Life advocates are appealing a decision by the city of Aurora, Ill., to issue a final certificate of occupancy to a brand-new Planned Parenthood abortion mega-clinic. The certificate grants permanent legal status to the 22,000-square-foot facility.

Lawyers from the Thomas More Society of Chicago say city officials are refusing to apply the correct ordinance to Planned Parenthood. The clinic also has been accused of falsifying permit applications, obtaining an invalid building permit and invalid building inspections, and violating other laws.

"Planned Parenthood has made a mockery of Aurora's development process," said Peter Breen, an attorney with the Thomas More Society. "They have brazenly committed fraud against the city and have strong-armed their illegal non-profit 'business' into the backyards of citizens who were given no voice to oppose the building.

“It is time for the City of Lights to shine a harsh light on Planned Parenthood's dirty tactics."
