A group of anti-abortion activists rallied outside of the Orlando offices of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson Tuesday urging them to take actions against Planned Parenthood. 

The group, known as Women Betrayed, lists on its website members of Congress who have "benefited" from Planned Parenthood's sale of fetal tissue for medical research. Florida's list includes seven Democratic lawmakers that the group urges its members to call and demand they publicly denounce Planned Parenthood and vote to defund it. 

Nelson responded by offering for his Orlando staff to meet privately with protestors, the Orlando Sentinel reported, and Grayson said he was glad to hear from constituents, but the protest would not "change my strong support for Planned Parenthood and a woman’s right to choose."
