CINCINNATI, Ohio, July 31, 2008 ( – A campaign by citizens on Cincinnati’s west side who displayed their opposition to the opening of a branch office of Planned Parenthood by posting yard signs which read, “Save Our Children, Stop Planned Parenthood,” has been the victim of what appears to be an organized effort to steal all the signs in an attempt to silence the protest.

A press release from Protect Cincinnati, a grass-roots group organized to halt the encroachment of Planned Parenthood in the Western Hills and Greater Cincinnati community, states, “Only a few (signs) are visible because nearly all that citizens have put up have been stolen. Those stored in an alternate location have also been stolen, along with an additional supply of picketers’ signs, t-shirts, and brochures.”

Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Ohio recently bought the property at 2016 Ferguson Road in Western Hills under the name Mount Auburn Parking LLC. Planned Parenthood frequently uses the deception of acquiring property under a false name in order to deflect attention from its plans to enter a community.

This new PP branch office is located in a residential area, within a block of Western Hills High School. Students are bussed to Western Hills High School from other areas of the city, and the student population is predominately African American.

Planned Parenthood’s aggressive targeting of minority populations for its services has been well documented.

Recently, Planned Parenthood has been purchasing property in areas of the US with higher African American populations, such as Aurora, Illinois, Houston, Texas, and Portland, Oregon.
