According to CBS News Planned Parenthood has been building the facility in secret in Illinois, since August of 2018.
The 18,000-square-foot building in Fairview Heights was constructed using a shell company to hide the fact that Planned Parenthood was bringing its expertise to rural America.
The cowardly act of hiding behind a shell company is indicative of what Planned Parenthood has been doing for decades, taking government taxpayer funds and purposely conflating its services under the guise of providing reproductive health care for low-income women.
A study conducted about 5-years ago concluded that 94% of healthcare services provided by Planned Parenthood are abortion services.
This is perhaps why Planned Parenthood cleverly hid their state-of-the-art “death-chamber” from public view.
Preventing “Right-To-Life” advocates and concerned legislators from weigh in on the controversial facility only a few miles from the Missouri border – which restricts the premise of “abortion on demand.”
Timothy Meads an editor at “Townhall” noted within a tweet, “Planned Parenthood is announcing the opening of a new mega-facility close to states where abortion access is restricted. The new clinic was built in secret in Illinois, near the Missouri border.”

Colleen McNicholas, the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood for the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, acknowledged that the facility was built in secret to avoid protesters.
She admitted that past projects had run into problems once the public realized the construction was for an abortion provider.
In one incident, a communications company refused to install telephone and data lines; in another, a cabinet maker never delivered their order. In Birmingham, Alabama, protesters took to social media condemning the abortion mill.
“We were really intentional and thoughtful about making sure that we were able to complete this project as expeditiously as possible because we saw the writing on the wall — patients need better access, so we wanted to get it open as quickly as we could,” McNicholas told CBS.
Women from across the Midwest seeking abortions have flocked to Illinois, turning it into what Mary Kate Knorr, the executive director of Illinois Right to Life, an anti-abortion access group, calls “the abortion capital of the Midwest.”
“It’s a travesty that this is happening,” Knorr said in an interview with CBS News. “It’s a travesty that women come here to get an abortion.”
