Before the Rally even started, God gave an incredible blessing. A couple stopped on their way out of the Planned Parenthood and told our sidewalk counselors that they had decided not to go through with the abortion. Though the 40 Days Campaign hadn’t even started yet, God was already doing wondrous things!

Aurora, Illinois Reaches Settlement With Pro-Life Advocates for Abortion Protests

aurora

Aurora, IL (LifeNews.com) — The city of Aurora and pro-life advocates under the banner of the Pro-Life Action League have settled a years-long lawsuit related to protests at the large new Planned Parenthood abortion facility. The Aurora city council agreed to the settlement that lays out provisions protecting the rights of pro-life advocates at the abortion center.

A win for pro-life advocates, the agreement recognizes the rights of protesters and secures comprehensive protection for citizens who wish to speak out in front of one of the nation’s largest abortion facilities.

Eric Scheidler, executive director of the Pro-Life Action League, told LifeNews.com he is thrilled with the agreement.

“With this new agreement in place, the pro-life community’s peaceful outreach to abortion-bound mothers can proceed without hindrance, and the uncertainty and confusion that has characterized the police response to pro-life protests at Planned Parenthood should finally end,” he said.

The settlement exemplifies the kind of cooperation between municipalities and peaceful pro-life activists that is needed across the country, he said.

The new agreement demonstrates that there is no need to silence protesters in “bubble zones” like the one to be enacted later this month in Chicago and another that was recently struck down that covered Pittsburgh, he added.
