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 LifeNews.com 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.
