Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Freedom of Choice Act and amends the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975. Establishes a State policy recognizing a woman's reproductive rights. Prohibits State agencies and units of local government (including home rule units) from restricting a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy before fetal viability or at any time if medically necessary. Repeals a Section declaring that the General Assembly would prohibit all abortions unless necessary for the preservation of a woman's life if Roe v. Wade is overruled or significantly modified. Effective immediately.
