Parking: 201 E. Ben White Blvd., Austin
E. Ben White BLVD: Planned Parenthood
This particular Planned Parenthood facility is the abortion center for Austin (there are other Planned Parenthood facilities, but they do not do abortions). It is just east of Congress on Ben White/HW 290. Headed east on the feeder, you will pass a Wendy’s and a Capitol Credit Union. Planned Parenthood is the next building.
Behind the Wendy’s is a wooden fence. Vehicles can park along that back fence without being towed. If there are no available spaces there, the Salvation Army a block south on Congress has a lot to park in. Do NOT park in front of Wendy’s or in front or behind the Capitol Credit Union.
Where to Pray
The public right-of-way includes the grassy area and the sidewalk from the telephone pole to the street. Their property line is marked by the telephone pole on the very right corner of the property. Standing directly next to their stone wall would be crossing onto their property; please do NOT stand directly next to their stone wall. Standing right up next to the driveway is only for trained Sidewalk Counselors to ensure the women to whom they reach out can talk with them and not feel bombarded by multiple people.
