Pastor: Alabamans choose life over Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood buildingA pastor insists the majority of his state's population is against Planned Parenthood's latest plans.

Although it is no longer operating as an abortion clinic, the current Planned Parenthood clinic in Birmingham has a checkered past: it was shut down for a time for health and safety violations, and staff members were selling drugs.

The latest plan is a new 10,000-square-foot clinic that a Planned Parenthood spokesperson described as a "new, beautiful building" in the downtown area. Pro-life activists are expecting the new facility to offer abortions. 

Harry Reeder, pastor of Briarwood Presbyterian Church, also located in Birmingham, tells OneNewsNow there are “multiple reasons” to oppose Planned Parenthood.

“And one of the clearest,” he says, “is because of its commitment to promote and to perpetuate and even to celebrate --- as we have seen in recent years --- the taking of the life of the unborn in the womb.”

After recent pro-life laws publicized Alabama’s stance, angering abortion supporters, Planned Parenthood is using the state's actions as a marketing ploy to publicize its clinic construction.

“Planned Parenthood is now seeing the opportunity as a fundraiser nationally to say that they are taking on the commitment to the sanctity of life in the state of Alabama,” Reeder advises, “by building a clinic within the major population center of Alabama.”

The pastor predicts, however, that most Alabamans will not accept an industry devoted to killing innocent human beings.
