  • Senate Democrats are still opposing human trafficking legislation unless it includes abortion funding.
  • Here’s some dreadful advice from Dear Abby to a teen girl worried her father will forced her into an abortion – Go to Planned Parenthood:

    You must also be sure to have the best prenatal care possible, so your child will be born healthy. Planned Parenthood has clinics where this care is offered, and you should contact it as soon as possible. If you check its website,, you also will find information about adoption.

  • The opening of a Planned Parenthood in El Centro, California, has been delayed because they didn’t pass the fire inspection:

    At the clinic’s final inspection, the city’s fire chief said the building had been incorrectly classified. The new classification requires the clinic to add a fire-suppression system and other expensive improvements.

    Planned Parenthood officials said the city is responding to pressure from people who don’t want the clinic to open.

    El Centro Fire Chief Kenneth Herbert said that had nothing to do with his decision. “I’ve got a job to do and it’s about protecting life, enforcing life safety code and such, and I’ve never been one to bow to pressure,” Herbert said.

  • The editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle is upset pro-lifers have used environmental law to prevent Planned Parenthood from converting a building into an abortion clinic:

    In the lawsuit, Respect Life South San Francisco alleged that the city should have conducted an environmental review before approving the renewal of a vacant downtown building into a health clinic. The lawsuit has held up the conversion for 18 months and counting….

    We can now add women’s health services to the toll of public goods that have been stymied by the California Legislature’s refusal to stand up to the interest groups who seem to think CEQA should remain carved in stone. It needs reform so that it no longer provides a free pass into court for people whose real agendas have nothing to do with the environment.
