More than 10 protests of Planned Parenthood are planned across Michigan on Feb. 11 to call for the end of federal funding to the clinics.

But supporters of Planned Parenthood are planning counter-protests at the same time, calling attention to the numerous health services that assist millions of women and men every year.

The anti-Planned Parenthood rallies are part of a nationwide protest to defund the thousands of clinics across the country over abortion services.

Supporters of Planned Parenthood point out that a majority of the services are not related to abortion. The affordable services range from cancer screenings to prenatal care.

Here are the locations and times of the protests and counter-protests:
