Chicago – Attorney General Kwame Raoul issued the following statement in the case of National Institute of Family and Life Advocates et al. v. Kwame Raoul. Raoul’s office filed a proposed agreed order in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois Western Division.
“As filed, this proposed order is agreed to by the parties in this case and in no way affects my ongoing work protecting women’s rights to access the full range of reproductive health services. Furthermore, this proposed order does not alter Illinois’ Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices Act or my office’s preexisting authority under the act, and I remain committed to protecting consumers against all deceptive practices.
“Patients in Illinois can be assured that as states continue to enact draconian restrictions on access to reproductive health care, I will not waver in my efforts to ensure that Illinois remains an oasis of reproductive freedom in the middle of our nation.”
