On Monday, Planned Parenthood officials announced plans for a mobile clinic that will travel to the border of Illinois to meet abortion patients residing in neighboring states.

The organization has invested in a 37-foot RV that will remain in Illinois, where abortion is legal, but travel close to the border of neighboring states to increase abortion access for residents in Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee.

According to the Associated Press, Planned Parenthood locations in Illinois have been overwhelmed with out-of-state patients seeking abortions since the Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Planned Parenthood reported that since June, its Fairview Heights clinic witnessed a 30% increase in abortion patients and a 340% increase from patients outside Missouri or Illinois.

The president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, Yamelsie Rodriguez, stated that the increase in patients means longer wait times. Rodriguez reported that before the court’s ruling, patients waited an average of four days to receive an abortion. Now, she said, patients are waiting an average of two-and-a-half weeks.
