I had to read the headline of the story twice, and let it sink in.
From LifeSite comes this … what is the word… puzzling? bit of news.
Houston Democrats Throw Christmas Party at Planned Parenthood
by Steven Ertelt | Houston, TX | LifeNews.com
Democrats in Houston have decided on a location for their annual Christmas party and have decided to hold it at a local Houston Planned Parenthood facility.The women’s auxiliary of the Harris County Democratic Party will hold their politically correct-named “Holiday Party” on December 8 at the late-term abortion business Planned Parenthood runs in the southeast party of Houston that has gained national attention and controversy.
The location is no surprise given the close relationship the Democratic Party has with abortion advocates, especially in Houston. Houston Mayor Annise Parker spoke at the opening of the massive new Planned Parenthood abortion business (the location of the party) in June 2010, saying, “It’s not about the building; it’s about people’s lives; it is not about women, it is about families; [That's right!] and it’s not about what we do here today, it’s about our future.”
Parker lives with her life partner Kathy Hubbard, campaign treasurer for Planned Parenthood and Parker’s bid for re-election as Houston Mayor was endorsed by Planned Parenthood.
The gigantic abortion facility planned Parenthood now runs in Houston is a seven story, 78,000 square foot center that will eventually do abortions later in pregnancy.
Jim Sedlak of STOPP International condemned Parker at the time.
“No matter where you live, it would be entirely appropriate to write, phone or email the mayor and ask her just how brutally killing children up to 20 weeks gestation helps the families and the future of Houston.”“And remember, this facility is located in the midst of four huge minority neighborhoods,” he said.
He noted that Parker serves on the board of directors of Girls, Inc., among other community organizations, and it has partnered up with Planned Parenthood in the past.
