Full Bill Text

SB 1777 would prohibit the state and any of its subdivisions from authorizing the use of, appropriating, or expending funds to pay for an abortion or to cover any part of the costs of a health plan that includes coverage of abortion or to provide or refer for an abortion, except when the pregnant person’s life is in danger.

The exception would only apply when a pregnant person suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would place them in danger of death if an abortion is not performed.

The bill would amend the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971 and the Illinois Public Aid Code to exclude coverage for elective abortions.

Problem Pregnancy Health Services and Care Act

The bill would permit the department to make grants to nonprofit agencies and organizations which do not use such grants to refer or counsel for, or perform, abortions.
