Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a bill into law on Friday that legally protects out-of-state abortion seekers, as well as abortionists and doctors who perform sex-mutilating surgeries, CBS Chicago reported.
“In addition to shielding reproductive and gender-affirming health care patients and providers from legal action originating across state lines, the act will also protect the Illinois licenses of health care providers licensed in multiple states who provide treatment legal in Illinois but may cost them their license in a state where it’s not,” according to the report. “The measure also prevents insurers from charging more for out-of-network care when in-network providers object to treatment on moral grounds.”
During the signing, Pritzker claimed that a “medical decision should be made between a patient and their health care provider.”
“Here in Illinois, we know that reproductive care is health care,” he said.
The bill’s sponsor, Democrat state Sen. Celina Villanueva, said the legislation “consolidates Illinois as an island that protects reproductive and gender affirming rights in the Midwest.”
Planned Parenthood of Illinois said it has seen people from 33 different states since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June of 2022, “compared with ten to 15 before the ruling,” the report states. Planned Parenthood spokesperson Mary Jane Maharry states that approximately 30 percent of its patients are from outside of the state, compared to 6 percent before the Dobbs decision.

Their state law isnt going to protect abortionists in other states that have different laws. Not how it works, Illinois.
I wish this Chicago lowlife tick would explode. He’s a sick piggy. He thinks he’s Robert DeNiro. A real sicko.

No, this one calls himself a male but who knows,he’s so fat he hasn’t seen his d!ck this century.
The headline should read: Illinois Governor Signs Up for New Hotter Spot in Hell.
They’ll be able to keep their Illinois licenses, that’s what he’s saying.

IMHO the entire Pritzker family is a little strange.
