Planned Parenthood Secretly Builds Abortion Facility in Illinois

Generally, if you’re trying to hide what you’re doing, it’s probably something you shouldn’t be doing. I assume  Planned Parenthood management might have known that, while they built their new abortion mega-center near the Missouri border. The last remaining Missouri abortion facility, in St. Louis, is currently running without a license, awaiting a final decision from an administrative hearing commissioner this month.

CBS News reports, “After over a year of secret construction, Planned Parenthood announced its newest abortion facility on Wednesday: an 18,000-square-foot mega-clinic in southern Illinois. The new location is just 13 miles away from Missouri’s last remaining abortion clinic, a facility in St. Louis fighting to keep its license.

Since August 2018, Planned Parenthood has used a shell company to construct the facility, leaving no public trace that the former medical office would become one of the largest abortion clinics in the country. CBS News first visited the site in August, while it was still being built.”



Buried in what is basically a prop piece for Planned Parenthood is an interesting nugget; “The small Planned Parenthood used to provide services beyond just abortion, like birth control and cancer screenings. But in 2018, Missouri’s abortion clinics stopped offering medication abortion — commonly known as a pill abortion — and referred patients seeking that method to the Belleville location.  After that, the Illinois Planned Parenthood became flooded with abortion patients from Missouri. ” The following quotes imply that at the center tries to still provide non-abortion services, but they ultimately favor killing preborn babies instead of cancer screenings.
 
The pro-life community is already planning to rally against the new abortion facility, with a rally planned for next Wednesday. To get involved with the rally, contact Sarah Minnich at sminnich@studentsforlife.org.
