Abortion is not something that happens in other cities or states. It happens right here in Grand Rapids, many times a day. There are groups out there that lie to young, pregnant women and their boyfriends/spouses. They tell them that abortion won't hurt them, that everything will all go back to normal if they would just go through with the abortion.
The Heritage Clinic, on Ransom Street, is the biggest provider of abortions in the Grand Rapids area. Planned Parenthood (see below) refers pregnant, hopeless-feeling women to this clinic. Heritage Clinic offers discounts to students... how nice of them. This death center is located almost on Grand Rapids Community College's campus; it's on the corner of Ransom and Library. Although Grand Rapids has about 800,000 people, there are about 10 or so people who go down every week to the clinic. This is an outrage! There is activism on Thursdays from 12:00 to 1:00pm.
Another big abortion clinic is called the Women's Medical Center. Located on Alpine Ave NW, they claim to offer "warm, personal & confidential care" as well as "patient discounts". They're sure efficient: not only can the kill your baby for a fee, but they'll be nice about it too!
Planned Parenthood Centers of West Michigan is a woman-,child-, and life-exploiting company. They are an affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. While they use tricky language to disguise the facts, they are a for-profit, government subsidized corporation. They have centers on Cherry Street SE, E Fulton, Byron Center SW, and N Park. If you are pregnant, DO NOT GO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. They will mislead you by telling you false information about your baby and try to sucker you into an abortion. Planned Parenthood also offers abortificients, which are chemical abortion agents. Some of those include the Emergency Contraceptive Pill, the UID, and the birth control pill. If you need pregnancy options, counseling, or help with planning a family, check out one of the places listed on the main page.

The locations of the above locations are here for people to realize where they are relative to the rest of the city. An abortion clinic or Planned Parenthood may be just around the corner from your house. Also, it is always a good idea to organize protests against abortion mills and Planned Parenthood.
