Governor Pritzker is expected to sign the Reproductive Health Act into law this morning. The legislation passed the General Assembly at the end of May. The bill is designed to remove restrictions on abortions later in pregnancy and any criminal penalties for doctors that perform them. Women will also see an expansion of insurance coverage for procedures and contraception.
