This week marks the 46th anniversary of the monumental Roe v Wade Supreme Court ruling, which made abortion legal nationwide. To mark the occasion Jill Hopkins spoke with Jennifer Welch, the President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL) about the organization’s 2019 initiatives, and Gov. JB Pritzker’s recent vow to make Illinois the most progressive state in the nation when it comes to reproductive health. PPIL operates 18 health centers in the state, and served more than 68,000 patients last year.
