NY Community Prevents Construction of New Abortion Facility

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

A pro-life group Brighton Residents Against Violence to Everyone (BRAVE) has successfully prevented the construction of an abortion clinic in Brighton, New York. Planned Parenthood terminated their lease after BRAVE filed suit against the Brighton Planning Board accusing them of not reviewing the many issues an abortion clinic can bring to a community before approving site plans. A Brighton resident and a member of BRAVE, Carol Crossed, attributes the success to persistent grassroots dialogue among community neighbors and with Brighton officials.
