HOUSTON, April 30, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Houston Pro-life groups are planning a huge prayer vigil today (Friday, April 30) in protest of Planned Parenthood's Gala celebration of the completion of the largest abortion facility in the western hemisphere. The 78,000-square foot facility, which has been constructed to perform late-term abortions, is scheduled to open on May 11.
In a press release the Houston Coalition for Life notes that the new facility will make Houston "the abortion capital of the southern part of the United States and South America. Viable unborn children will die in this facility with Planned Parenthood performing abortions through 25 weeks gestation (thats six months). Unborn children as early as 22 weeks gestation have been born and survived."
At 5:45pm on Friday a march will ensue from Annunciation Catholic Church at 1618 Texas St. to The Corinthian at 202 Fannin. Participants will gather around the outside of The Corinthian in prayer and leaders of local pro-life groups will speak about the deadly effects this huge expansion will have on Houston families.
With the opening of this late-term abortion center in Houston we will see the numbers of innocent unborn children who die through abortion dramatically rise, more mothers will be hurt psychologically, spiritually and physically and more families will be destroyed, said Christine Melchor the Executive Director of the Houston Coalition for Life.
We will continue will our campaign to witness to the value and dignity of every human life by having people in prayer and offering of alternatives to abortion outside of Planned Parenthoods new facility. We will stand witness to our commitment to value those who are most vulnerable in our nation, the unborn, said Melchor.

Unfortunately, that is the ONLY logical outcome.

The god, Moloch, will be present for the ribbon/umbilical cutting.
After which, he will move into his shining, new temple where devoted followers will come to worship him.
Wish we’d had more notice of this. I’m 2 hours away and would have liked to have attended. But, it’s too late now.
Yes, you’re right. The cost of admission is flesh, bone and
blood. God saved us from the heathen. His name is Jesus
To shamelessly coin another FReeper: The ancients worshiped nature and killed their babies. Today’s people worship nature and kill their babies. Nothing has changed.
The reason there were not more people there at the opening is becuase the media is in cohoots with PP and did not make much noise about it opening. They pretty much support it.
And - the Local churches - No longer (if ever) - speak out about that dreadful thing - abortion!! Much less ask their congregation to pray AT a local abortuary!
They forget that they are called to protect the ‘orphans and widows’ - and expose sin!
*** If every Christian church would go enmasse to an abortion clinic - Regularly - they would close down the baby death camps -in short order!
When Jesus overturned the tables in the temple - I wonder if these same churches would have kicked out Jesus for exposing the sin of the merchants in the church? What a radical thing to do! Perhaps He would have even been at an abortion clinic telling them all to “Repent - Come out of her!” Much as the churches should be doing!
Wishful thinking! It’ll never happen because many are just playing church!
I was there and there was a pretty good turnout, several hundred people who were very energetic. There was a news camera there as well.

"It is the duty of every patriot to protect his country from its government"
It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.
I wish I could join in the vigil. This is absolutely horrific!!
Did someone say moloch?
