04052017CM0467rSPRINGFIELD – With legislation to ensure women’s right to make their own reproductive decisions in Illinois now on Gov. Bruce Rauner’s desk, State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) issued the following statement:

“I hope that the governor will do the right thing and sign House Bill 40. This legislation ensures that women can make decisions about their health care regardless of their income, employer or if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Gov. Rauner’s signature would send a strong message to women in Illinois that reproductive decisions will remain in their hands.”

State Senator Laura Murphy co-sponsored House Bill 40, which removes Illinois’ “trigger” law that would make abortion illegal in the state if Roe v. Wade is overturned. The legislation was sent to the governor’s desk Monday.
