A new Planned Parenthood clinic has opened to the public in Waukegan, IL, apparently financed by Planned Parenthood donations.

Jennifer Welch, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois, gave this statement in a press release: “The Covid-19 pandemic created a growing urgency for increased access to essential health care in the region. I’m proud that PPIL is able to open our doors to help area residents seeking high-quality sexual and reproductive health care.”

The press release further states that the Waukegan clinic will provide abortion medication, but it does not mention surgical abortions.

Planned Parenthood is very fortunate to be able to open new facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many businesses have been required to temporarily close their doors, and for some that closure has become permanent since they have no income to sustain themselves. This is yet another instance of the Illinois government's favoritism benefiting the abortion industry financially.
