FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Supporters of Planned Parenthood demonstrated in eight Indiana cities, including right here in Fort Wayne.

The protestors lined west Jefferson holding signs hoping Governor Mitch Daniels will change his mind and not sign a bill which defunds Planned Parenthood at the state level.

Jessica Marquart of Planned Parenthood says, “The defunding bill, could cause more unattended pregnancies, which will cause more abortions, which will cause the state to spend more money in the long run.”

Defunding Planned Parenthood is also being considered on the federal level.
