Planned Parenthood Sells Building and is now Paying $1 a Month to Rent it Back

Planned Parenthood of Illinois sold its Springfield building to the Springfield Mass Transit District for the district's future bus transfer center.

Planned Parenthood received $470,000 in federal grant funding from SMTD for its property at 1OOO E. Washington St.

Planned Parenthood is now paying only $1 per month as a month-to-month lease with SMTD.

Tim Moore, the president of Springfield Right to Life, stated that he learned of the sale recently and has pledged to work to prevent Planned Parenthood from opening a facility elsewhere in the Springfield area.

Moore said pro-lifers will call upon local zoning officials and municipal officials to turn down any such requests from Planned Parenthood.
