The city of Charlotte is known for many things. The Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, one of America’s fastest growing cities, but it’s hard to believe Charlotte would be known as the Abortion Mecca of the Region. Sadly, that’s what we have become and it’s about to get worse. As you probably know there are currently 3 abortion centers in our city with the Latrobe abortion center, A Preferred Women’s Health Center, being quite possibly the most visited abortion center in the entire Southeast.
For the past few months we’ve gotten word that the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, which kills over 300,000 unborn children in our country every year is planning to purchase and occupy one of the largest Planned Parenthood facilities in the region. News outlets and Planned Parenthood itself have recently confirmed the rumors. Planned Parenthood has apparently invested over 10 million dollars into this new state-of-the-art facility. With vast resources at their disposal for marketing and expansion Planned Parenthood will draw abortion patients in from all over the region to this abortion center, making Charlotte the number 1 abortion destination of not only North Carolina but the entire Southeast.
The Truth About Planned Parenthood
Nationally Planned Parenthood kills over 300,000 unborn children every year. Some try to minimize the role PP plays in the abortion holocaust (a scourge on our nation that has destroyed the lives of over 60 million babies since 1973) by saying “Abortion is only 3% of the services Planned Parenthood offers!” Even if that’s true, which is doubtful, a meal made up of 3% poison is still deadly. There’s no doubt that Planned Parenthood has been a force for evil in our nation.
Since it’s founding, Planned Parenthood has targeted those who it’s founder saw as “human weeds“. Margaret Sanger, founder of PP, while pushing her Negro Project, an effort to target African Americans with population control, said “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…” This along with many other statements make it apparent that from the beginning PP has not had the best interest in mind for the people they claim to help. Like in many things as the scripture says “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil!” And this abortion center will generate massive income for the “nonprofit” Planned Parenthood and it’s executives.
So What Can We Do?
It’s our prayer that this new PP facility won’t open. There have been cases from various places in the U.S. that communities have risen up to push back against this abortion giant and stopped PP from opening a facility in their city. God can do anything, so if we seek Him and appeal to Heaven, the Lord is more than able to stop PP from getting a foothold in our city.
However, if this abortion center does open for business in our city, Cities4Life is ready, willing, and able to answer the call and shine the light of the Gospel at that place of darkness. By God’s grace and with the help of wonderful, sacrificial supporters we’ve been a consistent and loving presence at the 3 abortion centers in our city for almost a decade. Over the years we’ve seen almost 5,000 babies and their mothers saved from abortion in our city. Simply put, we know how to reach women and save babies at an abortion center.
Currently we are working on plans to strategically raise up, train, and equip sidewalk counselors to be positioned at this proposed Planned Parenthood abortion center. If their doors open we will have well-trained, Gospel-centered volunteers there to reach abortion-minded women. Of course this will require more sacrifice of time, energy, and resources on our part. Because of that we humbly ask that you stand with us by donating financially to support this life-saving work. Unlike Planned Parenthood we don’t get massive amounts of funding from tax payers. Our work relies on people like you who believe in what we do and want to make sure this ministry can continue to be effective.
We’ve done the math and currently it costs us right at $35 a month to train, equip, and sustain each sidewalk counselor. Remember a sidewalk counselor is oftentimes a last line of defense for precious babies before their lives are taken. Please consider a one-time or monthly gift of $35 or more to help support a Cities4Life sidewalk counselor.
Planned Parenthood may be an abortion giant but if we will stand like David and refuse back down, that Goliath will come down and Jesus will be glorified in it. Stand with us.
