Aurora Planned Parenthood Clinic is Open!!!
Good News from Planned Parenthood:
Yesterday, local officials confirmed that Planned Parenthood followed all proper procedures while developing our health center in Aurora, and found no grounds to deny us our permit.
As we write this, the doors of Planned Parenthood's newest health center are open, and the women of Aurora are coming through them. And the best part is, they'll be greeted by your ribbons, representing the warmth and welcome of thousands of people like you.
Your support, in person and in spirit, has been a heartwarming experience for those of us at Planned Parenthood. This is what it means to be part of this community. Just as the women of Aurora are Planned Parenthood, and the Aurora clinic is Planned Parenthood, so, too, are you Planned Parenthood.
We are Planned Parenthood. Standing together, we sent a message that we will fight for access to reproductive health care for women in Aurora and for women everywhere.
We've said this throughout these challenging weeks: "What happens in Aurora, happens in America." We expect fights like this for other health centers around the country in the months ahead. It won't be easy. But today, we're reminded that when you combine 90 years of history and courage with tens of thousands of people like you, we can win.
