(Clinic does not open as planned)…..The controversial Planned Parenthood Clinic was scheduled to open on Thursday.
The opening was stopped by the City of El Centro. The City said the location did not meet City Code. Officials said they would not allow the Clinic to open at the chosen location until it was brought up to code. Officials representing Planned Parenthood are claiming discrimination, insinuating the City action is the result of the recent protests against the clinic. They have hinted at taking legal action. The City says they feel they are on solid legal ground in taking the action. The opening of the Clinic is on hold until the latest controversy is settled.
