Reproductive Rights

The ACLU’s Reproductive Rights Project seeks, through litigation, public education and legislative advocacy, to make certain that all in our society have access to safe and effective contraception, sexuality education and information, reproductive technologies, prenatal care, childbearing assistance and safe, legal, and accessible abortion. We strive to ensure that women have the right to decide whether and when to bear a child and the resources to effectuate their decisions. We believe that these decisions should be made without government interference and that all people must have equal access to the information and resources necessary to make informed, independent choices about their reproductive lives. Because of our work, Illinois has become a destination for people throughout the country seeking quality reproductive healthcare and information without harmful government restrictions.
