House Bill 40, which safeguards abortion rights in Illinois, has passed the Illinois Senate with 33 votes. This is a great and important step for ensuring that reproductive choice and access are protected in our state.
HB40 will head to the desk of Governor Bruce Rauner, who has previously threatened to veto this bill. This is a flip-flop on reproductive rights for Governor Rauner, who ran on being a “pro-choice Republican” and has donated thousands of dollars to Planned Parenthood.
If we want to see this pass, we need everyone on deck. Please call Governor Rauner today at 217-782-0244 (Springfield) or 312-814-2121 (Chicago) and demand he stick by his word as a “pro-choice Republican” and sign HB40 into law. Together, we can ensure Illinois won’t go back.
