Making Illinois a Safe Place in the Post-Roe Era
Thanks to Donald Trump’s Supreme Court, the anti-choice extremists have achieved their 50-year goal of relegating Roe v. Wade to the ash heap of history. We need your help to ensure that access to reproductive healthcare remains the law in Illinois in a post-Roe era for ALL women.
The 2022 election will be the most important Illinois election in 50 years! All Illinois General Assembly seats will be up for election, along with every Constitutional office (including the Governor and the Attorney General), the Cook County Board President, and all 17 Cook County Commissioners. In addition, anti-choice extremists are just one seat away from controlling the seven-member Illinois Supreme Court. If we lose the court, extremists will use the opportunity to make the case to overturn HB 40 and the RHA, consequentially reinstating Illinois’ “trigger law” that makes abortion illegal without Roe.
If Personal PAC does not succeed in the 2022 Illinois elections, women between the two coasts will have no place to turn for their reproductive healthcare. Personal PAC, along with other Illinois pro-choice organizations, is recruiting volunteers to be ready to mobilize for the campaign season in larger numbers than ever before. Visit the Jane’s Army website for more information or to sign up.
In 2021, the Illinois General Assembly removed the last restriction on access to a safe and legal abortion across the state. The Illinois Youth Health & Safety Act repeals Illinois’ Parental Notice of Abortion (PNA) law, which put the lives of youth at risk and attempted to rob young people of their basic human rights and further traumatize them with restrictions and delays in access to health care.
Thank you to all of our supporters and pro-choice champions for making Illinois a 100% pro-choice state. To learn more about the bill, please click below:
Illinois: The Pro-Choice Safeguard of the Midwest
In 2020, more than 9,600 women came from neighboring states to seek a safe, legal abortion in Illinois. We fight to make sure Illinois stays a haven of choice no matter how radicalized our neighbors become.
