American Family Association condemns abortion super center

Planned Parenthood intends to open a six-story, 78,000 square-foot abortion facility in Houston, Texas. Numerous pro-life leaders from all across the United States will attend a prayer vigil on Sunday evening, January 17, and a silent march followed by a national press conference on Monday, January 18, Martin Luther King, Jr. day, to protest the opening of this massive abortuary.

Said Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association (AFA), "This center is smack dab in the middle of four minority neighborhoods, three of them 85% Hispanic and one 80% African-American. This is just a continuation of the genocidal agenda of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, an agenda picked up by Adolph Hitler.

“Planned Parenthood will try to say they are simply trying to serve minority communities, but you don't serve them by killing their babies before they have the chance to be born, Wildmon said. Killing utterly defenseless babies in the womb is hardly noble. It's reprehensible, and we stand with pro-life Hispanics and African-Americans to condemn this temple to the god of death.”

Added Buddy Smith, the executive assistant to the president of AFA, “It's fitting that this march will take place on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, the day we've chosen to honor the pioneer of civil rights. We believe every African-American baby in the womb deserves to be a part of Rev. King's dream, and to have the chance at life that our Founders knew is a God-given right.

“You can't honor Rev. King's memory and legacy by killing the very people he gave his life for.”

Mr. Smith will attend the prayer vigil on Sunday evening and the march and press conference on Monday.
