Planned Parenthood says the new center will provide surgical abortions as well as "medication abortion and a full range of family planning services, including birth control, annual exams, cancer screenings, STI testing, and HIV prevention, including PrEP." To avoid protests, construction of the 18,000-square-foot facility was carried out quietly in Fairview Heights, Ill. -- which is 13 miles away from Missouri's only abortion clinic. The women's health organization legally challenged Missouri in court over measures that would have forced that St. Louis facility to close. News outlets also look at what the moves mean for residents in the region. Abortion-related news also comes from Georgia.
