Abortion access is under attack across the country.
Texas’ newly enacted SB8 bans abortion after six-weeks of pregnancy, before many people know they’re pregnant. If a court does not intervene, this abortion ban will take effect on September 1 and will force most Texas patients seeking an abortion to flee the state. And the Supreme Court is set to hear a case about Mississippi’s abortion ban this fall. The ruling next summer could gut or overturn Roe v. Wade, creating an even greater divide between those who live in a state that protects access to abortion and those who don’t.
Reproductive health champions have spent years working to solidify reproductive health care access in Illinois, including passing the Reproductive Health Act (RHA) signed into law by Gov. Pritzker in 2019—one of the most proactive state laws in the nation. The RHA is a powerful example of what elected leaders can do at the state level to expand abortion access and prepare for a future without Roe.
But we can’t stop there.
Join PPIA and join the fight to protect access to safe, legal abortion in Illinois—no matter what.
Illinois is a safe haven surrounded by states that have enacted draconian and medically-unnecessary abortion restrictions. We’ve been actively preparing for a post-Roe world—and we need your support.
Take Action Now
What’s happening in Texas?
Unless this law is blocked by the courts, Texas will ban abortion at approximately six weeks of pregnancy starting September 1. Because many people don’t know they’re pregnant at six weeks, this law would effectively outlaw abortion for most Texans.
It’s unconscionable — and unconstitutional.
