Must-see photos of Washington’s Planned Parenthood building demolished
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – For decades, it stood as a reminder of Planned Parenthood's domination of economically disadvantaged areas – and politically powerful ones. Today, it lies in ruin.
Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., demolished its abortion facility in the heart of the city, which closed last year, and a longtime protester is proudly memorializing the destruction.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition said, “I prayed and demonstrated” outside that abortion facility “for 28 years” before it was scheduled to be torn down.
As he viewed the old faḉade finally dismantled into a heap, he considered the sight a long-awaited answer to his prayers.
Yesterday, Rev. Mahoney posted a picture of the building after its demolition.
"Here is the old Planned Parenthood today in Washington, D.C., completely in rubble,” Rev. Mahoney wrote. “My prayer is that every Planned Parenthood will end up on the scrapheap of history like this!”
The facility announced it would close its doors last January, with Planned Parenthood saying it had “outgrown” its office space.
But while the old office has been reduced to a million pieces, the new abortion facility has yet to open its doors.
In the meantime, Planned Parenthood's website directs its customers to its locations in Silver Spring and Gaithersburg, Maryland.
Planned Parenthood plans to erect a massive abortion facility at 1225 Fourth St. NE in the nation's capital. That location rests between an elementary school and a middle school. One of them, Two Rivers Public Charter School, has already sued pro-life advocates for protesting the location.
Pizzano Contractors, a Catholic-owned business, is reportedly contracted to build the abortion office.
Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life has said the District of Columbia should be ground zero in the fight against abortion expansion.
But for the moment, Rev. Mahoney is rejoicing amid the wreckage.
“On with the revolution!" he wrote.
