Don't miss WBEZ’s morning news program Eight Forty-Eight this Monday, March 7, at 9:00am. ACLU of Illinois Executive Director, Colleen Connell, will talk about how the current budget cuts and pending federal and state legislation would impede women’s health services in Illinois. Some restrictions are proposed as fiscal reform; others are more direct attempts to restrict access to reproductive health care. The ACLU has opposed all bills that impose drastic and dangerous restrictions on reproductive health care.

If you are unable to tune in live at 9am, Eight Forty-Eight is rebroadcast in the evening at 9pm, and also is available online at
