Planned Parenthood Illinois Action released the following statement on J.B. Pritzker's win in the Illinois governor's race.
"Planned Parenthood Illinois Action congratulates Governor-elect J.B. Pritzker and looks forward to working with him to ensure that all women have access to a full range of reproductive health care, including access to safe and legal abortion.
With the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, it is more critical than ever that Illinois is led by a governor who is unequivocal in his support of reproductive rights. The Governor-elect's commitment to reproductive freedom and the health care provided by Planned Parenthood has been steadfast for decades. J. B. Pritzker will protect Illinois as an oasis for reproductive health care, not only for Illinoisans, but for all those people in surrounding states who must travel to receive the care they need."
