The incredible news I received from the Houston Coalition for Life troubled me so deeply that I want to share every word of it with you. The headline is enough to drive one into a state of apoplexy, and reads:
Houston will be the site of the largest freestanding abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere
Then we get to the part that is really incredible … incredibly evil:
As most of you are very well aware, our local Planned Parenthood is expanding and purchased a very large building at 4600 Gulf Freeway a little over a year ago. This expansion is being done to comply with Texas law stating that an abortion of a pregnancy of 16 weeks or more has to be done at an ambulatory surgical center or hospital licensed to perform the abortion.
Imagine an abortion mill that is being constructed according to the specifics applied to the type of places where sick people are helped and hurting people are cared for so that they recover. This is the same as suggesting that the gas chambers in Germany and Poland needed to be in compliance with the hospitals in the same communities. How can Americans be so blind? But the picture gets worse. Please read on.
What we didn’t realize is that when this move takes place, which is projected for the fall of 2008, Houston will have the notoriety of having the largest freestanding abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere. Planned Parenthood of Houston & Southeast Texas plans to open a multimillion-dollar “flagship” abortion center just outside the gates of the University of Houston’s main campus. This six-story building is 78,000 square feet, and the ambulatory surgical center will take up the entire third floor. This is where unborn babies up to 25 weeks will be aborted. This is more than half way through a woman’s pregnancy! We know that babies born after 24 weeks have a very good chance of survival.
There is no question about it! Texans must take a stand against the opening of this late-term abortuary, peacefully and legally. If you are reading this and you are in Texas, please contact Houston Coalition for Life by calling 713.395.1330 or e-mail .
Planned Parenthood will not stop building the mega-centers and this is part of the reason why the work of our own program, Stop Planned Parenthood International
is so very important. Let’s cut the dragon down to size and stomp it into the ground, one prayer and one action at a time! When hearts are changed and minds are opened to the truth, this devious, diabolical organization will go the way of all evil. Let us strive for that goal.
