    Do you have some knowledge we don't have, like it's a daycare center or something?

    I'm going to guess that it will, like other Planned Parenthood clinics, be a women's health facility that, as part of its many services, provides abortions.

    But, you don't have to take my word for it. I have an email in to Planned Parenthood asking what they project the usages of the facility will be. If I don't hear back by Tuesday, I'll get their press office on the phone.

    I also call shenanigans on the article in the OP saying that PP did not respond. During a (brief) stint as a journalist, I contacted Planned Parenthood many times, and never had to wait more than 24 hours for a call back with the information I requested. Ditto NARAL, who CNS could also have called. The "could not be reached for comment" crap is designed to be hostile. The way I was taught, if you can't reach a source, you just leave that out.

    As is mentioned earlier in the thread, the building is not going to be used for just abortions, and this was admitted by a protester at the protest a year ago in an article I found.

    No. That's the point. We don't know enough because we only get one side of the story.

    Ten bucks says you've whined "liberal biased media" at least once in your life. You should understand this.

    Oh, I'm sure of that. I contacted PP to get their projections of usage, by percentage, so I can bring some hard facts.

    It bothers me to see Planned Parenthood characterized as an abortion group. Since their inception, their cause has been access to contraception and improved women's health.

But the minute they start doing damage or harassing those who go there, they should go to jail. And if they shoot a doctor, nurse, or patient, or bomb the clinic, then they should be put on trial as terrorists, and the trial should be nationally televised, so that Americans can see what they really are.

    Why doesn't the pro-life crowd denounce this form of terrorism? Is it that they don't value the lives of the doctors, nurses or patients who are the victims of this violence?

    Are fetuses their selective concern over adult human beings?

    Agreed, I think though the doctors that perform elective 3rd erm abortions should be held to the same standard.
