Last night, an overflow crowd of pro-lifers jammed the City Council meeting in Aurora, IL to speak out against the Planned Parenthood Abortion Fortress scheduled to open there next month.
The Aurora Beacon article about the meeting is headlined: "Anti-abortion, abortion-rights activists pack City Council".
From this headline, you'd probably guess that the numbers of pro-life and pro-abortion activists present at the meeting were more or less equal, right?
Here's how the article opens:
AURORA -- Close to 200 people packed City Council chambers Tuesday night, spilled into the hallways and trailed down stairwells -- turning the usually staid meeting into a sometimes fiery exchange, shouting down one alderman and plowing through a three-minute speaking time rule.
With many railing against a Planned Parenthood women's health center set to open in three weeks, the second-floor meeting room was bursting at the seams with 124 people signed up to talk about the health center -- an item not on the City Council's agenda. [emphasis added]
What the article doesn't say is that of the 124 people who signed up to address the City Council:
2 were pro-abortion.
122 were pro-life.
