On Monday, January 18, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas will join other national pro-life organizations to protest the building of Planned Parenthood’s 78,000 square foot abortion facility in Houston, scheduled for completion this fall. The clinic, with one floor devoted solely to late-term abortions, will be one of the world’s largest, second only to those in China.
America’s competition with China is good for commerce, but not human lives.
Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was explicit in her disdain for minorities, calling them “human weeds.” In accordance with the founding mother’s original intent, the new clinic is centered within four minority neighborhoods.
The January 18 protest, led by Lou Engle of The Call to Conscience, is appropriately scheduled on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
CWA of Texas has a dream that all children will be safe in their mother’s womb, regardless of race, defect or profit. We will not stand back and watch a modern-day death chamber redefine the Houston skyline.
“Parenthood tries to deny its long-held goal to target minorities for abortion,” said Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America. “This mega-abortion mill exposes the true motivations of Planned Parenthood and their supporters. It is centered smack in the middle of minority neighborhoods with one floor set aside for late-term abortions. The message: once a pregnant woman walks through those doors, no unborn child no matter how old is safe from Planned Parenthood’s knives.
Government officials and Planned Parenthood plotted together to make Houston an abortion capital of the nation.”
The “Silent Siege” Justice March begins at the Catholic Charismatic Center, 1949 Cullen Blvd., Houston, with Praise, Worship, and national Speakers at 9:30 a.m., with march through the adjoining neighborhood beginning at 11:30 a.m.
