New Abortion Center in Houston

As I briefly mentioned earlier this week, Planned Parenthood is planning on opening their new "supercenter" soon.  It will be the largest abortion clinic in the nation, when open.

Pro-life leaders in the Houston area have called on national pro-life leaders to help them fight this building.  Thus, the Houston Coalition for Life (based on the model started here in Bryan / College Station) has started to protest the building along with many other groups. A website has been set up to be the center of all of the groups coming together to fight the building.

The local Houston news has caught wind of the issue as well.

Please pray for Houston and an end to abortion.

From an email from the local Coalition for Life:
NEW PLANNED PARENTHOOD WILL BE LARGEST ABORTION FACILITY IN WORLD

At this moment, the largest abortion clinic in the world is being built in the Lone Star State -- right in the middle of Houston.

This facility will be equipped to do abortions at 24 weeks!

Join us and thousands from across Texas for a huge prayer rally and march on January 17th & 18th to oppose the opening of this facility later this spring.

The Call in Crisis Event starts at 6 PM on January 17 with four hours of fasting and prayer at Grace Community Church in Houston.

On the morning of January 18, a silent march will begin at the Catholic Charismatic Center and end at the building site of the new Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

The press conference and prayer rally that will include:

* TONY PERKINS, president of the Family Research
Council

* SAMUEL RODRIGUEZ, president of the National Hispanic
Christian Leadership Conference

* BISHOP HARRY JACKSON, senior pastor of Hope
Christian Church

* RICHARD LAND, president of the Ethics and Religious
Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist
Convention

* STAR PARKER, president of the Coalition for Urban
Renewal and Education

* ABBY JOHNSON, the former director of our Planned
Parenthood in Bryan, TX

* And one BIG surprise!
