Lack of Parking Kills California Planned Parenthood Plans


Planned Parenthood announced that it was canceling plans to open a new clinic in Redwood City, saying the opening wasn’t moving fast enough.

Although the group originally had a deal with a nearby rent-a-car service to provide the nine additional parking spaces the clinic required, anti-choice protesters put endless pressure on Enterprise not to go through with its agreement. 

Instead, the California Planned Parenthood decided to open a clinic in San Mateo, where there were less adjustments to the property needed, since it was already a health clinic.  Protesters of the Redwood City site said they will now move to San Mateo to protest, despite the fact that the facility will not even be providing abortions.

    It’s about the warm, cozy feeling of being part of a large cohesive group, affirming their solidarity and identity by hating ‘bad women’.   The way the KKK worked.  Or lynch mobs.
