Planned Parenthood Violates Building Codes to Build Abortion Biz Next to School in Nation’s Capital

The Planned Parenthood abortion business gave the pro-life movement an early Christmas present this year when it closed down its only abortion facility in the nation’s capital — just blocks form some of the most well-known landmarks in Washington, D.C.

Planned Parenthood has faced a storm of public outrage after an undercover investigation revealed they were involved in the selling of aborted baby parts and potentially violating laws against partial-birth abortion.

Now, prominent pro-life activists tell that the abortion giant is building a new abortion facility in the District of Columbia, next to a charter school, and is reportedly violating building codes to do so. They are complaining to public officials and seeking support to hold Planned Parenthood accountable. The proposed abortion center is next to Two Rivers Public Charter School.

Washington, D.C. City officials promise to halt construction on new abortion center if Planned Parenthood is found to be violating building codes, they tell LifeNews.

“On Tuesday, pro-life activists visited the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs pointing out building code violations in Planned Parenthood’s construction project on 1225 4th St. NE Washington, D.C.,” pro-life activist Claire Chretien told LifeNews. “In those meetings, officials from that agency promised to send out inspectors on Wednesday to see if Planned Parenthood is involved in any code violations.”

Chretien said pro-life activists will hold a news conference on Wednesday, July 22, at 12:00 P.M 1225 4th St. NE Washington, D.C. at the new location of the Planned Parenthood abortion center. The group will also discuss the launch of a national campaign called Not In Our Town DC to stop the new Planned Parenthood abortion center from opening in the nation’s capital.

Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Pastor of Church on the Hill in Washington, D.C., released the following comment:

“We visited officials from the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs on Tuesday for the City of Washington, D.C.  We shared with them several building code violations we observed at the proposed location of a new Planned Parenthood abortion center.  The officials informed us they would send out an inspector Wednesday and if Planned Parenthood was in violation of any city codes the project would be shut down.
We are also announcing the launch of Not In Our Town DC, which is a national campaign to peacefully, publicly  and prayerfully work to ensure no Planned Parenthood abortion center opens in our nation’s capital.
Just as we would not want to see a new KKK chapter open in Washington, D.C. or an organization that supported human trafficking, we do not want an organization in our town that was founded by a racist and KKK supporter, deals in the selling and trafficking of aborted baby body parts, diminishes women and destroys innocent human life.
Our prayer is that Planned Parenthood would end up on the scrapheap of history like slavery, segregation and bigots like Bull Conner.  Our nation’s capital should be a place that embraces justice and human rights rather than violence.”
