On Tuesday, April 25th, the Illinois House approved HB40 protecting women's access to abortions in Illinois in the future. Thank you to Representative Sara Feigenholtz for sponsoring this legislation and the IL House members who supported it. Thank you to all the Moving Forward supporters who help raise awareness and phone bank in support of this bill.
The bill has moved to the IL Senate where it is expected to pass as well. Governor Rauner, a past supporter for Planned Parenthood, has indicated he would veto this bill if it passed, but has not commented since Tuesday. It can't hurt for everyone to contact your State Senator's office and the Governor's office and let them know we continue to support this bill.
