PEORIA, Ill. – State Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, released the following statement after reports that the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade:

“All women, no matter their background or where they live, deserve the right to make their own personal health decisions. In Illinois we sadly understood that an extremist Supreme Court could try to roll back hard fought reproductive rights that women have depended on for generations. That’s why we worked in recent years to remove dangerous trigger provisions and strengthened protections to ensure that this state would continue to be a safe place for individuals to choose – regardless of what happens to Roe v. Wade. Politicians have no business making personal health care decisions for women, which is why I remain firmly committed to doing everything that I can to reinforce our legal protections here in Illinois.”
