I've reported previously on the massive pro-life protests and prayer vigils at a St. Paul, MN, Planned Parenthood abortion mill as well as PP's annual "Good Friday solidarity event."
Well, PP of MN, ND, and SD is closing that mill and building a 46,000 sq. ft., 3-story mega-mill in an industrial park.
Why now? According to StarTribune.com:
[Sarah] Stoesz [president and CEO of PP in MN], said PP is preparing for a possible increase in demand because of the new federal health care bill, which will add millions of people to insurance rolls starting in 2014. Many will be the lower-income and young adults that PP serves, she said. "We don't know exactly what health care reform will mean for our patients," she said. "But I anticipate that more people will access health care."
The new location was chosen "after a zip code analysis of where PP's patients come from," according to TwinCities.com, i.e., a "low-income minority community," writes our MN pro-life friend Sandy.
PP also chose the new spot to "provide more privacy for patients who now routinely have to walk past abortion foes who try to persuade them not to go into the clinic," according to StarTribune.com, i.e., ditch pro-life protesters.
PP's new mega-mill falls mid-range in size compared to other mega-mills built by PP in recent years:
Aurora, IL (2007): 22,000 sq ft
Sarasota, FL (2009): 23,000 sq ft
Portland, OR (February 2010): 40,000 sq ft
St. Paul, MN (to open December 2011): 46,000 sq ft
Denver, CO (2008): 50,000 sq ft
Houston, TX (to open fall 2010): 78,000 sq ft
Environmentalists will be happy to learn PP is going green! Buildings used to kill babies to save the planet will be eco-friendly! PP of MN's new chop shop will be LEED-certified, as was the Sarasota PP, eco-friendly video Link here! ...
“Soylent Green is people.” Can I say more??? I’m not trying to be glib here. This is frikkin’ sick. :(
Green on the outside and red on the inside. Its not the only issue it applies to. May G_d have mercy on us.
They’ve chosen which God they worship. The planet.
My guess is that they’ll compost the fetuses. Must have sustainability doncha know.
My exact thoughts. Sick.
They won´t make it to 2014. It´s going to be the end for them.
So, I decide to build an abortion mill, and as long as I go green all else is OK?
Well thank goodness. I certainly hate the thought of innocent babies being murdered in environmentally irresponsible facilities.
It looks just like a crematorium.
Former Director of Planned Parenthood Abby Johnson says, "I know that a lot of [abortion] clinic workers feel trapped in the abortion industry. . . One thing that drives them [the abortion industry] always is profit. . . The bottom line is that they're hurting; their numbers are down. People aren't going to them for family planning services like they used to; they can't fill up their schedules like they used to. . . They [PP] assume that minority women are naive and will listen to anything they say. . . For the entire fiscal year '09 our family planning clincs were in the hole; . . .the only reason Planned Parenthood made any money in fiscal year '09 was because of their abortion services. It's a cash business; they don't file insurance because they want to be sure they get the money up front. . . . they charge anywhere from $500 to $900 for abortions up to 16 weeks . . . that [abortion profit] really is what saves them at the end of the year. . . As many as 8 of 10 women who view ultrasounds and view the heartbeat of their child change their minds about abortion. . . Abortion facilities don't want women to make that maternal connection because then they lose money if the woman chooses life. . . Almost all the women walking in to have an abortion think it's a baby; when they ask you questions, they say, 'What about my baby?' They call it a baby, but the clinic workers are not going to respond in that same kind of language." Interview with Abby Johnson
Don’t you know I refer to Genesis 18:22 . I ask for mercy for your life and mine, how can we escape punishment, we live so close to the unrighteous? Abraham persuaded G_d to spare Sodom if just a few righteous people could be found. Maybe if we plead with G_d he will spare us too?
