053021HAO00004SPRINGFIELD –State Senator Laura Murphy (D—Des Plaines) strongly condemns the draft Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe v. Wade, the case that legalized abortion nationwide, that was leaked to the press last night. Murphy released the following statement in response to the opinion:

"It is terrifying that in 2022 a woman in this nation may be given less freedoms and choices over her body and places to receive care for it. We've worked too hard to move women forward to take a step back like this now. I will continue to fight until the right to choose is protected for all women."
