Aurora, IL pro-lifers managed to prevent a large Planned Parenthood from opening its doors in their community. Bishop Doran led fellow Christians in prayerful protests outside the planned clinic. Good for the Bishop for encouraging his people to pray! And they succeeded via a lawsuit. Read the complete story here.
A federal judge Thursday turned down Planned Parenthood’s request for an emergency court order that would allow it to open a new health clinic in Aurora that would provide abortions among other health-care services for women.“We don’t know when we will be able to open,” Steve Trombley, president of Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area, said after the hearing before U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle in Chicago.
Abortion opponents battling the clinic celebrated the judge’s decision. Eric Scheidler, spokesman for the Pro-Life Action League, called the judge’s decision “a victory for life and a victory for choice.”
