Attributed to Jennifer Welch, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Illinois Action

“Today we sent a cease and desist notice to the Judicial Fairness Project for the false use of Planned Parenthood Illinois Action’s (PPIA) logo and taking quotes about the security of abortion access in Illinois out of context. Unlike what the Judicial Fairness Project stated in texts to supporters, abortion access is in grave danger in Illinois. When Roe was overturned, abortion remained legal in Illinois because we passed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which recognizes that providing abortion is health care, not criminal activity, and includes regulations that reflect current medical standards, not political standards. However, a change in the Governor’s office, a shift in the Illinois Supreme Court or a proposed federal ban would supersede the RHA, meaning abortion could be banned or severely restricted in Illinois. The Judicial Fairness Project is clearly trying to mislead and confuse voters because they know people are motivated to keep Illinois a safe haven for care. We denounce their tactics and urge voters to seek the facts from reputable organizations.”
