NEW ORLEANS - The Planned Parenthood building coming to South Claiborne Avenue doesn't even have walls yet but it certainly has enough controversy surrounding it.
At the groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday, many spoke in support of the new facility, but there were some protesters as well.
Planned Parenthood officials say they’re proud to be opening a new site offering affordable health care. The facility will offer everything from cancer screening to information about birth control methods. On Tuesday, a state house panel gave the OK to legislation urging several state agencies to investigate Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast. They want to make sure the operation is following federal and state laws. Earlier this week, protesters came together to oppose the new clinic. That opposition was addressed at today’s groundbreaking.
