The new center at 6400 John Ryan Drive is being described as a “state-of-the-art” abortion facility which, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, “will include a larger family planning center, an ambulatory surgical care center and offices.”
While the abortion giant is excited, the local community is not, as residents told the Dallas newspaper. In fact the location of the center was a secret for some time. The paper reports on local reaction:
Michael Dean, senior pastor at Travis Avenue Baptist Church, said he and other individuals heard rumors for months that Planned Parenthood was building a new facility. However, it wasn’t until ground was broken that they discovered the location, which is next to the Gladney Center for Adoption, he said. The new center will also be in the vicinity of Trinity Valley School, he added.
“Our concern is this will become a mega-center for Planned Parenthood,” Dean said. “Our prayer would be that they do not perform abortions at this facility.”
Al Meredith, senior pastor at Wedgwood Baptist Church, said he believes Planned Parenthood moved quietly on the project to avoid opposition. There was no sign at the site indicating what was being built, he said, and permits filed with the city listed a Dallas management company. Dean said that he and others tried making inquiries to Planned Parenthood about the new facility but that questions went unanswered.
“They seemed to do this really surreptitiously,” Meredith said. “People have a right to know what is going on.”
