Governor Pritzker wants the federal government to be like Illinois when it comes to abortion rights. The governor called on Congress yesterday to codify abortion access into federal law. He touted steps Illinois has taken to protect abortion services should the U.S. Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade. However, the U.S. Senate didn’t pass the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would make abortion rights law at the federal level.
