President Trump and his anti-choice cabal—including recently-appointed anti-choice Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch—are working night and day to overturn Roe v. Wade and take reproductive freedom away from American women. If they’re successful, things will be especially bad in Illinois.
Illinois has a “trigger” law that could criminalize abortion in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned, known as the Illinois Abortion Trigger Law. Pro-choice advocates around the state are coming together to support legislation called HB40, which would repeal the awful Illinois Abortion Trigger Law. HB40 will ensure that reproductive freedom is secure in Illinois—no matter what Donald Trump and his anti-choice allies do in Washington!
How you can help
We've already made progress. With the help of pro-choice volunteers, a coalition of pro-choice groups across the state was able to put enough pressure on State Legislators to pass HB40 in the house and the senate. We have a major rock block with Governor Rauner's threat of a veto.
Rauner made a promise to protect women's reproductive rights and we need the people of Illinois demanding that promise is kept. We need volunteers contacting thousands of pro-choice voters across the state through phone banking and door-to-door canvassing urging Rauner to sign HB40. We will give you all of the information and materials you need to be a champion for choice in Illinois.
