Planned Parenthood Opens Houston Abortion Business, Largest in Nation

Houston, TX (LifeNews.com) — Planned Parenthood, yesterday, officially opened its massive new Houston regional headquarters in what is considered the largest abortion business in the nation. Planned Parenthood of Houston’s new "super center" abortion facility is equipped to do abortions that officials say will be done on babies through 19 weeks into pregnancy.

The abortion center is housed in a former bank building that is a 78,000 square-foot facility.

The new Planned Parenthood in a stairstep-shaped building will be the main headquarters for 35 counties in Texas and Louisiana.

Bryan Kemper of Stand True Ministries, a youth-oriented pro-life group, commented on the news.

"Houston, Texas now holds the shame of hosting the country’s largest baby killing factory. Planned Parenthood is opening a seven-floor" abortion center, he said.

Kemper complains that Planned Parenthood is, once again, targeting minorities as the abortion center "was built in the middle of four predominately Hispanic and black neighborhoods."

Kemper complained the abortion facility was opened "right in the middle of a minority area and is celebrated as a great thing for the community."

Last year, Planned Parenthood centers in the Houston area performed an estimated seven-thousand abortions, something Kemper says should cause grief for the residents of southeast Texas.

"Our hearts are broken for the women who will be lied to and told they have nothing but a blob of tissue growing in them. We weep for the fathers who have been convinced that the best thing for them to do is to have the ‘pregnancy terminated,’" he said.

"America continues to hold onto their blindfolds and once again return to the regurgitated vomit of lies Planned Parenthood is feeding them. We have allowed the world’s largest child-killing organization to basically become the Walmart of abortion with these new ‘Abortion Super-centers,’" Kemper said.

"We hope and pray the people of Houston will not take this lying down and show up by the tens of thousands in protest until this death camp must shut its doors forever," Kemper concluded.
