Washington, D.C. – In response to the news that Planned Parenthood will open a mega-facility later this month in Illinois, Jill Stanek, SBA List National Campaign Chair and an Illinois native, issued the following statement:
“Once again, Planned Parenthood has proven they are in the business of abortion on demand. As Missourians expand protections for unborn children and their mothers, Planned Parenthood is working right next door to make Illinois the late-term abortion capital of the Midwest. The Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act is one of the strongest pro-life laws in the country, including provisions that limit late-term abortions – a policy 82 percent of Missouri voters support – but Planned Parenthood seeks to undermine these protections for profit. This secretly constructed mega-facility placed strategically at Missouri’s backdoor will perform abortions up to 24 weeks, as Illinois’ extreme abortion law allows. It’s clear Planned Parenthood thinks nothing of preying on vulnerable women to advance their extreme abortion agenda.”
