Women's Reproductive Rights in Illinois: A matter of justice, equity and compassion
HB40 is a bill that safeguards and ensures access to legal and safe abortions in Illinois if Roe v. Wade is overturned. It also would repeal provisions that currently limit healthcare options for women who work for the state government, receive their healthcare insurance through state policies, or receive Medicaid. HB40 passed both houses and awaits Governor Rauner's signature. While the Governor promised in writing during his campaign that he would support this exact type of bill, he has wavered in his support of women's reproductive rights and may not sign the bill.
