Victory Celebration Scheduled for Tonight at 6 pm
Federal Judge Says that Planned Parenthood Emergency Injunction to Evade Building Permit Investigation is Without Merit
When: Monday, September 17, 2007, Celebration Begins at 6:00 pm (CST)
What: Today a federal judge stopped the nation’s largest abortion facility, Planned Parenthood of Aurora, from opening as scheduled tomorrow.
“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, 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.
Where: Planned Parenthood facility located at 3051 E. New York St. in Aurora, Illinois.
