Thousands Protest Planned Parenthood in Houston

 Via Steven Ertlet:

Thousands
of pro-life advocates joined together to protest the massive new abortion business in Houston, Texas that appears to be the largest abortion facility of its kind in the nation. This six-story Planned Parenthood abortion "super center" is located in the middle of four minority neighborhoods.

The pro-life advocates -- representing people of all races -- decried Planned Parenthood for relocating to a former bank building next to three predominantly Hispanic and one African-American neighborhood.

Local pro-life advocates said they didn't want a giant abortion business in their backyard.

From The Houston Chronicle:

Thousands of people from across the country are protesting at anti-abortion rally this morning near the site of a large Planned Parenthood facility on the Gulf Freeway in Houston.

The protesters are gathering for a prayer march targeting the facility which they describe as an "abortion supercenter."

I was there and it was absolutely astounding how many people were there. I am estimating between 8 and 10 THOUSAND.

This raw video from one of the helicopters puts it in perspective:

Hello Jean,

I thought you'd like to post about the St. Louis effort for Life. You can see a multimedia presentation on the St. Louis Review website. You can see it at: Prayers for Life: Respect Life Mass and procession.

Thanks for helping us get the word out!
