Planned Parenthood announced Monday it would soon launch a mobile abortion clinic in southern Illinois.

The clinic, within a recreational vehicle, will house a waiting area for patients, a laboratory, and two exam rooms.

"The only thing that will change is the fact that now they might only have to drive five hours instead of nine hours," added the chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood in the region, Dr. Colleen McNicholas. According to her, patients are still given the first abortion-inducing pill, mifepristone, on-site — just like they would be at a permanent facility. Further, patients are offered counseling about the second pill, misoprostol.

Abortion is legal in Illinois up until viability and even after in cases in which"the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the patient." The organization says vacuum aspiration is used as the primary method of in-clinic abortion up to 16 weeks. Upwards of 16 weeks, a dilation and evacuation procedure is used.

They must really need dead babies to go through all this. 👿

Good. Republicans have stripped away all pretense of caring for families. You create the harsh situations and then blame poor ppl.

This summer Gov. Prickzger said 'Illinois is now an island, an oasis in the nation, protecting women's reproductive rights' Is there any truth that he is changing the slogan on the State license plates from 'Land of Lincoln' to 'Abortion Oasis'?
