Announcing Groundbreaking Expansion Projects in Missouri and Illinois
NEW: A first-of-its-kind Mobile Abortion Clinic in Illinois and PPSLRSWMO’s first rural health center in Missouri
Mobile Abortion Clinic
The Mobile Abortion Clinic is the first mobile clinic providing abortion care in the Midwest and the first for Planned Parenthood in the country.
We are meeting a unique need in a geographic area surrounded by states that have banned abortion. In the 100 days after Roe v. Wade was overturned, our health center in Fairview Heights — 20 miles from the Illinois-Missouri border — has seen an 30% increase in abortion patients. We expected a surge in patients, but it came much faster than we anticipated.
Expect to see the mobile abortion clinic on the road in Southern Illinois by the end of 2022.
Rolla Health Center
The Rolla Planned Parenthood, located at 1032 Kingshighway B, will be PPSLRSWMO’s eighth health center in Missouri where patients can access the full spectrum of preventive care including birth control, STI testing and treatment, annual exams, gender-affirming care, and vasectomies.
