Planned Parenthood is moving into a new, centralized site in the Midway area of Saint Paul. They will be performing abortions at this site.
This is from their blog announcement:
With 46,000 square feet, the new building will bring our community education programs, administrative offices, and a full-service reproductive health care clinic all under one roof, allowing us to stream line our operations and continue providing our patients comfortable, secure care. The new building will be in a more accessible location and will help bring increased activity and vitality to the Central Corridor.
“Accessible” is a word we use frequently when talking about disability. We appreciate accessible buildings, programs, and communities. Seeing it here, though . . .
I’ve already pointed out the connection between abortion and disability. I won’t belabor that point here.
And as soon as I heard the address, my heart sank even more. They are locating this clinic, where I know babies with disabilities will be killed, about a block from the Minnesota State Services for the Blind.
The State Services for the Blind is obviously not a Christian organization. But I am going to start praying that the massive evidence of the inherent, God-granted dignity and value of people living with blindness will ruin this new abortion clinic in that neighborhood. Mothers being tempted to abort will be riding on the same light rail and the same buses as people with disabilities; in fact, getting off at the same locations.
God can work a miracle in those moments. And then that clinic can just go away through lack of customers.
Or, better yet, because Jesus has returned!
