AURORA – State Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, removing the right to choose from millions of women.

"It is unbelievable that 50 years of precedence can disappear overnight due to the decisions of an incredibly conservative Supreme Court, which does not represent a majority of our country. Women who feel they have no other option but to have an abortion will resort to dangerous and deadly procedures that killed thousands of women before Roe v. Wade.

“Here in Illinois, I have fought to codify Roe v. Wade to ensure that women have the right to make fundamental decisions about what to do with their bodies. As long as states have the power to make decisions, Illinois will continue to give women their fundamental right to choose.”
