Prayer March against Planned Parenthood Abortion Super Center
Since my last post about the abortion super center being built by Planned Parenthood of Houston, the weekly prayer vigils have continued right alongside the construction of what will be the second largest abortion facility in the world. With the largest in China, this late term abortion clinic will be the largest not only in the United States, but also in the Western Hemisphere.
What has changed recently is the attention this Planned Parenthood expansion is receiving nationwide. As this late term abortion clinic nears completion, people all over the country are standing up to notice what is being built in our backyard.
According to CNSNews, a coalition of pro-life advocates and religious leaders are holding a prayerful march and silent siege in Houston on January 18th. Both events will begin at the Catholic Charismatic Center, just blocks away from the 78,000 square foot Planned Parenthood super clinic, around 9 a.m. on MLK day and participants will silently march towards the almost completed monstrosity.
Visit Bound4Life, TexasFamilies, TheCall and the Road to Houston for information on many of the issues concerning this facility, such as the specific location of the clinic and the questionable intentions of Planned Parenthood. The outrage over this late term abortion clinic is not simply about being anti-abortion, but also focuses on Planned Parenthood’s business practices, what they stand to gain financially from the unprecedented growth in abortion rates this new clinic will bring to Houston, as well as the poor women being targeted.
For more detailed information on the Silent Prayer March, visit organizer, TheCall for times, locations and details. Also included is information for the Prayer Rally on Sunday, January 17th at 6 p.m. at Grace Community Church – South Campus.
If you are in the area, join me and thousands of others as we stand before this monstrosity and lift our voices in prayer for the communities at risk, the women in crisis and the lives of the unborn.
