Anti-Abortion Forces Target Houston Builder

A Houston Planned Parenthood is being targeted by anti-abortion protesters. According to the Houston Chronicle the protestors have picketed the clinic’s current site and plan to target the construction company that will renovate a six-story building for the Houston Planned Parenthood.

The Houston Chronicle reports that protesters are erroneously calling the clinic’s new location “the largest center of late-term abortions in the Western Hemisphere.” Abortion opponents are also publicizing the contact information of the contractor working with Planned Parenthood on this project.

Similar tactics were recently used to pressure a builder in Portland, Oregon to withdraw from another Planned Parenthood contract.
