Planned Parenthood moves to Springfield's West Side

From the State Journal-Register...

The move to 601 N. Bruns Lane, after $220,000 in renovations in recent months, surprised residents and business owners who learned they would be neighbors of Planned Parenthood only after signs were posted this past weekend.

Some residents said they oppose Planned Parenthood because it provides abortions. And some members of Springfield Right to Life protested on the sidewalk outside the new facility, which was built in 1988 and formerly housed a cell phone retailer, a Republican Party call center and a private business college.

The new site, like the now-vacant health center at 1000 E. Washington St., provides the abortion pill, known as “medication abortion,” to terminate a pregnancy in the first trimester.
