The abortionists at Planned Parenthood have been under fire in recent months after a series of undercover videos in 2015 revealed their baby-body-parts trade, catching one prominent executive saying she wanted enough compensation for the pieces of unborn babies to buy an exotic sports car.
The massive negative public reaction has led to efforts to withdraw tax funding for the business and congressional investigations with some highly uncomplimentary conclusions.
Now the organization’s branch in Illinois is facing a lawsuit for making “false accusations” against pro-life activists who had opposed its expansion of a mega-abortion clinic there. Planned Parenthood is accused of defamation for bringing up long-discredited claims made originally in a lawsuit 30 years ago that was thrown out by the U.S. Supreme Court.
A recent court ruling granted permission for an amended complaint to be filed against Planned Parenthood of Illinois, executive Steve Trombley and the Gemini Office Development company that built the clinic.
The ruling in Kane County Circuit Court in Geneva, Illinois, also dismissed some claims but left others standing and set a schedule for further filings.
