Planned Parenthood officials are contending the group protesting a new facility location in Oakland County is twisting the truth.
"We don't know if we are even going to perform abortions there," said Lori Lamerand, CEO of Planned Parenthood Mid and South Michigan.
The problem with this statement is Lori Lamerand told pro-abortion Detroit News columnist Laura Berman in June of 2011 that Planned Parenthood was planning on performing abortions at this facility despite protests from the neighboring hotel owners. The article which notes Planned Parenthood's plans to perform abortions at the Oakland County facility is even posted on Planned Parenthood's web site.
Carey, who took the hotel's case for free, says the owners hoped they could persuade Planned Parenthood to operate a nonsurgical facility. He has reached out for financial support from those against abortion to wage the court fight.
But Lamerand is holding firm to a plan to create what the organization delicately calls "a full-service clinic" that would provide reproductive and contraceptive services, including abortion.
