Making Illinois a Safe Place in the Post-Roe Era

Thanks to Donald Trump’s anti-choice Supreme Court, the dismantling of Roe v. Wade isn’t just a threat; it is inevitable. 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 when Roe is overturned.

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.  Stayed posted for additional information about the 2022 election, including Personal PAC’s endorsements.

#RepealPNA

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 teenagers 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:

The Insanity of Religious Refusals

Women who receive treatment at Catholic health care facilities that adhere to the Catholic Bishops’ “Ethical and Religious Directives” are being denied basic and life-saving care. Even when a pregnancy may be threatening their health and lives, women are refused abortions, contraceptives, and tubal ligation. Men are refused vasectomies. Rape victims are refused emergency contraception, and trans patients have been refused care. Yet the Chicago City Council recklessly voted to give $5.6 million taxpayer dollars to Catholic Presence Health Care, dooming women across the city to incomplete access to reproductive health care and robbing them of their basic human right to control their lives, bodies and futures.
