House Bill 40

Springfield- A bill ensuring abortion remains legal in Illinois is receiving a lot of attention from both sides of the issue.

House Bill 40, being sponsored by Representative Sara Feigenholtz (R-Chicago), would remove a trigger language from the 1975 Illinois Abortion Law, that would allow abortions to become illegal in the state. “We are very simply striking that language because we do not want to go back, we want to go forward, and we want to make an affirmative statement that Illinois will be a state where abortion services will be safe, legal, and accessible.” said Rep. Feigenholtz.
