Planned Parenthood Launches Abortion RV Going to Red State Borders to Kill Babies

The Planned Parenthood abortion chain plans to start aborting unborn babies out of the back of an RV this fall, traveling to the borders of pro-life states to do abortions and then leaving women to fend for themselves if something goes wrong.

NPR reports the abortion chain unveiled its plans for a new mobile abortion facility this week in Illinois. The specially-made RV will travel around Illinois, where abortions are legal, to sell abortion drugs and eventually surgical abortions in the first trimester, according to the report.

“Our goal is to reduce the hundreds of miles that people are having to travel now in order to access care … and meet them where they are,” Yamelsie Rodriguez, president of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, told NPR.

Rodriguez said the new mobile abortion facility will stay within the Illinois borders. But the goal is to make it easier for pregnant mothers from pro-life states to travel to abort their unborn babies.

The 37-foot RV includes two exam rooms, a waiting area and a laboratory, the AP reports. The abortion chain hopes to begin seeing patients later this month or early November, according to Axios.

Most of the states bordering Illinois protect unborn babies by banning abortions now that the U.S. Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade. These laws are saving lives because many women will chose life for their unborn babies. Studies show pro-life laws do stop abortions and save lives.

But some women still will travel to other states for abortions, especially now that the abortion industry is trying to make it more convenient to do so. According to the AP, the Fairview Heights Planned Parenthood in Illinois saw a 30-percent increase in abortion patients since the Supreme Court ruled in June.

“The mobile abortion clinic is a way to reduce travel times and distances in order to meet patients at the Illinois border,” Dr. Colleen McNicholas, chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood St. Louis, told the AP. “This will make a dramatic impact on their access.”

Other abortion groups also are working on opening new mobile abortion facilities, including Just the Pill, NPR reports. Planned Parenthood leaders said they may add more mobile units in the future, and they plan to open a new abortion facility in Rolla, Missouri in November.

But one problem that has not received much attention is what will happen to mothers who suffer abortion complications after visiting a mobile abortion facility. There was no mention of follow-up appointments or care for complications in any of the three major news outlet reports about Planned Parenthood’s new abortion RV.

Studies indicate that abortion complications are more common than what abortion activists often claim, with as many as one in 17 women requiring hospital treatment. A recent study by the Charlotte Lozier Institute found that the rate of abortion-related emergency room visits by women taking the abortion drug mifepristone increased more than 500 percent between 2002 and 2015.

Abortion drugs are dangerous and can be deadly for the mother as well as her unborn baby. In the United States, the FDA has linked mifepristone to at least 26 women’s deaths and 4,000 serious complications between 2000 and 2018. However, under President Barack Obama, the FDA stopped requiring that non-fatal complications from mifepristone be reported. So the numbers almost certainly are much higher.

However, abortion drugs are big business. Mifepristone now is used for more than half of all abortions in the United States, according to a new report from the Guttmacher Institute. In 2020, the drug was responsible for 54 percent of all unborn babies’ abortion deaths, up from 39 percent in 2017, the pro-abortion research group found.

LifeNews recently published an article highlighting eight facts that every woman should know about the abortion drugs, including a life-saving new treatment that can reverse the effects of mifepristone and potentially save the baby’s life.
