In May of this year, it was announced through a draft that the US Supreme Court would reverse 50 years of protecting a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions by overturning Roe v Wade. The official decision placed the matter in the hands of individual states which puts the remaining protection in real peril. In States that ban choice, unsafe abortions will occur and women will no longer have access to the scope of health care they did before the SCOTUS decision. Illinois is a state that currently protects choice, but there is a movement to take that away. Sitting State Senator Craig Wilcox sides with that movement and opposes women making their own health care decisions.
Craig Wilcox does not utter a word about the issue on his campaign materials or official website. Instead, he quietly supports the anti-choice movement.
Also occurring in May of this year, Wilcox donated $1000 to McHenry County GoPac whose primary mission is to fully take away choice. They are stridently opposed to women’s rights. To receive their support, politicians must take a pledge to stand against a woman’s right to choose. Wilcox has been endorsed by the group.
Wilcox was also endorsed this fall by Illinois Right to Life Action, which is the group’s political and lobbying committee dedicated to ant-choice candidates.
If State Senator Craig Wilcox and the movement with which he works has their way, women in Illinois will no longer be able to make their own health care decisions and a vital source of general health care will be cut off. Prior to Roe v Wade, women were forced to engage in outlawed and unsafe practices leading to consequences such as sepsis and death.
