AFC is deeply disturbed by last night's revelation of the U.S. Supreme Court's draft decision to upend Roe v. Wade, the 49-year-old precedent that protects a woman's right to choose when to start a family. This decision will disproportionately devastate the lives of low-income Black and Latina/o/e/x women. While the right to abortion is protected by Illinois law, AFC stands ready to mobilize with our local and national partners to support racial health equity.
