ILLINOIS RIGHT TO LIFE RESPONDS TO SURPRISE OPENING OF WAUKEGAN PLANNED PARENTHOOD

MAY 13, 2020 — (CHICAGO) Illinois Right to Life Executive Director Mary Kate Knorr responded on Wednesday to news that, in the midst of Governor Pritzker’s state-wide lockdown, Planned Parenthood has covertly opened a new facility in Waukegan, IL on Tuesday, May 12.

“Governor Pritzker reminds us every day in his press conferences that we are being confined to our homes so as to protect human life, yet a brand new abortion clinic has been allowed to open,” said Knorr.

“Churches, schools, and businesses are closed… but the nation’s largest killer of the unborn is expanding. Now is the time for righteous anger. This isn’t just about our state – 13 percent of Illinois abortions are performed on out-of-state women. If you live in this COUNTRY, you should be angry.”

Knorr delivered a live message to viewers on Facebook, which you can watch here: https://www.facebook.com/IllinoisRightToLife/videos/641735636376683/
