ILLINOIS STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 22: Statement from Speaker Madigan on the Passage of the Reproductive Health Act
Illinois State House District 22 issued the following announcement on May 28.
Speaker Michael J. Madigan released the following statement Tuesday regarding House passage of the Reproductive Health Act:
“In Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Ohio, and Missouri, extreme politicians are leading an unprecedented assault on women’s rights. Even more states are poised to follow. Their goal is clear: To overturn Roe v. Wadeand strip away federal protections for women’s health. And if they succeed Illinois women could face many of the same life-threatening restrictions.
“By passing the Reproductive Health Act, we ensure women’s health will always be a fundamental right in Illinois. This vote makes it clear that Illinois women will always have the right to make their own medical decisions – regardless of what Donald Trump, his right-wing judges and extreme politicians in other states do.”
