It was a sweetheart deal, gone awry, thanks to quick action by a local right-to-life group in Sarasota, Florida. Planned Parenthood bought land to build a new abortion clinic. Local zoning rules required that a residence be built at the back of the lot. Since PP is not in the construction business, it sold the land to Habitat for Humanity for $10.
Unfortunately for PP, the right-to-life group got wind of the deal and barraged Habitat for Humanity with emails protesting this unholy alliance. Because of the outpouring of opposition, Habitat for Humanity International urged its Sarasota affiliate to say “no deal.” So, it’s off. And Planned Parenthood loses. How sweet it is.
