Statement in response to leaked draft Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization

Planned Parenthood of Illinois is furious that the Supreme Court is prepared to ignore half a century of settled law and end the constitutional right to an abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade. But it’s also not a surprise.  We have been preparing for this decision for years, and we will continue to ensure that every patient, no matter where they live, has access to the health care they need and deserve.

Statement in response to Supreme Court's decision on the Texas abortion ban, SB 8

In Illinois, we are not waiting for the Court to decide the fate of reproductive freedom. Our doors are open and we are actively preparing for the waves of pregnant Texans fleeing the state. Access to essential health care, like abortion, should not depend on who you are, how much money you make, or your zip code. We will continue to fight for everyone to access the health care they need no matter what.
