Planned Parenthood is launching a summer initiative that will train thousands of volunteers to spread its pro-abortion manifesto.

“The Power of Pink” Planned Parenthood training will educate over 3,000 abortion advocates about the abortion organization’s mission and methods whereby volunteers can most effectively encourage others to ascribe to the pro-abortion philosophy. The program, which will train more volunteers in one fell swoop than the organization has ever been done before, will take place in Detroit in July, according to CNN.

Detroit is a “beacon for progressivism,” said Planned Parenthood National Organizing Director Kelley Robinson. “Being in Detroit is a really intentional thing for us,” she added.

“I’m just really pumped,” said Lilyana Prejo Vanegaf, a Planned Parenthood volunteer who excitedly awaits the training and is hopeful many others will join in her fervor.

The training comes after Planned Parenthood sued the Trump administration Wednesday following President Donald Trump’s unveiling of a new plan to roll back Title X’s Family Planning program funding. “Planned Parenthood is going to court to stop the Trump-Pence administration from trying to impose its ideology on people,” Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens said in a statement, CNN reported.

Planned Parenthood’s visible push comes amid an increase in pro-life advocacy and protests outside of abortion clinics and coincides with a number of measures signed into law or pending approval across the nation. “The [pro-life] protesters are feeling emboldened by the political environment and seeing what they could get away with,” National Abortion Federation President Vicki Saporta said, according to The Associated Press.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, a Republican, signed a measure into law Friday banning all abortions after fetal heartbeat is detected. A heartbeat typically manifests at around six weeks in pregnancy. The law will take effect July 1.

South Carolina nearly passed a law banning all abortions except those performed in the case of rape, incest and to save the mother’s life, but the bill died in the state’s senate.  (RELATED: Cecile Richards Leaves Behind Brutal Legacy As She Steps Down From Planned Parenthood)

Planned Parenthood has aborted 7,132,130 babies since Margaret Sanger’s founding of the abortion organization in 1916. Planned Parenthood doctors aborted more than 328,348 unborn babies between 2015-2016, and killed 6,803,782 unborn babies between 1978 and 2014, according to CNSNews.
