(Life News) Planned Parenthood just quietly opened another huge abortion facility in Illinois.
In the midst of the coronavirus shutdowns, churches and businesses across Illinois are closed, and people are being forced to postpone important medical care. Meanwhile, abortion facilities continue to abort unborn babies in elective abortions – and expand their life-destroying practices.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Planned Parenthood opened its newest facility Tuesday in Waukegan. The huge new facility will abort unborn babies for any reason up to 20 weeks – many likely at taxpayers’ expense.
The facility boasts of 100 parking spaces, five exam rooms and two procedure rooms, according to the report. The abortion chain said it chose the location because Lake County is the third most populated county in the state and STD rates are growing. It also hopes to draw women from Wisconsin, which has pro-life laws that protect unborn babies and mothers.
“The proximity to Wisconsin — a state that poses stringent legal barriers to abortion — was a critical factor in choosing the location,” Jennifer Welch, Planned Parenthood of Illinois CEO, said in a statement.
Right now, because of the coronavirus restrictions, the new facility is limiting its services to elective abortions and a few other actual medical services, the Daily Herald reports.
Mary Kate Knorr, executive director of Illinois Right to Life, expressed outrage at the “remarkable and disgusting irony” of opening a life-destroying business in the midst of a health crisis.
“As was the case in Fairview Heights, Planned Parenthood went unnoticed by applying for permits and licenses under the name of a shell company. They opened their doors on Tuesday, May 12 – in the midst of Governor Pritzker’s stay-at-home order,” Knorr said in an email to supporters.
