Pro-life groups are protesting the new Planned Parenthood clinic that tried to disguise itself by getting building permits in the name of the Gemini Health Center. Though deception is just part of the territory when it comes to Planned Parenthood in the first place.
"The anti-choice extremists have started already with a fairly consistent presence [at the Aurora site] — not a big presence, but they started their 40-day vigil," she said by phone. "We’ve started getting phone calls from people asking, ‘Are you going to do something?’ The pro-choice side needs to be visible."
Planned Parenthood said in a statement that it offers a bulwark against sexually transmitted diseases and other health problems that are growing in DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will Counties. Steve Trombley, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area, said that more than 90 percent of its services have to do with reproductive health care, not abortion, and that the clinic is opening because of local demand.
So people praying for 40 days in front of an abortion clinic is the new extremism. Yes a 40 day vigil must be countered – maybe they will start an anti-vigil to Moloch.
Their second argument is even stranger. "Only ten percent of the food I serve contains cyanide" would not be an effective argument for a restaurant.
While people can differ on abortion, the place to debate is not in front of clinics, Trombley said.
"The place to have that argument is in the legislature and in the courts," he said. "And we think that holds true for both sides of that debate."
In that case how dare he debate in a newspaper article instead of the legislature and the courts. I wonder if he would have told Rosa Parks to take her case to the legislature instead?
