Legislative leaders and Gov. JB Pritzker are planning a special session in the coming months to shore up Illinois’ abortion laws after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade at the end of June. With Illinois law already protecting access to abortion, the session is expected to focus on building up the state’s ability to handle an influx of abortion cases from nearby states where the practice has been limited.
