Lobby Day Live: Off to the Capitol!

The Campaign for Reproductive Health and Access supporters have just descended on the Capitol building! Today is Lobby Day and campaign supporters are lobbying in support of HB6205, the Reproductive Health and Access Act.

Why do we need RHAA in Illinois? We must protect the right of all Illioisans to a continuum of choices throughout their reproductive lives - from honest sexual health education, to access to quality birth control, prenatal care, and the right to choose abortion.

Campaign supporters met here in Springfield for a brief overview of the bill, followed by a group lunch, and then they were off! The crowd was revved up and ready to speak to their legislators about why they support HB6205. You could feel the excitement in the air!

Check back with us again later to hear from some of our supporters who lobbied at the Capitol today.
