Update on Planned Parenthood's Invasion of Aurora, IL

This email comes from a friend, so I thought that I would post it:
Dear all,

In case you haven't heard, Planned Parenthood tried to sneak into Aurora, IL by building a huge clinic (the largest in the nation?) under another name. They are scheduled to open on Sept. 18th. The pro-life community found out about this a couple of weeks ago and is trying to do everything they can to keep it from opening. (See message below.) They had a very large rally there this past weekend, with over 1000 pro-lifers present, and plan another one this coming Saturday. I know many of you won't be able to make it, but if you can forward this to any family and friends who might live in or near the Chicago area and encourage them to go, that would be great. It seems like a small thing to ask, but if we all work together we can make a big impact. Thanks!

>Rally a success. Please read on!
>Last night's Council meeting was amazing! One hundred pro-lifers,

>for a true investigation of fraud by PP.
>I'll say more later at the Families Against Planned Parenthood blog >a little later, but for now I just want to say how proud I am of everyone who stood up and spoke or came to support the effort,
>which lasted until 1:30 in the morning!
>Here's the blog address:
>Now I've got to ask for you help -- again.

>I'll say more in a minute about why it's so important that young

>tell you exactly how you can help them do it:
>1. Please encourage IN PERSON OR BY PHONE anyone you know from
