Planned Parenthood signA Florida pro-life leader has a message for others who want to stop new abortion facilities from locating in their towns.

Planned Parenthood is closing its abortuary in Stuart, Florida but is proceeding with its plan to open a new facility in nearby Port St. Lucie. Willy Guardiola, who heads Christian on a Mission and Pro-Lifers for Trump, is concerned by the lack of opposition, especially from the five Catholic parishes in the area.

"We have a case in hand right here where if our Catholic churches say, 'No, not here; not in our back yard,' they are not going to open up. That's basically what needs to be done, but nobody is making a big … stink about it," Guardiola laments.

The church has been involved in other areas of the country, but Guardiola thinks the voice should be louder and more prominent so as to get the attention of elected officials.

"On January 22nd, if they're supposed to open up that day, if 10,000 people show up and stop traffic and the whole nine yards, I guarantee they're going to say, 'Hey, guys -- not in Port St. Lucie. Let's go somewhere else.' That's what needs to be done to a drastic point, and that's what has to happen,"Guardiola submits.

He adds that pro-lifers need to be pro-active to stop the clinics before they open rather than reacting after the news becomes public. The pro-life activist also wants Planned Parenthood to understand that if this new clinic does open, then pro-life counselors and prayer warriors will consistently be at the site trying to convince women to give their babies a chance to live.
