Planned Parenthood Building Huge New Abortion Clinic in New Orleans

It may soon become much easier to get an abortion in the Big Easy, as the nation’s largest abortion clinic chain is planning to build a massive new regional abortion facility in New Orleans.

“New Orleans is a vibrant city full of great culture and heritage, and sadly, the city with the highest violent crime rate in the U.S. New Orleans is a city in need of peace,” says Louisiana Right to Life in an email alert tot its members. “Now, the struggle for peace has taken another turn. Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast plans to build now and open in 2014 a 7,000 square foot complex on Claiborne Avenue.”

The pro-life group said the new abortion business will be located at 4636 S. Claiborne near Napoleon Avenue and, according to Planned Parenthood’s fundraising materials, the Claiborne facility will perform abortions, unlike the current PP Magazine Street office.

“We anticipate the facility will become a regional abortion center, drawing in women from across the southeast,” the group added. “As the facts show, more Planned Parenthood equals more abortion. PP, the nation’s largest abortion business, performed 333,964 abortions in 2011; 9 out of 10 pregnant women who enter PP’s doors choose abortion; and for every 145 abortions, PP facilitates only 1 adoption referral.”

“We anticipate that abortions in New Orleans will increase because of this new facility. This is not the future New Orleans needs,” Louisiana Right to Life said. “To answer this challenge, we are building the NOLA Needs Peace Coalition of churches and individuals committed to protecting life on our streets and in the womb. Look for more action steps soon from our coalition.”

“New Orleans faces many pressing issues that together we must continue to address and solve. But Planned Parenthood bringing more abortions through a regional abortion center will not solve our problems. It will only create more,” it added.

In January, Louisiana was named the most pro-life state in the country based on its pro-life laws on abortion. Last year, pro-life Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal signed SB 766, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy based on the science showing unborn children feel pain at that point.

At one time, New Orleans had seven fully-operating abortion clinics, but the Louisiana city went down to just one in December when an abortion clinic closed. Pastor Dale Sochia of King Jesus Ministries in Boutte emailed LifeNews to confirm that the Midtown Medical abortion clinic was expected to be closing, following the death of abortion practitioner Kiat Varnishung.

Is it any wonder that New Orleans has so many murders every year? There is no respect for human life beginning with life in the womb.

If they build it at 4636 S. Claiborne, it will flood.

Interestingly there is a large church just a few doors away from this site and another down the block. A playground is also pretty close.

Forgive me, but am I wrong for not caring that liberals aborted up to 50 million potential Democrats over the past 40 years? Anymore I tell the libs I come into contact with that I’m just fine with them aborting THEIR kids and, in fact, I’d make private donations to do it if it were not already coming out of my pocket. I just want to ban abortions for Christians and conservatives.

For some odd reason that pi$$es them off.

I guess I’m thinking of it more along the lines of schadenfreud.

If I said I wanted to kill 50 million liberal voters the Democrats would get all uppity about it. What about if I just quietly thank God that the Democrats killed off the very people who otherwise would have given them virtual one-party rule of my country?

It is still inconceivable to me that anyone would willingly kill their children. But if they hadn’t done this to their children then there’d be no chance for my children in a godless, one-party state.

I think you really should discuss this with Jesus. Seriously.

I truly believe that Jesus of the Second Coming will deal with the rest of the liberals and He will mete out a terrible justice for their sins.

Perhaps the next rinse cycle will last a bit longer?

Liberals actually do celebrate the execution of unborn liberals as an act of ‘empowerment’ by the mother. There are so places on the net where you can find celebrations of abortion especially as late term as possible. This is part of the liberal psyche. Secularism is all about celebrating whatever excites you right now. It has a near total lack of the inter-generational linkages that build strong social units and enduring societies. The degree to which Americans embrace much of the secularist materialist world view is one of the most chilling realities in contemporary American culture. This is literally an embrace of death through utter lack of caring as to what will happen to ones society and nation when one is gone. This is ‘after me the deluge’ nihilism made into an acceptable middlebrow pablum. It is poison in whatever form it is marketed in.

But they are replacing the murdered American babies with Hispanic illegals.

Quite the contrary. They care. They are very much for it.
