AURORA, Ill. – State Rep. Stephanie Kifowit, D-Oswego, issued the following statement after learning of reports that Roe v. Wade is set to be overturned by the Supreme Court:
“The threat of our U.S. Supreme Court to overturn of Roe v. Wade comes as no surprise, and the recent reports of a politically motivated U.S. Supreme Court threatens not only all aspects of women’s health but many other protections found under our Constitution. Simply put, if what has been released becomes the final opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court, it will cause irreparable harm to many individuals, especially women, across our country. I believe that women are responsible to make choices about their own bodies and their own reproductive healthcare with a doctor. I am glad to live in the State of Illinois that respects women’s right to choose what is the best healthcare choices for their unique circumstances, and have supported legislative action that will continue in Illinois to ensure women have that right to full reproductive healthcare services.”
