Illinois House Approves Package of Reproductive Health Care Bills on Partisan Votes
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WAND) — Illinois House Democrats approved four bills protecting reproductive health care rights Wednesday night.
Senate Bill 1344 will require insurance coverage for medication abortion, hormone therapy for people needing gender affirming care, and PEP or PrEP medication to prevent HIV.
“States led by government small enough to fit in my uterus continue to find ways to ramp up attacks and push their extreme hateful agenda that is doing such significant harm to people who need abortion care, people who need gender affirming care, the people that love them, and the people that support them,” said Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago). “As long as they continue their aggressive attacks, we will just as aggressively defend and protect the people of the state of Illinois and the people they are forcing to flee to our state to come and get care.”
