Gov. Pritzker: Act Now to Ensure Equal Access to Abortion

Roe v. Wade is on the cusp of being overturned. If that happens, every state surrounding Illinois will either quickly ban or severely restrict abortion access. In the last few years, we've made a lot of progress protecting reproductive rights in Illinois. We've repealed dangerous abortion restrictions and passed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which enshrines reproductive rights as fundamental rights in Illinois.

However, rights are meaningless without the resources to access abortion!

Tell Gov. JB Pritzker that Illinois must step up and ensure equal access to abortion!

Right now — in Illinois and most of our neighboring states — many people cannot access the abortion they need and deserve. Barriers include cost, distance, lack of child care, and no paid time off work. This situation will only become more dire once Roe falls and millions of people find themselves in a vast abortion desert with Illinois serving as the health care oasis.

We need Gov. Pritzker's leadership to ensure Illinois is the critical access state he promised it to be. Gov. Pritzker needs to cut the red tape that puts barriers between providers and patients. As New York, California, and Oregon have done, Illinois needs to step up with funding that will support providers, advocates, and patients. 

Urge Gov. Pritzker to act now to ensure Illinois lives up to its promise to be a critical access state for abortion.

Together, we can make sure that everyone, no matter their zip code, income, or identity, can access abortion in Illinois.
