Students for Life of America has collected over 200,000 baby socks for its #SockIt2PP campaign. Each sock represents one of the many lives taken by Planned Parenthood each year. The incredible display, which SFLA brought to Washington, D.C. in April, turns heads. Says SFLA president Kristan Hawkins:
There are few presentations I’ve seen as effective at getting young people to rethink their stance – whether they’re self-described as “pro-choice,” or just haven’t fully developed their beliefs on the life issue – as seeing our #SockIt2PP display.
That’s because when they see a mountain of baby socks, it’s easy to envision the little baby feet that should be wearing them if not for Planned Parenthood abortionists.
Before our April press conference, we were carrying boxes of the socks from our moving truck to the location on Capitol Hill. I told every person who walked by what we were doing. And no matter what their political affiliation, age, skin color, or gender, every single person was shocked.
But that mountain of baby socks, as gut-wrenching as it is, actually under-depicts the tragedy. According to its recently released annual report, Planned Parenthood committed 328,348 abortions in 2015. That means the #SockIt2PP display is short by 127,805 socks.
SFLA will continue to collect baby socks until they reach 328,348 or until Planned Parenthood is defunded. (Upon the conclusion of the campaign, they’ll be donated to families in need.) But the sooner you can send a sock the better, because SFLA just announced that #SockIt2PP is going on tour in the fall!
They’re taking #SockIt2PP to college campuses across the country. The locations haven’t been announced yet, but if past tours are any indication, this will reach tens or even hundreds of thousands of students. If you want viewers to understand the full scale of Planned Parenthood’s devastating abortion business, take the time to send a sock! You can also donate to the campaign.
