Planned Parenthood Sioux Falls was closed this morning?! Hmm.
It was anything but a typical Monday morning at South Dakota's only abortuary. (Today was compliance day.) Five women arrived for appointments and found the doors were closed and locked. Hmm. All eventually left, one came back, left again. One went to the Alpha Center and got the straight scoop on other options besides killing her baby. Now she'll be able to make a better choice. Another talked to one of the Bound4Life (South Dakota chapter) prayer team members praying at the clinic at 8:15 this morning and she was weeping. She said she had an appointment for an abortion at 8:30 AM. Mondays are typically busy days there - full parking lot. Today, it was very quiet. Two staff cars were in the lot but no one came to the door. The women who walked up to the locked doors seemed confused.
Aren't we being told Planned Parenthood cares about women? Nonsense. I'm telling you the respectability facade over this organization is lifting. These women weren't even notified the clinic would not be able to "serve" them today. Planned Parenthood is in CYA mode - they don't care about women - this is big business. It's not medicine - it's not health care - this is a cartel that kills and covers their trail.
You'll recall that today Planned Parenthood in South Dakota had to start complying with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals Informed Consent ruling by telling women seeking abortion that they were terminating the life of a unique separate living human being. It's fully speculation as to what is happening today but it's likely two things happened. Either a) the Minneapolis doctors who fly in here on Mondays to kill babies decided to boycott the ruling and not show up because they couldn't bring themselves to dispense what they believe to be ideological charged information.
I remind you Planned Parenthood was not able to provide ANY information to the 8th Circuit Court that a fetus wasn't, biologically speaking, anything other than a separate, unique living human being. It's also possible b) the doctors are being held up by the lawyers. I know they are scrambling right now trying to do anything but comply with the language of the ruling. In any case, I thought you'd enjoy seeing this sign taped to the window this morning at the "clinic" here in Sioux Falls.
This photo was taken at 9:30 AM and the doors were still not open. The taped-on sign says they plan to close today at 3:00 P.M. The two staff cars were still there at 1 PM but no one brought in the doctor as is typical for today. All the flights into Sioux Falls this morning were on schedule.
Locals will remember the defiant banner they hung out in the fall of '06 - "THESE DOORS WILL REMAIN OPEN." Folks, they were closed today. They'll probably open tomorrow, but what we are seeing is the courts start to shut this dark regime down. The media tried to get into Planned Parenthood to do a story on them complying with the 8th Circuit ruling and I'm told that request was denied.
Not a good day for Ms. Looby for sure. It appears major confusion has indeed hit their camp. South Dakota Campaign for UNHealthy Families kick off their "Campaign to Kill" this weekend was hardly a success - a dozen people max showed up here in Sioux Falls for the door-to-door canvassing. (I'm sure Ms. Stoesz from the PP Headquarters in Minneapolis will now do more than send $100,000 and resort again to busing Minnesota anti-life college kids here on the weekends to do the campaigns door to door work.) As the door to door canvassing was to get underway, the city was hit with two inches of rain which unfortunately sent everyone out to enjoy the JazzFest home. It surely put a damper on the door-to-door canvassing.
I'm reminded of British General Cornwallis who surrendered because he figured out he couldn't fight Providence. Providence v. Planned Parenthood is indeed under way. I know who will win. May the chariots of those seeking to kill the children of God get stuck in the South Dakota mud.
