It was five years ago (August 25, 2007) that the first protest was held at the site of Planned Parenthood’s massive abortion clinic in Aurora, Illinois. Pro-lifers had already been praying at the site for weeks, beginning shortly after it was learned the building — represented to city officials as a multi-use medical office — would house one of the largest abortion clinics in the country.
Protests have been held every third Saturday since the facility’s opening, and according to PLAL, the anniversary protest this year had a great turnout:
These protests will continue until Planned Parenthood shuts its doors in Aurora for good. Joining us this month was Lynda Weis, an Aurora resident and amateur photographer, who took some great shots of the protest.
And here’s video of the very first protest from five years ago. (See Jill posing with another pro-life friend at the 6:00 mark.) I was also there several times in 2007, praying that the abortuary would never open up due to its deception in gaining entry into Aurora.
