“Hey hey, ho ho, Planned Parenthood has got to go,” Brad Baumgarten chanted at an Aug. 18 rally in front of Sen. Claire McCaskill’s St. Louis office. The #WomenBetrayed Speak Out rally was one of many across the country calling on legislators to defund Planned Parenthood.

In 2013, Planned Parenthood's net profit was $127 million.

It makes the case to support federal funding of Planned Parenthood tough to swallow.

"Let them support themselves like any other business," said Reagan Nielsen, who led the second #WomenBetrayed Speak Out rally outside Sen. Claire McCaskill's St. Louis office Aug. 18. About 50 people attended; after several people spoke, participants filed inside McCaskill's office to deliver signed letters asking her to defund Planned Parenthood.
