," Cole said. "I've heard stories of women who had their children and finish school and all kinds of other things."
The protesters said they will continue to express their first amendment rights. Stidd said he wants this to start a conversation without causing a disruption.
