    I think it’s unfortunate that Planned Parenthood is located in a residential area where the surrounding homeowners & runners & dog walkers have to be concerned w/Bomb Threats & protests. There are two historic homes that aren’t being renovated because they are located next to it. I moved from the Park Tower to the Capri but imagine my shock when I pulled out of my parking garage one day to find a hooded black-cloaked scythe-wielding Grim Reaper standing on the corner protesting abortion.

    i find it so interesting that the fact that people like Robin will claim that it’s the protesting trying to close PP are the reason for the problems for the homeowners- i guess it’s too intellectual to think that a place that kills over 60 babies a week, has a Stericycle truck come by once a week to cart out baby parts, and doctors from out of state come in just to perform abortions might be the real reason for the decline of this particulare neighborhood and home values.
