Planned Parenthood (PP) opened a large abortion referral/birth control center on Rice St. just north of Highway 36 in Little Canada in late summer. (This satellite facility was previously housed in a strip mall near the intersection of Rice and Larpenteur in Maplewood, about a mile south of the new location.) This was city-owned land and the developer, Mark Davis of The Davis Group, sneaked the plan past the Little Canada Planning Commission and the City Council by stating that he wanted to purchase the property to build a medical center and that he didn’t have a definite lessee lined up yet. The fact that PP was moving in became public as the building was being constructed and shortly after it was finished, PP become the owner.
To inform the residents of Little Canada and the surrounding area of just what their new neighbor is, Pro-Life Action Ministries has distributed “See for Yourself” doorhangers which urge people to view The Center for Medical Progress undercover videos. Also, the Culture of Life Committee at St. John’s Church in Little Canada has begun witnessing and praying at this high-visibility location on the second Wednesday of the month from 11 a.m. to noon. You are welcome to join them! For more information, contact Eric Cooley, Pastoral Minister, (651) 288-3268.
