I spent much of last week a few yards from the abandoned abortion center in Des Moines — watching as the long-overdue demolition of the building takes place.

It’s ironic that — a building that likely took much time to build — even longer to occupy — and then stood, mostly abandoned for a decade and a half — can be completely removed in only a few days.

It’s been a sobering experience.

Watching as the heavy machinery tore the building apart, my heart torn apart again, thinking about “the reception area with dated chairs — the “medical services” suite, filled with all the instruments and equipment used in abortions — exam tables where tens of thousands of women lay, lost and alone, some of them now my dearest friends — the jars and trays that held tiny babies, ripped from their mothers — the sink / toilet where babies were swallowed up and sent to the sewer of Des Moines.” (from a piece I wrote earlier this month.)

I’ve thought much of the lives lost there. No doubt tens of thousands of lives, given Planned Parenthood’s decades-long occupancy there. 

It’s where an equal number of women walked into the reception area, paid for their “procedure”, walked into the “medical services” suite, never to be the same again — whether they recognized it or not.

For each one of them, I’ve sat outside that old building this week — continue to — until all that remains there are the haunting memories.

Further, it’s because Planned Parenthood didn’t stop killing babies and harming women when they vacated this building. They simply moved across town to a location that is far more difficult for sidewalk advocates to reach abortion-seeking women. 

Fred Hubbell, Planned Parenthood’s outspoken cheerleader, is running to replace pro-life Governor Kim Reynolds.

He “unabashedly supports Roe v. Wade”, a court decision directly responsible for the deaths of more than 60 million unborn babies and counting. As the former Board Chairman of Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa in the mid-80s, he very likely led those meetings in this very building. 
Governor Kim Reynolds supports seeing abortion end because she knows that women truly deserve better.

The choice is clear.
