REPORT: New Bill Would Make Illinois Most 'Abortion-Friendly' in the Nation, Permit 'Self-Abortions'

New legislation backed by Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker would make the state the most “abortion-friendly” in the United States and effectively legalize “self-abortions” through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker promised to make his state the most ‘abortion-friendly’ in the nation, and a pro-life law firm warns a new bill would do just that — going far beyond the scope of Roe v. Wade, including legalizing self-abortions,” reports Fox News.

“The Reproductive Health Act, similarly named as the New York bill that was publicly celebrated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, would make abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, according to the Thomas Moore Society’s report,” adds the article.

The bill is similar to other bills passed in New York, Vermont, and Virginia that permit the practice known as “late-term” abortions.
