New Law Makes Abortion 'Fundamental Right'

"There is a war against women, a war on bodily autonomy," Cassidy said. "Our opponents are using hateful, untrue, and outright misogynist rhetoric which escalates daily and endangers women everywhere."

The Reproductive Health Act goes beyond the controversial HB-40 measure former Republican Governor Bruce Rauner signed in 2017. The new law requires health insurance companies cover abortion procedures, it blocks husbands from preventing their wife from getting an abortion, and it assures doctors they won't face any criminal or civil penalties for performing the procedure.
