Houston, Texas, Jan 19, 2010 / 20:03 pm
On Martin Luther King Day, thousands of people, including nationally renowned pro-life leaders came from across the U.S. to protest the future six-story home of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Houston, Texas.
The building, formerly belonging to a bank and shaped like a cash register, will be transformed into a 78,000 square foot clinic and is expected to be one of the largest in the nation. It will also include a surgical wing capable of providing late-term abortions.
“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,” warned Tony Perkins, Family Research Council President on Monday, speaking on the wider implications of the facility renovation.
“Already, Planned Parenthood is counting the millions, if not billions, of dollars the organization will receive under the current Obama plan,” he charged.
