In an Oct. 28 statement Karen Garnett expressed the Catholic Pro-Life Committee’s “deep disappointment” that a late-term abortion facility would again be operating in Dallas. She reported the last late-term abortion clinic had closed 14 months previously.
She explained that Boyd’s new clinic is registered as an ambulatory surgical center and “equipped to kill innocent unborn children through 24 weeks gestation.”
“God, have mercy on us,” she prayed.
Garnett reported that there are five total “killing centers” in Dallas.
“We will continue to pray and work, peacefully and legally, for Dallas to be free of these five terrible ‘wounds in our city,’ where the innocent blood of more than 11,000 unborn children is shed each year.”
Professing her group’s commitment to an “abortion-free Dallas,” she explained that the new facility will not provide access for sidewalk counselors to speak with mothers arriving for abortions. Counselors at other clinics have helped save “thousands of lives” over the past 12 years, Garnett reported.
She said the Catholic Pro-Life Committee will work with churches, businesses and residents of the area to try to save the unborn and to offer “help and hope” to their mothers.
“We are calling on people of faith from all over Dallas and the surrounding suburbs to join with us in a renewed, massive prayer and public witness effort against this grave evil in our community,” she added, asking for prayers for Dr. Boyd, his wife, all his clinic staff, and those at other Dallas abortion facilities.
Claiming that the average age of abortionists in America is 72, she added a prayer that younger doctors continue to avoid the abortion industry.
“Deliver us, Lord, from the evil of abortion,” her statement concluded.
