To be 100% clear on where I stand and what I knew.
No one with city government approved this clinic. There was no vote. The city nor the planning commission has no role in approving/disapproving specific businesses/operations. The city and the planning commission do have a role in approving a new structure. In this case, the structure was approved many years ago and various businesses, many medical related, have come and gone since then.
I first heard about this last night (2/28/19) from a text at 10:14 pm. Operations of this type do not even need to get a city business license to open. They are issued licenses by the state. They then contact the owner of the building and rent space. To my knowledge, no one in the city knew about this.
I am pro-life. The taking of innocent life is called murder. Abortion is not a matter of choice, it's a matter of life and how we value life.
