Reproductive Rights


Guarding Reproductive Rights

Earlier this year, we saw an important expansion of reproductive rights in Illinois with the passage of HB40, which ensures the right to choose for Illinois women is protected even if Roe v. Wade is overturned by a radical Trump Supreme Court.  HB40 also extends abortion healthcare coverage to Medicaid recipients and State employees because no woman should be prevented from exercising a fundamental right merely because of income or the job they hold. Unfortunately, extreme Republicans in the General Assembly are already threatening to repeal this important law.

We can’t let that happen.

I believe every woman has the right to make her own decisions about her health care – and that includes reproductive health. As your representative in Springfield, I will oppose any effort to limit Illinois women’s access to contraception and safe, legal abortion.

I am proud that Illinois stands as a champion of women’s reproductive rights here in the Midwest, and I will fight any attempts to restrict women’s choices about our own healthcare and our own lives.
