Expanding Abortion Access

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. Illinois is a critical access state for abortion, and the numbers of patients who will turn to Illinois for care is only going to increase as Roe v. Wade is further gutted or overturned outright. 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 We’ve repealed dangerous abortion restrictions and passed the Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which enshrines reproductive rights as fundamental rights in Illinois.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!

We're calling on Illinois leaders act now to ensure equal access to abortion for everyone, no matter their zip code, income, or identity.
