HB2495

  • bush 051519SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Melinda Bush (D-Grayslake) joined legislators and activists in demanding the House take action to protect women’s reproductive rights by passing the Reproductive Health Act. The move comes a day after the Alabama State Senate voted to ban abortion and criminalize doctors who perform the procedure.

    “There’s a very real possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned in the next few years,” Bush said. “We need to take action now in Illinois to make sure that, regardless of what happens at the federal level, Illinois women maintain the right to a safe, legal abortion.”
