The second largest abortion facility in the world, next to China, is being built at this present moment in Houston, Texas. On January 18 there is to be a mass mobilization of pro-life forces to march and pray outside the abortion facility.
This six-story, 78,000 square foot Planned Parenthood abortion "Super Center" is right in the middle of four minority neighborhoods.
Three of these neighborhoods have an average 85% Hispanic population and the fourth is 80% Black American. The third floor is being specially built as an ambulatory surgical center for the purpose of performing late-term abortions. Obviously, Planned Parenthood is targeting these minority communities and families to fuel their abortion industry like never before. The opening of this facility MUST NOT go unchallenged.
It’s time for all of us to take our stand with the families of these minority communities. It’s time for the abortion issue to become a justice issue. Well known author and pastor, John Piper, recently wrote on his Twitter acccount a statement that is both profound and prophetic in its clarity concerning the ending of abortion:
"Wave 1: Catholics say NO to abortion. Wave 2: Evangelicals flood the land with CPC’s. Wave 3: Blacks & Latinos bring it down."
It is time for our America’s minority peoples to lead this nation with the voice of justice and family values. Let those who have been targeted for death become the prophets for LIFE.
Who knows? Houston could become the Birmingham of our day to let the unborn go free and spare the pregnant mother the agony of post-abortion physical and spiritual trauma. Out of Houston a great demonstration of compassion could be launched through pregnant mother care with a mass movement of adoption. Out of Houston the voice of our minority peoples could begin to proclaim to the nation their stand for life.
Jeremiah 1:5 says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you." Clearly, for every child God has a dream. Martin Luther King, Jr. cried, "I have a dream!" His niece Alveda King has prophetically stated, "How can the dream live as long as we kill our children?" God also has a dream for America, and a massive six-story abortion facility has never been a part of that dream. Let the nightmare end, and let the dream live.
On January 18 from 11am – 2pm
