More people could travel to Illinois for abortion care
But here in Illinois, where the right to an abortion is recognized by the state supreme court, clinics would see an uptick in patients traveling from out of state. We talked about this potential increase in patients making the long trip to Illinois with a lawyer and professor, the executive director of an Illinois reproductive health clinic, and the executive director of the Midwest Access Coalition.
