No date is set for a planned special legislative session to strengthen Illinois’ abortion rights. Governor Pritzker said legislators are working to craft the proper legislation. Pritzker announced plans for a special session “in the coming weeks” after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June. However, that timeline was extended to “the coming months” in July.
