The location of Planned Parenthood’s new mega-abortion clinic in San Antonio, Texas, was kept a closely guarded secret until October 11, when Planned Parenthood of South Texas CEO Jeffrey Hons gave a reporter from San Antonio Express-News a tour of the facility, now in the latter stages of construction.

The existing 22,000 sq ft building, located at 2140 Babcock Road, is being renovated at a projected cost of $6.5 million, up from $5 million just 7 months ago. Love those overruns.

Yesterday, pro-life activists from Created Equal and Love of Truth Ministries were able to enter the two-story building, around which there were no “No Trespassing” signs or fence, to conduct†their own inspection, with video camera in hand. Here’s what they saw…

Blame Planned Parenthood for dearth of Texas abortion clinics today

Abortion Texas cut by 2/3 with Planned Parenthood abortion clinic monopoly

Yesterday there were 21 abortion clinics in Texas, today there are†eight.

Thanks†to a federal Fifth Circuit Court ruling that allows the state to immediately begin enforcing part of a pro-life law that had been†enjoined by a judge in April, the unshackled statute†forces abortion clinics to meet†the same physical requirements as other ambulatory surgical treatment centers. It also requires that abortionists have admitting privileges within 30 miles of a†clinic.

No surprise, when the decision came down late yesterday afternoon the abortion lobby proclaimed an†apocalypse. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards tweeted:

Abortion’s new underground railroad

According to the Guttmacher Institute, in 2009 the median cost of a first-trimester abortion was just under $500. Add the bus travel or gas and up to three nights in a hotel, and the cost can jump by several hundred dollars. Thatís the impetus behind Clinic Action Support Network, which was founded last summer in […]

Peek into meeting of Texas abortion activists shows pathetic disarray

9140788925_5898d68d86As the one-year anniversary approached of the passage in Texas of House Bill 2, a wide-ranging piece of pro-life legislation,†I wrote a post, “Texas abortion allies try to ‘recapture the energy’ they said they’d never lose.”

When July 12 came and went without much†more than Twitter angst, it became clear to those on the outside the 2013 spark had died.

But does the view from the inside match?

Notes from the July 2 meeting of Dallas for Reproductive Justice, attended by six people, give a glimpse of a statewide†movement that is a dying ember†of its momentarily fired up former self. And if the pro-abortion furor we saw inspired by Wendy Davis in Texas last year can’t be sustained, where can it be?

Pro-life news brief 7-19-13

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • Itís funny how Reuters decided to investigate the absurd claim which was repeated non-stop that only 5 clinics in Texas would stay open after pro-life legislation passed. Why they didn’t investigate these claims while the legislation was being debated and making national news is anyone’s guess:

    Twenty-six states have laws that require abortion clinics to meet varying levels of hospital standards, according to the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights. Pennsylvania, Virginia and Missouri passed strict health and safety rules similar to Texas, it said.In those three states, however, most clinics were able to stay open after the laws passed, some by reallocating dollars to comply with building upgrades, according to abortion providers and state health department officials interviewed by Reuters….

    Elizabeth Nash, state issues manager for the Guttmacher Institute, which favors abortion rights but does research cited by both sides, said the new law will have an impact in Texas but maybe less than the worst fears.

    “Clinics will close,” she said. “But I can’t say we are going to go down to six.”

    Only one clinic has closed in Virginia since a new law was implemented there earlier this year, the state health department said. No clinics have closed in Missouri because of a tough law passed there in 2007, abortion provider Planned Parenthood of Kansas and mid-Missouri said.

“Bro-choicers” boohoo: Texas abortion bill could curb our casual sex

For those of us guys who like girls – you know, like them like them – and want to have relationships with them that may last anywhere from a few minutes to many years, we need to think about how this bill, by curtailing the bodily autonomy and sexual freedom of women, hurts us, too. […]
