Planned Parenthood Illinois Action supports Justice Mary Kay O’Brien for Illinois State Supreme Court!

Why We're Proud to endorse Mary Kay O’Brien for Illinois State Supreme Court, District 3:

  • She has served as both a State Representative and an Appellate Court Justice
  • She has a long record of being a fair Justice on the Illinois State Appellate Court
  • She is committee to holding herself to the highest standard of judicial ethics on the Illinois State Supreme Court

Why Should I Care About This Race?

We've seen the impact that the courts can have on our laws and lives.  At the federal level, the courts have dismantled many progressive pieces of legislation and are determined to overturn the Roe v. Wade precedent. 

The same is true at the State level. The court now has a slim pro-choice majority of 4-3. We must ensure that those numbers remain the same or increase.

States across the country are enacting harmful abortion bans and laws that would make abortion all but illegal. We must guarantee that Illinois remains a pro-choice haven in the Midwest for patients seeking essential care.

Why the other guy is bad

Justice O’Brien’s opponent is Mike Burke. Burke’s campaign is being supported by some of the most anti-choice politicians in Illinois. This group has actively worked to support the repeal of laws like the Reproductive Health Act, which made Illinois the haven state for abortion acces that is is now.

We cannot elect judges that align themselves with extreme anti-choice politicians.

This November We Take Control

All freedoms are on the ballot this year. This November, we must take control of our bodies and futures by electing leaders who are committed to fighting for our rights.
