Pro-life this Week: August 26, 2022

Back in June, we told you about a town in upstate New York that successfully barred Planned Parenthood from setting up shop in a local strip mall. Now it seems Planned Parenthood has decided to sue that town. 

After Planned Parenthood was snuffed out of Brighton, NY, by tenacious pro-lifers, the abortion giant then set their sights on the neighboring town of Henrietta, NY. 

Their plans in Henrietta were stopped when the town board denied them a permit in a 3-2 vote in June of this year. Planned Parenthood is now taking revenge by suing the town of Henrietta. 

Fox News reports that Planned Parenthood filed the suit nearly a month later in July and alleges that their permit was in accordance with town zoning and land-use criteria to open in a B1 district and that the town’s decision ultimately “came down to personal opinions and public objections surrounding abortion services.”

The suit is set to come before the New York State Supreme Court at a later date, and according to Fox News, PP will attempt to nullify the town board’s vote, as well as direct it to approve the permit and pay Planned Parenthood’s legal fees.

So, just to reiterate, Planned Parenthood is trying to force their way into the town of Henrietta while asking them to pay for PP’s legal fees. All this after the town already barred them in June. 

The town’s board members who voted against giving Planned Parenthood the permit are standing firm.

Lisa Bolzner, M. Rick Page and Joseph Bellanca voted against the permit, arguing that “a surgical medical facility” is “completely inconsistent” within the strip mall in question and that the retail area does not have adequate space for vehicles or ambulances transporting patients who have undergone medical procedures.

The board members also spoke with the local business owners at the strip mall, who stated that they felt having Planned Parenthood join the mall would negatively affect their own shops, especially considering protests and sidewalk counselors would inevitably come onto the scene, creating controversy around the other shops. 

The local pro-lifers are also standing firm against Planned Parenthood, with Rob Pokalsky telling the Wednesday STOPP Report “Those of us who are pro-life worked hard to stop them the first time they applied, and we’ll keep peacefully fighting to stop them again.”

Hugh Brown was interviewed by Church Militant on the same report. The news outlet covered the dramatic rise in abortion pills, or DIY abortion. 

Celebrate Life editor Susan Ciancio’s weekly op-ed was featured in the National Catholic Register this week. 

Twice a week, Judie’s commentaries are distributed to an expansive media list. The list contains over 100 media outlets, such as Fox News, The Federalist, Breitbart, and The Daily Caller, among others. Judie’s commentaries are each featured on the front page of ALL.org. Each commentary is also featured as a part of Judie’s recurring column on Renew America


Even though Planned Parenthood’s presence across the United States is in decline, its killing business continues to climb. This is because the method of using sharp knives and vacuums to kill is falling out of style. Planned Parenthood prefers to dispense poison pills and leave mothers with the task of cleaning up their dead children.

Church Militant invited ALL’s Hugh Brown to explain Planned Parenthood’s plan to ramp up its pill business despite having fewer buildings year after year.

Vice President Kamala Harris isn’t happy about abortion bans. She describes the latest state measures to protect preborn human life as “extreme.”

Sensible people who want to protect the preborn don’t want mothers and abortionists to decide to tear up the baby’s body.

Kamala broke the newest rule of abortion advocacy . . . abortion isn’t about women anymore.

They can’t even define a “woman.”

How many times in the past two years have we heard that interfering with legislative and judicial processes is a Threat to Democracy™?

Isn’t THAT the truth.
