The location of Planned Parenthood’s new mega-abortion clinic in San Antonio, Texas, was kept a closely guarded secret until October 11, when Planned Parenthood of South Texas CEO Jeffrey Hons gave a reporter from San Antonio Express-News a tour of the facility, now in the latter stages of construction.
The existing 22,000 sq ft building, located at 2140 Babcock Road, is being renovated at a projected cost of $6.5 million, up from $5 million just 7 months ago. Love those overruns.
Yesterday, pro-life activists from Created Equal and Love of Truth Ministries were able to enter the two-story building, around which there were no “No Trespassing” signs or fence, to conduct their own inspection, with video camera in hand. Here’s what they saw…
CE’s Mark Harrington, who narrated the video, told me he almost vomited during the walk-through, particularly on the second floor, where all the “killing rooms,” as he called them, are located.
According to Harrington, a Planned Parenthood executive on the premises became visibly agitated when spotting he and his videographer exiting the building. She instructed a construction site manager to shoo the pro-lifers off the property. That’s who you see at the end of the video.
It appeared to Harrington the mega-abortion mill is at least a month from completion.
Pro-lifers are going to make that month difficult. This week they will begin exposing and confronting contractors as well as leafletting the neighborhood. They already began picketing the premises yesterday.
They will also pull as many permits as they can to inspect for irregularities.

Hons bragged to the San Antonio-Express News “an outcome that backers of HB2 probably didn’t envision” was Planned Parenthood’s expansion will enable it to commit late-term abortions. Currently, Planned Parenthood only kills babies in the first trimester.
Planned Parenthood South TX CEO says new mega-abortion mill in San Antonio will kill 2,800 babies/yr.

Hons also credited the new pro-life law with a bump in the number of abortions his affiliate will now commit, “about 2,800… a year – an increase of 1,000 over the number provided two years ago, before HB2.”
In reality, any increase in abortion trade is due to Planned Parenthood’s heavy-handed monopoly of the market in Texas.
Planned Parenthood had to stop committing abortions at its current location at 104 Babcock Road on September 1, because that building did not meet ambulatory surgical center requirements. Until this building is completed, “Planned Parenthood has leased space at a local surgical center to perform abortions,” according to the paper.
LifeNews.com Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
