Demonstrators lined Liberty Avenue this morning protesting Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, supporters of Planned Parenthood are rallying to show solidarity for the nonprofit organization, which provides a variety of reproductive health services in addition to abortion.

Across the street, only three people counter protested.

"We know that in this country 7 out of 10 people believe Roe V. Wade should be the law of the land", said Chelly Hegan, President and CEO of Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood.

"My point of view is not to argue one way or another, but to stand behind defunding Planned Parenthood", Hornell resident David Martin explained. "It doesn't make any sense to me, just because they're dependent upon the mother", says pro-life supporter, Phillip Kempf. Across our state, Planned Parenthood health centers, like Allentown Medical Center, serve more than 90,000 women and men per year. It also receives government reimbursements for contraception services from another source.
