AURORA, May 11—“It was a great day in Aurora when the abortion clinic at Galena Boulevard and May Street shut down,” said Eric Scheidler, the Communications Director of the Pro-Life Action League and spokesman for the ad hoc group, Aurora Citizens for Life. “We don’t want an abortionist operating in our neighborhood.”
On Saturday, May 12, 2007, from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m., Scheidler will lead a demonstration at the site of the closed abortion clinic as a warning to the building owner, retired abortionist Aleksander Jakubowski, and any abortionist considering leasing or purchasing it that area residents will resist any move to bring abortion back to Aurora.
A community meeting was held April 12 at the Prisco Community Center to discuss concerns that the building, which is for sale, might be sold or leased to another abortionist. Over seventy concerned citizens attended the meeting. A large group of pro-life protestors is expected at the May 12 demonstration.
The building at 523 W. Galena Blvd. has been closed since October 2006, when abortionist Louis S. Meyers was evicted from the building by Jakubowski. Since then it has been for sale.
“We’re sending a clear signal to the abortionists that we don’t want them here in Aurora,” said Scheidler, who lives on the 800 block of Garfield Avenue, just blocks away from closed abortion clinic. “Any abortionist considering setting up shop in Aurora should think again. We will exercise our protest rights to the utmost to prevent unborn babies from being killed in our town.”
