Thousands March Against New Planned Parenthood Abortion Business in Houston

Houston, TX (LifeNews.com) -- Thousands of pro-life advocates joined together to protest the massive new abortion business in Houston, Texas that appears to be the largest abortion facility of its kind in the nation. This six-story Planned Parenthood abortion "super center" is located in the middle of four minority neighborhoods.

The pro-life advocates -- representing people of all races -- decried Planned Parenthood for relocating to a former bank building next to three predominantly Hispanic and one African-American neighborhood.

Family Research Council president Tony Perkins was on hand to deliver an address.

"Planned Parenthood's Houston abortion super center will most likely become the prototype for so-called 'preventative care' centers under President Obama's health care plan," he warned.

He said that the government-run health care restructuring bill in Congress must be stopped or Planned Parethood will get more more for more centers.

"Make no mistake about it, the present health care bill gives bureaucrats in Washington great discretion in how they dole out funds and to what programs. Most of these decisions will be made by Kathleen Sebelius, the former governor of Kansas who has a record that made her the most pro-abortion governor in America," he said.

Local pro-life advocates said they didn't want a giant abortion business in their backyard.

"I grew up over here in this neighborhood," said Vickie Soliz of Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle. "That building used to be the old Sterling Bank. Nobody knew what they were putting in there. They wouldn't do this in Kingwood or The Woodlands."

Lou Engle, president of The Call, the group that spearheaded the protest, talked with LifeNews.com about the event.

"Planned Parenthood is targeting these minority pro-family communities, both for their finances and the restriction of their populations," he said. Full article.
