Contractor Leaves Job After Learning It’s Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is in the process of building a new mega- abortion facility next to an adoption agency in Forth Worth, Texas.

The new center at 6400 John Ryan Drive is being described as a “state-of-the-art” facility which, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, “will include a larger family planning center, an ambulatory surgical care center and offices.” Construction began last week and the facility is set to open next year.

However on subcontractor hired for the job didn’t learn he would be pouring concrete for the new building for the nation’s biggest abortion business until just hours before he was slated to begin work. Once he learned of Planned Parenthood’s involvement, he quit.

The unnamed contractor, who told his general contractor that abortion violates his religious views, is one reason why the head of the local abortion business told WFAA that Planned Parenthood is trying to keep its name under wraps.

The president of Planned Parenthood of North Texas said there’s a reason the organization’s name is not on the project.

“From the beginning, we intended to be public with this project,” Ken Lambrecht said. “We wanted to choose the right time, so that our contractors wouldn’t have to endure the harassment and intimidation that Planned Parenthood staffers and patients must endure on a day-to-day basis.”

Lambrecht said Planned Parenthood helped provide more than 6,000 abortions in North Texas in 2010.

Pastor Al Meredith of nearby Wedgwood Baptist Church told the news outlet that construction workers have a right to know they may be working to build a business that destroys the lives of women and children.

“And that way people can act according to their convictions,” Meredith said.
