The opening of the Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic raised many concerns and protests.
After closing a smaller clinic in D.C, Planned Parenthood has a new place of work that is opening this week. This comes as a surprise since it is located near a school. The fact that the clinic is located in the same neighborhood as a school outrages parent and pro-lifers. They think that is should be stopped and the clinic should be closed.
To show their outrage many people protested and even wrote messages on the sidewalk in front of the abortion clinic. One of the massages says “ Welcome, we kill babies”. Other held different signs that had messages against the clinic and pro-life. This weekend, before the opening, lots of people gathered in front of the clinic to pray for the babies, the moms, and even for the people that work at the clinic.
People reported that they saw the first patients walking into the clinic this Monday, despite the fact that the Planned Parenthood clinic should have been open since May. The grand opening was delayed by the protesters. Parents and pro-lifers held protests for several months but their efforts were in vain since the clinic opened.
The protests started in December, when the clinic was an undergoing construction. This made the neighbors sue the protesters because they disturbed the students from the nearby school.
“Planned Parenthood is brass to construct a death camp beside an elementary and middle school. Parents should be forewarned of the dangers which lurk behind the four walls,” said the representative of the pro-lifers.
The abortion clinic has not many supporters; even some of the constructors left the site once they learned that it is going to become a Planned Parenthood clinic. Other people that were concerned were the parents of the students that were attending school next door.
The president and chief executive of the Planned Parenthood institution said that it will be no problem for the clinic or the school because they have other clinics near schools and some of the workers even come and talk to children about health.
Do you think that parents will agree with the Planned Parenthood clinic?
