'Miracle' Development Gives Washington Pro-Life Group Ammunition to Fight Planned Parenthood

Read Time: 1 Minute 16 Seconds

A Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington state was in for a major surprise when pro-lifers rallied the community to raise enough money to purchase a home across the street.

The Planned Parenthood in Bremerton, Washington, had long drawn the ire of pro-life activists, with people on both sides of the divide gathering to rally and protest, according to the Kitsap Daily News.

But now the Western Washington Coalition for Life, a group that opposes abortion, has a permanent location right across the street from the clinic.

It's a development its leaders are calling "a miracle."

For a long time, pro-life members of the group wanted to have a more permanent presence—a location where women could receive information about abortion alternatives.

"We had looked at this house across from Planned Parenthood for years and thought that, 'Really, wouldn't it be nice if we could ever get that house,'" Laurie Coykendall, the group's executive director, told Kitsap Daily News.

Then, something surprising happened. She and others found out on Feb. 26, 2020, the home was up for sale, and they had to act fast.

"Excited, Laurie and [fellow prayer warrior] Kerry sensed that God had finally revealed His purpose. Quickly the pair reached out to supporters," the Western Washington Coalition for Life website reads. "The house was available, with another offer already on the table! They would need to raise the money fast before their chance was lost."
