IPHA Statement on Supreme Court’s Overturning of Roe v. Wade
Today’s Supreme Court decision to overturn its landmark 1973 decision to protect a women’s liberty to abortion services is disheartening and a significant setback to the health of all Americans.
Access to abortion, and all reproductive health services, is a fundamental right. Denying this right not only undermines the health of marginalized populations, but it also threatens the health of every American.
We commend Governor Pritzker for his commitment to protecting access to safe and dependable reproductive health care in Illinois. We urge the Illinois General Assembly and the United States Congress to take immediate action to preserve this fundamental right in legislation.
