Abortion is legal in Illinois. In fact, Illinois has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the United States.
In 2019, Illinois enacted the Reproductive Health Act, which removes several restrictions on abortion that were previously in place, such as waiting periods, spousal consent requirements, and criminal penalties for doctors who perform abortions. The law also recognizes reproductive health care, including abortion, as a fundamental right.
Under the Reproductive Health Act, a person may obtain an abortion at any point during their pregnancy, as long as it is deemed necessary to protect the person’s health or life. The law also requires insurance companies to cover abortion as a part of comprehensive reproductive health care coverage.
It is important to note that the legality of abortion varies by jurisdiction, and laws and regulations can change over time. It is important to stay informed about the laws in your specific jurisdiction and consult with a healthcare provider or legal professional if you have any questions or concerns.
