Contractor Leaves Job After Discovering it was Planned Parenthood Clinic
KHOU Houston ^ | 3/30/12 | Jim Douglas

Posted on 03/31/2012 4:08:27 PM PDT by marshmallow

FORT WORTH, Texas - Construction equipment churns away behind a chain link fence, but there's no sign to show what's being built on John Ryan Road in Southwest Fort Worth.

The Gladney Adoption Center right next door, which sold the land to a third party, didn't learn who bought it until Thursday.

One subcontractor didn't find out until just a few hours before he was to pour concrete footings this week.

When he discovered it was a new Planned Parenthood health center where abortions will be performed, he told the general contractor his religious convictions wouldn't allow it.

He walked off the job. He told News 8 other construction workers are also raising religious objections.

The president of Planned Parenthood of North Texas said there's a reason the organization's name is not on the project.

"From the beginning, we intended to be public with this project," Ken Lambrecht said. "We wanted to choose the right time, so that our contractors wouldn't have to endure the harassment and intimidation that Planned Parenthood staffers and patients must endure on a day-to-day basis."

Abortion is America’s holocaust. 6 million Jews murdered by Nazis....60 million Americans murdered by “doctors.” Someone is going to pay dearly at the judgement throne of the Almighty.

When I look at something like this...

I think, "some architect sat down and designed that facility. Some engineer figured out how many ovens would be needed to cremate the number of bodies that were to be transported in."

Planned Parenthood facilities are little McDeath Camps, American-capitalist style.

Good one them. Let the market decide. I’m sure the can find people to work on it who don’t care one way or the other.

Oh, and I’m really tired of the BS story line about how women “rely on us every year for basic health care, pap smears, birth control, breast and cervical cancer screenings.” Really? I bet there are lots of places within 20 miles where a woman can get all of these and it won’t cost any more than it does at Planned Parenthood. Cut the crap. There’s only one reason women choose to go to PP instead of another clinic. It’s their number one seller. And it starts with the letter “A”.

“Treat each other with respect on both sides of this issue, because no matter where we stand, we are neighbors,” Meredith said.

Sorry Rev. Meredith, I cannot respect baby killers or the people who go along with this atrocity. Would you respect a neighbor who committed murder on a daily basis? You, Reverend Meridith are a perfect example of the “go along, get along” , leading his congregation straight to hell, preachers that fill the pulpits of so many of our churches today.

“He said it's important for both sides not to demonize each other to make their points.

“Treat each other with respect on both sides of this issue, because no matter where we stand, we are neighbors,” Meredith said.”

Sure. Even workers at Dachau went home at night after “work”. Maybe even sent their kids off to school in the morning.
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Can't we all just get along?

Abortion: the number ONE cause of death in the United States! About 1.4 million, and that is just the surgical ones. It beats heart disease by a long shot.

Abortion industry is BIG business. And then sell the body parts. Grusome. Hurts women. Tax dollars contribut.

The Edna Gladney Home (for unwed mothers) has been a landmark institution in North Central Texas caring for tens of thousands of young unwed mother over the decades. I'm sure that the land would have never been sold to PP had they known who the buyer (talk about deception.

Here's a little information about Edna Gladney as posted on Wikipedia:

Edna Gladney placed over 10,000 babies with adoptive parents during her career and totally revitalized adoption practices. She helped to grant adoptive children the same rights as “natural” children and gave orphaned children and many birth mothers a place to stay and a hospital where they could receive treatment. She helped develop modern day adoption practices and removed the stigma of “illegitimacy” from birth records and from society. Edna treated all of “her” children as if they were her own and continued correspondence with adopted children long after they had left her care. She became a mother to so many people, and her legacy can continue with the Edna Gladney Center for Adoption and things like “Where is Edna Going?”; a Facebook page that adopted children and adopting families can use to connect with other adoptees and adopters by taking pictures with a cutout of Edna with their new families

We would certainly help but I do believe this gentleman is from Fort Worth. Part of that area up there is very conservative so hope this article gets some legs so he can reap some earthly rewards.

“harassment and intimidation that Planned Parenthood staffers and patients must endure on a day-to-day basis.”

AND the TORTURE and MURDER that their patients endure on a day-to-day basis.

I always ask... What kind of person can tear apart a little baby, sell it's parts, then put what is left over in the garbage disposer, and throw the switch?

Oh, they can't sell parts, it's illegal. Baby parts FREE, shipping and handling, $10,000, all very legal.

Oh, they don't really put dead baby parts down the disposer!
Oh, yes they do. Sometimes they just throw them up on the roof. (documented).

A verse from Keith Green's song, “A Billion Starving People”

“I find it hard to just ignore, the murdered unborn children,

Yes times have changed, but still God warns, you shall not take a life.

I want to save a life today, I want to keep one alive for my Father,

Who will avenge the blood!

Of weak and helpless ones someday - whose lives are spilled out like water,

Lambs in the slaughter, and each one is handmade by Jesus.”

You bet-cha. The Great White Throne of Judgment will be on fire because of the murder of His little unborn children. Children are special to Him. These with blood on their hands for stinking money are no better than Mafia murderers for hire.

Having lived in “Cowtown”commonly known as Ft Worth... Finding out an abortion mill being built from land bought from the Gadney foundation is horrifing to pro life people...

I can see satan hand all over this....

But the good if any thing about this is the girls and workers who go to the planned murder facility see the adoption center right next door and will be a constant remember to them

"...harassment and intimidation that Planned Parenthood staffers and patients must endure on a day-to-day basis..."

You genocidal maniacs should endure more than harassment and intimidation. You should endure the suffering of your victims, both the ones you murder in cold blood, and the pain of the mothers and fathers who kill their own flesh and blood, sometimes because you coerced them into it.

Pardon my being crude, but ESAD, you hateful monsters and purveyors of legalized murder. May you all rot in Hell.
