Statement from Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot on Governor J.B. Pritzker Signing the Reproductive Health Act into Law

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

“Today, the state of Illinois sent a clear message that we will protect the fundamental right of residents and expand access to reproductive health care. As several states pass dangerous and arguably unconstitutional laws that limit quality care, we choose to treat maternal care, contraception and reproductive care as health care. I want to thank Governor Pritzker and the General Assembly for their urgent action.”
