Planned Parenthood used a shell company to secretly build, over the course of a year, a mega abortion clinic in the city of St. Louis, Missouri.
The controversial multinational abortionist discreetly erected its new facility near the last abortion clinic (RHS PP) that was active throughout the state. A judge, Michael Stelzer, denied a license to the abortion clinic for accumulating “troubling violations” in patient safety and health, according to Fox News.
“Since August 2018, Planned Parenthood has used a shell company to construct the facility, leaving no public trace that the former medical office would become one of the largest abortion clinics in the country,” CBS News reported.
Colleen McNicholas, medical director of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis region, said they did so to avoid possible demonstrations and delays.
“We were really intentional and thoughtful about making sure that we were able to complete this project as expeditiously as possible,” McNicholas told CBS.
In late August, a federal judge blocked passage of one of the most comprehensive unborn child protection laws in the United States less than 24 hours before the law went into effect in Missouri.
The rule, called the Missouri Right to Life of the Unborn Child Act, was intended to restrict the few remaining abortion grounds in the state to a maximum of 8 weeks of life.
It also recognized that “God is the author of life” and stated that Missouri “and all its political subdivisions are a ‘sanctuary of life’ that protects pregnant women and their unborn children.”
