Senator Steans defends legislation on the Senate floor

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Heather Steans, a Chicago Democrat, issued the following statement on the lawsuit filed today by anti-choice groups to block House Bill 40, which protects women’s reproductive rights in Illinois and was signed into law earlier this year:

“This lawsuit is a blatant attempt to prevent poor women and state employees from exercising their legal right to choose. I firmly believe that all women should have the opportunity to make their own reproductive decisions regardless of their income level or employer. These choices should not be limited to the wealthy.”
