  • Illinois governor signs sweeping abortion protection bill into law

    Democratic Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker signed a sweeping abortion access protection billinto law Wednesday.

    "Today we proudly proclaim that in this state, we trust women," Pritzker said at a bill signing event at the Chicago Cultural Center. "And in Illinois we guarantee as a fundamental right a woman's right to choose."
    The bill's signage comes as part of a wave of Democratic states opting to codify abortion protections as a slew of Republican states push forward bills restricting abortion access. Lawmakers have pushed such restrictions in an effort to force a potential legal challenge of the landmark Supreme Court Roe V. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide in 1973.

    Illinois's law was archaic. If Roe v. Wade was overturned, abortions throughout the state would revert to criminal endeavors with some pretty strict penalties. Nobody cared while Roe seemed unassailable, but now suddenly people are worried that Roe might actually get overturned.

    Pete (sees no possible scenario which would result in the outdated Illinois law taking effect, but it's a good idea to update it anyway)
