Amazingly, established Religious Right groups just keep running to link up with relative newcomer Lou Engle’s efforts. Yesterday, it was Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel announcing that he’d be joining Engle, Tony Perkins, Richard Land, Harry Jackson and others in protesting a new Planned Parenthood facility in Houston.
Today, it is Wendy Wright and Concerned Women for America announcing their participation as well:
On Monday, January 18, Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Texas will join other national pro-life organizations to protest the building of Planned Parenthood’s 78,000 square foot abortion facility in Houston. The clinic, with one floor devoted solely to late-term abortions, will be one of the world’s largest, second only to those in China.
“Planned Parenthood tries to deny its long-held goal to target minorities for abortion,” said Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America. “This mega-abortion mill exposes the true motivations of Planned Parenthood and their supporters. It is centered smack in the middle of minority neighborhoods with one floor set aside for late-term abortions. The message: once a pregnant woman walks through those doors, no unborn child — no matter how old — is safe from Planned Parenthood’s knives.
“Government officials and Planned Parenthood plotted together to make Houston an abortion capital of the nation.”
The three-hour Silent Siege March begins at 11 a.m. at the Catholic Charismatic Center, 1949 Cullen Blvd., Houston. Hettinger is encouraging every pro-life Texan to join CWA of Texas for the event: “Houston, we have a serious problem in which lives are at stake. Please join us in the march and stand united as Texans for life.”
