Seventeen months after Planned Parenthood paid $733,151 cash for a 17,050 sq ft unfinished shell in Auburn Hills, Michigan, it stands empty as a neighboring hotel owner continues to battle the abortion giant in court, claiming a deed restriction prevents the structure from being used as an abortion mill.

Four walls and a dirt floor, that’s all it is. Planned Parenthood may have won Round 1 in January but apparently has no confidence it will win Round 2. From the Oakland Press, March 9:

Desiree Cooper, director of Community and Media Relations for Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan… said any planned remodeling or other work on the building is on hold pending the court appeal.

Making matters worse for Planned Parenthood, the State of Michigan cancelled a $200,000 grant when PP didn’t begin interior completion by the end of 2011. This is money PP will likely never see again from the cash-strapped state.

Furthermore, commercial property values in the area have decreased dramatically. A commercial adviser who has performed a physical inspection of the property told Real Estate for Life ‘s Dave Theisen it is now worth probably $150-250k less than it was in November 2010. Plus there are several comparable vacant commercial properties in the area that are finished.

Planned Parenthood thought it had pulled a fast one when its attorney got the Comfort Inn owners next door to agree to the sale without mentioning the A-word or that the purchaser was the PP-word. But it appears to have purchased a money pit.

Meanwhile, PP just opened a storefront clinic in Ferndale, about 30 minutes from Auburn Hills.

Pro-lifers picketed that mill today, which doesn’t commit abortions but does refer for them, which amounts to the same thing: more babies being killed by Planned Parenthood….

God bless ’em, pro-lifers organized a 40 Days for Life campaign in front of PP’s vacant Auburn Hills property, reminding all who drove by that Planned Parenthood is not welcome there.
