Hastings 6 24 22


FRANKFORT – State Senator Michael E. Hastings (D-Frankfort) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, removing millions of women the right to choose:

“I am disheartened that the U.S. Supreme Court decided to attack women’s right to make decisions regarding their own reproductive health care.  In the year 2022, women should have the right to make their decisions regarding their bodies.

“Luckily, Illinois has taken the necessary steps to ensure women in our great state have these undeniable protections.

“My heart breaks for women across the nation that are being stripped of this basic right and I challenge other states to stand up for women and follow Illinois’ lead.”
