Pro-abortion billboard in IllinoisIllinois pro-lifers suspect the abortion conglomerate wants to establish their state as the nation's abortion capital.

Hope Clinic in Illinois has set up a billboard in Missouri close to the Illinois billboard that reads, "Welcome to Illinois, where you can get a safe, legal abortion." The Prairie State is rather loose on abortion restrictions, while there are legal limitations in Missouri.

Mary Kate Knorr of Illinois Right to Life tells OneNewsNow this just shows how money hungry Illinois abortion clinics are.

"We know that they are shipping women in from other states. The billboard, I think, was really just a pompous way from their perspective of advertising that information, overtly saying, 'Yes, you can come to Illinois from other states to receive an abortion,'" Knorr comments. "And in fact, many women do."

Despite the warning signs from lack of regulations, the Illinois Legislature is attempting to expand its abortion law.

"There isn't a single Planned Parenthood in the state that's licensed or inspected by the Department of Health," the pro-lifer laments. "They want to get rid of the few restrictions that we have, and this is absolutely an indicator that they want to make Illinois the abortion capital of the country, 100 percent."

Since New York's success with getting rid of most restrictions, abortion proponents are trying to do the same now in Illinois.
