A large abortion mill will be opening in the Uptown area of Minneapolis in 2020. Planned Parenthood North Central States (PPNCS) announced in a January 31 article in the Star Tribune that chemical abortions (RU486 abortions) would be done there. In August 2017, when PP first announced this new building, no mention was made of abortions at this location.
Chemical abortions (also known as the “abortion pill”) kill unborn babies in a two-part process. After pregnancy has been confirmed, the abortion client takes the first drug (mifepristone) while at the abortion center and is given the second drug (misoprostol) to be taken up to 48 hours later at home. The first drug is meant to kill the baby (essentially by depriving him or her of nutrients and oxygen by blocking progesterone and destroying the lining of the uterus). The second drug causes contractions and bleeding to expel the baby. (The movie “Unplanned” depicts Abby Johnson undergoing this type of abortion.) Currently, about half of the abortions committed at the St. Paul PP are chemical abortions, with the rest being surgical abortions. It is unknown how the new Minneapolis abortion center will impact the abortion numbers in St. Paul.
The new $14.4 million, three-story building will replace the old facility which did not commit abortions on site. The initial $6.5 million was given by a local couple wanting to remain anonymous. According to the Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal (August 24, 2018), Minneapolis-based Davis is the developer of the project with bdh+young as the architect. (Davis secretly developed the Planned Parenthood facility in Little Canada in 2015). During construction, the Minneapolis PP business is operating out of a location two blocks away. Like all PP facilities, it currently dispenses abortifacient birth control and refers for abortions).
We will keep you informed of the progress of this new abortion facility and we will be starting a sidewalk counseling and prayer presence there when the killing begins. Please start thinking and praying about how you may help save babies there!
(PPNCS is based at the mega-abortion center, 671 Vandalia St. in St. Paul, and was previously known as Planned Parent-hood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota. Within the last year, this affiliate of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America [PPFA] took over the PP facilities in Nebraska and Iowa and changed its name. President and CEO Sarah Stoesz was the second highest-paid PPFA affiliate director in the U.S. in 2017 with a compensation of $476,164.
