   New Act                                                                     
   720 ILCS 510/1 rep.                                                         

        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.
