Pregnancy Center Buys Former Abortion Biz, Will Make It a Memorial for Aborted Babies

Texas pro-abortion groups are furious after learning that a pro-life pregnancy center bought a former abortion facility in McAllen, Texas.

The Texas Tribune reports the former Whole Woman’s Health building in downtown McAllen was an abortion facility for nearly 50 years until the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June.

Now, Texas protects unborn babies from abortion again, and pro-life organizations like the McAllen Pregnancy Center are working to expand support services for pregnant and parenting families.

In October, the pro-life organization purchased the property with potential plans to serve more mothers and babies and create a memorial for the thousands of unborn babies who were aborted there, according to the report.

For its life-saving efforts, however, the organization has come under attack. A pro-abortion group, South Texans for Reproductive Justice, also had wanted to buy the property, and its former owner, Whole Woman’s Health CEO Amy Hagstrom Miller, said she never would have sold it to the pro-life organization if she had known.

Miller shut down her four abortion facilities in Texas after the Supreme Court issued its Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling in June. Texas now protects unborn babies by banning abortions, and thousands of lives already have been saved.


Miller told the Tribune that she thought she had sold the McAllen building to a group of doctors; but only after the sale did she learn that the doctors planned to give the building to the pregnancy center.

Furious, Miller claimed she was “duped,” and maligned pro-life advocates as “bad people.”

“We feel very sorry we sold our clinic to some apparently bad people,” she said.

Miller has made money for decades killing unborn babies in elective abortions, but she described her life-destroying work as “sacred” in the interview.

In contrast, the McAllen Pregnancy Center provides free, compassionate and caring support to help mothers choose life for their babies. According to its website, the organization provides medical care for pregnancy and sexual health services, counseling, parenting classes, baby supplies and post-abortion healing support.

Pro-life pregnancy centers have become a target of the pro-abortion movement because they are effective in stopping abortions and helping families in need. A recent study from the University of North Carolina found almost 30 percent of women who visited a pregnancy center were less likely to abort their unborn babies.

Their free, compassionate outreach to mothers in need also takes money away from the billion-dollar abortion industry. According to an analysis by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, pregnancy resource centers have helped save more than 800,000 unborn babies from abortion since 2016. The research found U.S. pregnancy resource centers served about 2 million people in 2019, providing more than 730,000 pregnancy tests, nearly half a million ultrasounds, 1.3 million packs of diapers and more than 2 million baby outfits, all for free.
