It looks like -- for now, at least -- that Planned Parenthood's bait-and-switch tactic of building a new Aurora, Illinois clinic under a false name has backfired:
CHICAGO (AP) A suburban Planned Parenthood clinic prohibited from opening after anti-abortion activists raised questions about how it received its building permits will stay closed for the near future.
U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle on Thursday rejected a motion that could have allowed the clinic in Aurora to open as soon as Friday and predicted a long legal fight for Planned Parenthood.
While the case is far from over, it's good to see Planned Parenthood's duplicitous practices acknowledged and left unrewarded. The fact that the nation's largest abortion provider applied for its building permits under the name of "Gemini Office Development" is very telling.
