|Pro-Life Leaders to Protest Abortion 'Supercenter'
18 January 2010
Several prominent pro-life leaders are rallying in Houston, Texas on Monday to protest what will be the largest abortion clinic in the western hemisphere.
The Call to Conscience, a 4,700 document written by Christian, Catholic and Orthodox leaders, is bringing together African American and Hispanic Christian leaders to march and pray near the site where the 78,000 square-foot Planned Parenthood facility is to be built.
Call to Conscience founder Lou Engle says the clinic is targeting minority communities.
"On Martin Luther King's holiday, we want black Americans and Hispanics to raise their voices and say we're not for this in our neighborhood," Engle said.
"We're meeting with networks of Hispanic pastors who are saying they are not wanting this in their neighborhood. I just spoke with 30 black pastors today who are standing with us on this."
The facility is scheduled to open in April.
