The following comes from a Nov. 29 story in the Mercury News.
Two years after a public outcry prompted it to back off from establishing a clinic in Redwood City, Planned Parenthood has quietly been putting the finishing touches on another one that it intends to open Monday in North Fair Oaks.
But residents who recently got wind of the news aren’t being quiet; they have been circulating a petition in the last two weeks opposing the clinic. It has been signed by more than 1,500 residents, said Redwood City resident Linda Potter, who is against abortion.
“People are really passionate about this and incensed for many reasons,” Potter told The Daily News on Wednesday.
The clinic is set to open at 2907 El Camino Real, the site of a former Chevys Fresh Mex restaurant.
Liz Figueroa, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood in California, said the clinic will operate about 20 hours a week at first and longer in a few months, after obtaining final state approvals.
“We’re very excited about it,” Figueroa said. An official open house for the public will be scheduled at a later, undetermined date, she added.
The clinic will offer primary health care as well as reproductive health services, Figueroa said. It will provide medical abortions — which use the drug mifepristone to terminate a pregnancy — but not surgical abortions, she said.
The petition opposing the facility is addressed to Brad Ehikian because the property is owned by his family and he is listed as its leasing agent. The petition says the Planned Parenthood clinic will decrease property values and negatively impact nearby businesses by association. It also questions the medical safety standards of the regional organization, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.
“Members of our community may suffer physical harm from poor quality services,” the petition states.
Reached by phone, Ehikian would not comment on the protest effort. “Affordable health care to low-income families, that’s what I care about,” he said….

Update- opening delayed
The following comes from a KGO report on Dec. 2.
A controversial Planned Parenthood clinic, scheduled to open Monday in San Mateo County, isn’t going to open as planned. The new clinic in the North Fair Oaks neighborhood of Redwood City will not open today.
Officials tell ABC7 News that some of the equipment wasn’t fully operational yet. And they want to make sure everything is good to go before they open.
No surgical abortions! Yeah, if you believe that…. I can sell you the Golden Gate Bridge!!!! Their own CEO a year or so ago stated in their own in- house publication that he wanted ALL of his clinics to be doing surgical abortions.
They ALWAYS give that line about not doing surgical abortions, they are being
run by the king of lies……SATAN himself.
And as a side bar, the picture they have in this story, that is not the current site…that was the previous site down the block that was prevented from opening due to the lack of parking spaces (PRAISE BE TO GOD)and a WONDERFUL group of pro-lifers who were out there through storms and even a thread of a tornado.
I urge EVERYONE in the area to come out and stand up for God’s little ones.
Both surgical and chemical abortions are fatal to babies. Both surgical and chemical abortions pose health risk to women, (many times even fatal ones, if not immediately, then eventually). That being said, chemical abortions pose the greater health risk between the two methods. But aren’t we told to ignore all of this? We are rather told to accept the lie that Planned Parenthood cares about women!
You are so right, Tracy. Just to add to the proof of the LIE: Part of the protocol of RU-486, is a “follow-up exam” to determine if the poison was “successful”. In the many cases where it was only partly “successful” the next step is a surgical abortion.
Guess what? Most people in San Mateo County support abortion. I don’t think there will be much resistant to this place after awhile. Everyone seems to go along with the program.
Guess what Stephanie-most people in Germany supported Nazies and their policies too, but that did NOT make them right.
May God open your mind and your heart to the truth.
Democrat Party Leaders, are propelling Planned Parenthood to be the premier health care provider for the poor!
“The clinic will offer PRIMARY HEALTH CARE as well as reproductive health services”, Figueroa said.
The site of this PP clinic location (2907 El Camino Real, Redwood City) is right in the heart of a heavily Hispanic group of neighborhoods on either side of El Camino Real and nearby Hwy 84/Woodside Road, having worked near here for years and having had some clients many of whom were only Spanish-speaking in this area. It is typical of the Beast AKA Planned Parenthood to locate its lair very near to its prey.
You mention “clients”, what kind of clients may I ask!
Are you a Lawyer or Doctor?

Tracey, you are so right about chemical abortions posing greater risks to women. As of April 2011, according to the FDA, there have been 14 deaths, 612 hospitalizations, 58 ectopic pregnancies, 339 cases of blood loss requiring transfusions and 256 infections (48 of them severe) of women who used Mifepristone for termination of pregnancy. These numbers are most likely greater as physicians are not required to report adverse effects of drugs to manufacturers (except during clinical trials).These numbers will most likely greatly increase with the increase in chemical abortions. (I am always skeptical of reports saying that abortions are down because of the closures of abortion facilities. Minors can go to a pharmacy and receive these potent medication(s) — Citotec (misoprostol, taken first to open the cervix)–so the numbers of abortions could be increasing.
In addition, Dr. Natanson is concerned about how RU-486 acts on the reproductive system and the possibility of transgenerational effects of future offspring.
So, where do the pro-abort people see “reproductive HEALTH”?? Who is really concerned about women? Who is really responsible for the “War on Women”? It is chilling that 54% of Catholics support the Democratic platform of abortion and put Obama in the White House.
Peggy, yes this is very strange, the Democrat Party stating that they are the champions of women’s “reproductive HEALTH”! I used to think this meant making sure women could deliver their babies safely! But then we should all know by now that EVER TIME a Liberal uses a nice sounding word, phrase, or slogan, we should instantly think of the opposite! Since learning to do this, I have reduced the amount of time I spend, trying to figure out if something a liberal says, might actually have some good in it, down to zero.
Tracy: It is called “liberalspeak”. Unlike ordinary speech, it is not intended to communicate ideas but to obfuscate them. Liberals are masters at appropriating the language. “Women’s health” has nothing to do with health. It is Orwellian Newspeak for abortion rights. When conservatives want to inhibit the slaughter of the unborn, they are accused of conducting a “war on women”. “Immigrants’ Rights” means amnesty for illegals, since it should be obvious to anyone that those who break our laws by illegally entering our country have no rights other than basic human rights.
“Marriage Equality” is another absurdity gaining ground among the uninformed; the intent is to normalize what common sense has always considered an impossibility: the sexual union between members of the same sex. The parts just don’t fit. A seven year old child knows that.
Anton, let me list off a few more! When they call someone a “racist” they mean “from now on anything that person says must be discounted”. When they say we have a “war on hunger” they mean, “we are working harder than ever on confiscating your money and redistributing it to others”. When they use the term “the wealthy” they mean “practically everyone who works for a living”. When they say “minimum wage” they mean the “common wage”. And when they say “wage equality” they are giving “a description of North Korea”.
Baloney, I don’t believe the landlord cares a fig about anyone’s well being, poor or otherwise, and certainly does not care at all that babies are about to be murdered on his family’s property! Therefore, he is complicit in these planned murders and will have to answer to Our Lord for his complicity.
This man, and his family obviously, care only that they will be getting money from murderers for their 1950’s eyesore property on El Camino Real – the King’s Highway. The King will not be pleased with the actual murderers come Judgment Day nor with those who cooperated with the killers, and He will not be impressed with the deep red color of the blood of His babies on the rotting dollar bills the murderers demanded for the blood of these dead children!
“We’re very excited about it,” Figueroa said. An official open house for the public will be scheduled at a later, undetermined date, she added.”
These are NOT clinics. These are killing centers. All of the fun wardrobe and jewelry and hair dye in the world will ever mask the sheer underlying evil and darkness of heart when an individual such as Liz Figueroa proudly claims that she is “excited” about opening up a extermination mill.
A sign of the times – The diabolical disorientation that Sister Lucia of Fatima, Portugal said “was sweeping up the world.”
Definition of Clinic by the Free Online Dictionary..
“A facility, often associated with a hospital or medical school, that is devoted to the diagnosis and care of outpatients.” = Extermination is not care. It is murder. Liz Figueroa should not be excited about being devoted to murdering unborn babies.
Definition of abortion mill.
“Used pejoratively by opponents of abortion to refer to an abortion clinic.”
1. abortion mill
“Abortion mill is an anti-abortion term used to describe an abortion clinic. The term comes from the factory line process many abortion mills use, lining girls up in a row for the abortionist. This way the abortionist goes from one girl to the next and only has to spend 2 or 3 minutes aborting the baby, then on to the next girl. The term is currently used by anti-abortionists for any abortion clinic.”
