Planned Parenthood Opening "RV Clinic" on Southern Illinois Border

On Monday, Planned Parenthood announced its plan to open a "mobile clinic" in an RV near the Missouri and Kentucky borders.

After Roe v. Wade was overturned by the US Supreme Court in June, the power to decide the legality of abortion fell to states and the democratic process. As a result, pro-life laws ban most abortions in Missouri and Kentucky. Unfortunately, Illinois has become a prime abortion destination for women throughout the midwest. Abortion businesses throughout the country have taken notice, and they are popping up near state borders frequently.

Planned Parenthood's "mobile clinic" will be set up inside a retrofitted RV with a lab, a waiting area, and two exam rooms. To start, the Planned Parenthood RV will offer chemical abortions (the abortion pill) up to 11 weeks gestation. Planned Parenthood hopes to offer surgical abortions in the RV by the first quarter of next year.

A Planned Parenthood spokesperson told Axios that the RV will start seeing patients at the end of October or early November.
