New Planned Parenthood Clinic Secretly Constructed in Southern Illinois

CBS News Screenshot
CBS News reported Wednesday that Planned Parenthood secretly completed construction on a new facility in Fairview Heights, Illinois by using a shell company to hide the building's purpose. Fairview Heights was chosen to provide abortion services to Missouri residents since Missouri only has one remaining abortion clinic which is struggling to maintain its license. Planned Parenthood hid the true purpose of the facility via a shell company to prevent protestors from slowing down its construction and ensure that it hit its deadline.

Missouri residents will be more able to take advantage of Illinois' more relaxed abortion laws to obtain services that legislators fought against in their own state. The facility expects to be operational later this month. Click here to read more.
