Springfield Planned Parenthood to provide surgical abortions

Beginning Thursday, August 4th, 2016 Planned Parenthood in Springfield is offering surgical abortions.  This new service is igniting local pro-lifers and Springfield Right to Life.

“I think it’s a sad day for Springfield,” Tim Moore president of Springfield Right to Life said.

At this location, Planned Parenthood has only offered “medication abortions” since 2010 in which patients take one pill (RU486) at Planned Parenthood and a second pill at home to kill and miscarry the unborn child.

Pregnant adolescents and women up to 18 weeks gestation will have to make an appointment to receive this "service".  Surgical abortions can take up to a few hours where two lives go in and only one comes out alive if there are no complications.
