CHICAGO – Planned Parenthood of Illinois applauds the Illinois General Assembly for protecting patients seeking sexual and reproductive health care by passing the Deceptive Practices of Limited Services Pregnancy Centers Act, Senate Bill 1909 (SB 1909). This bill holds organizations accountable for presenting fraudulent and false information to patients seeking reproductive health care in Illinois.

Attributed to Jennifer Welch, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois

"Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL) is thrilled Senate Bill 1909 passed the House and is headed to the Governor’s desk. This bill holds anti-abortion Limited Service Pregnancy Centers (LSPC) accountable for spreading misinformation and deceiving patients who are seeking reproductive health care. At a time when access to health care is under attack like never before, it’s critical that people have access to accurate and unbiased information when making decisions about their health. 

PPIL provides reliable and medically-accurate information to our patients about the full range of abortion care options. LSPCs routinely spread misinformation and use deceptive practices that lead to confusion, anxiety, and even physical harm for our patients. 

We look forward to Governor JB Pritzker signing SB 1909 and ensuring individuals have the medically-accurate information and resources they need to make decisions that are best for their bodies, their lives and their futures."
