AURORA, September 17, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A victory celebration
will be underway tonight as citizens in Aurora celebrate the fact that
they have at least delayed the opening of the largest abortion center
in the United States. Today a federal judge stopped Planned
Parenthood of Aurora from opening as scheduled tomorrow.
The massive Planned Parenthood facility applied for a building permit
under false pretences and outraged the community. Led by the
Pro-Life Action League, thousands have protested outside the yet-to-be
opened facility for the last month attracting the attention of the
“Today’s court action demonstrates that truth still matters in America.
This is exactly what we’ve been praying for these past 40 days, that
Planned Parenthood would not open on September 18,” said Eric Scheidler
of the Pro-Life Action League, “We trust that the judge will allow
Aurora to fully investigate how Planned Parenthood tried to come into
town without disclosing who they were and their plans to perform
abortions. Planned Parenthood had 13 appointments scheduled for
Tuesday’s opening. If God’s answer spared 13 innocent lives, then we
give the Lord the praise for the delay and the ultimate permanent
closing of this abortion mill.”
Planned Parenthood officials asked U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle
to issue a court order allowing the clinic to open Tuesday as
scheduled. But Aurora officials opposed that effort because of an
ongoing investigation to determine whether the project’s developer,
Gemini Office Development LLC, lied on behalf of Planned Parenthood and
deceived government officials by not disclosing the purpose of the
clinic during the permitting process that it would be a Planned
Parenthood facility that would offer abortions.
