Planned Parenthood celebrated the opening of two new abortion businesses Monday on the East Coast.

The largest abortion chain in America, Planned Parenthood’s new abortion facilities are located in Tallahassee, Florida and Elizabeth, New Jersey. It appears that both will sell abortions up to 10 weeks of pregnancy.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports the Florida facility will offer a “full range of sexual and reproductive health services,” including abortion. The report did not say what types of abortions will be provided or how late in pregnancy, and LifeNews could not find details on the abortion facility’s website.

The new facility in New Jersey advertises abortions up to 10 weeks of pregnancy by medication abortion.

In Florida, abortion activists said they hope to see more than 5,000 patients a year at the new facility.

“We believe part of having a healthy community is making sure everyone has access to the care they need,” said Lillian Tamayo, president of the Florida abortion affiliate. “This new facility will also allow us to expand reproductive health care access in the South which faces some of the most deplorable public health outcomes and barriers to reproductive health care.”

An anonymous donor provided funding for the abortion facility, according to the local news.

In New Jersey, state politicians joined abortion activists Monday for the ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Elizabeth location, a local news outlet reports.

Jackie Cornell, principal deputy commissioner with the New Jersey Department of Health, said Planned Parenthood helped her when she was a young woman.

“Planned Parenthood clinics like this one offer an array of vital reproductive health care services – from well-woman check-ups to birth control to abortion,” Cornell said. “We need them now more than ever because of threats at the federal level.”

Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood announced plans to open at least 10 new abortion facilities throughout the country. It did not reveal where the locations will be.

In January, it also sneakily opened a large new abortion facility Illinois to take advantage of a new state law that forces taxpayers to fund abortions. The new Flossmore facility sells abortion drugs up to 10 weeks of pregnancy and surgical abortions up to 20 weeks.

There also is speculation that Planned Parenthood may open a new abortion center in the heart of Amish country in conservative Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Others are expected in Texas and Minnesota. In late March, a Texas Planned Parenthood affiliate announced a huge donation of $9 million to open two new facilities in the state, according to the Christian Post. The donation was anonymous, but only someone with extreme wealth could have given it. In 2017, an anonymous family in the mid-west also donated $6.5 million to Planned Parenthood’s Minnesota affiliate.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in America, aborting about 320,000 unborn babies every year. Its most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 billion, with about half a billion dollars coming from taxpayers.

The U.S. Department of Justice currently is investigating whether Planned Parenthood illegally sold aborted baby body parts.
