Dallas pastor’s Planned Parenthood protests had this surprising result

In 2014, Planned Parenthood opened a major abortion clinic in south Dallas, in the heart of the city’s black community. Pro-life activists and pastors were outraged, none more so than Stephen Broden, pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship. Soon after it opened, Broden began organizing protests outside the abortion facility.

Every Saturday (the only day Planned Parenthood would perform abortions at the facility), Broden and his supporters would stand outside the clinic, praying and asking women walking into the facility to reconsider their decision. Some Saturdays, Broden had a large crowd with him; other times, it was only a small group. No matter what, however, they were always there, and managed to save a number of babies.

After a year of protests, Broden has finally gotten the better of the Planned Parenthood.

In a post on his Facebook page on Saturday, August 15, Broden reported that the Dallas clinic had changed their abortion practices to answer a decline in demand:

Planned Parenthood is no longer doing abortions on Saturday. Our protests have reduced their clientele participation such that they are no longer doing abortions on Saturday. They moved their killing day to Tuesday. I will be at 7989 West Virgina Dr Tuesday at 10 a.m. with my bullhorn. Join me and let’s drive them out of the community.

With the new focus on Planned Parenthood’s practices, thanks to a number of shocking undercover videos, it seems Broden and his supporters now have a reason to believe that the tide may have turned in their favor.
