Washington, DC (27 June 2008) - A Wal-Mart parking lot in Richland, Washington is the latest front-line in the battle against abortion-giant, Planned Parenthood.
At the request of hundreds of pro-lifers, the store cancelled an event in which Planned Parenthood would pass out information in the lot June 27.
American Life League sent out a press release June 26 to pro-lifers across the country informing them of this latest Planned Parenthood encroachment into neighborhood retailers.
“It’s hard enough for parents to safeguard their children from Planned Parenthood’s pervasive sexualized propaganda,” said Marie Hahnenberg, a researcher with American Life League. “They shouldn’t have to worry about exposing their kids to Planned Parenthood’s aggressive agenda even in Wal-Mart’s parking lot.”
Local protests were led by Jim Toth, pro-life chairman of the Knight of Columbus for the state of Washington, and after reportedly hundreds of calls and e-mails, the store decided to cancel the event.
“We thank Wal-Mart for taking a stand against Planned Parenthood,” Hahnenberg continued. “In the spirit of Sam Walton, Wal-Mart has put the best interest of its customers first and they are to be commended for their decision. We’d also like to especially congratulate Jim and the Knights of Columbus, St. Joseph Council in Kennewick, Washington, as well as the hundreds of pro-lifers across the country who responded with calls, prayers, and support.”

From an email alert from American Life League
Dozens of black pastors and pro-life advocates converged on Capitol Hill Thursday to protest outside the Democratic and Republican National Headquarters because of what they claimed was a silence on “racist” abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
Abortion, they said, has hit black communities hard. Eighty percent of Planned Parenthood facilities are in minority neighborhoods, and nearly 40 percent of all black babies are aborted every year, according to surveys – a statistic that black pro-lifers say is no accident...
