The American Center for Law & Justice represents the Everett, Washington, chapter of The Church at Planned Parenthood. The Church at Planned Parenthood-Everett (“TCAPP”) is an organization that hosts a “gathering of Christians for the worship of God and the corporate prayer for repentance for this nation, repentance for the apathetic church and repentance of our blood guiltiness in this abortion holocaust.”
In April 2019, TCAPP began holding monthly worship services in Everett, near the Planned Parenthood Everett Health Center. In June, TCAPP was approached by City of Everett law enforcement officers who stated that the City of Everett had enacted a new permitting structure that TCAPP may need to complete to continue holding its events.
Then, in August, the Everett City Council passed an ordinance entitled “Interference with a Health Care Facility” so as to enable the City to prosecute offenses such as “making noise that unreasonably disturbs the peace within the facility,” and encompasses any facilities that “provide health care services directly to patients . . . .”
The Everett police have not yet shut down TCAPP’s worship services, but the organization remains concerned that these recent actions by the City of Everett Law Enforcement and Everett City Council may signal that the City intends to interfere with the services soon. The ACLJ sent a letter to the City of Everett on behalf of TCAPP to obtain additional information about this situation and await a response.
We remain determined to protect the rights of TCAPP and others to gather and pray on behalf of the unborn. As this situation unfolds in Washington, our trial against Planned Parenthood in California begins. Keep watch on our website for updates from the trial.
As we take on the abortion industry at the Supreme Court and fight to save babies, we urgently need your support. Donate to defend life.
Planned Parenthood, which deceptively claims that abortions are only an infinitesimal part of its business, just set a record for the most abortions committed in a single year. Planned Parenthood’s 2018-2019 annual report shows that while nationally the abortion rate is at an all-time low , Planned...
A few months ago we told you about our lawsuit on behalf of a pro-life nurse in Indiana who was turned down for a faculty position at Indiana University South Bend (“IUSB”). Our client, Cynthia Isabell, was denied a full-time faculty job at IUSB for which she was eminently well-qualified after...
For years, the abortion industry and its proponents have insisted that abortion is very safe, even safer than childbirth. One problem: this is a myth, a woefully unsupported myth. Contrary to this myth, abortion – the deliberate interruption of the natural, healthy physical process of pregnancy by...
The ACLJ just filed a new FOIA records demand to help expose the abortion lobby’s lie that abortion is safe and should be a constitutionally protected right. The abortion machine is trying to tear up pro-life laws in our country state by state to extend its grip and “ double down ” on abortion.
