Villivalam 6 24 22


CHICAGO – In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, State Senator Ram Villivalam (D-Chicago) released the following statement:

“This attack on Roe v. Wade is appalling. While we’ve expanded protections for reproductive health care in our state, an infinite number of communities across the country will be negatively affected by this decision.

“Abortions are not going to stop because of this ruling – women in other states will be forced to go to unimaginable, unsafe means to access this type of care. I pledge to continue to fight and expand access for those who that want access to a safe and legal abortion and ensure we keep it that way in Illinois.”
