Illinois governor signs abortion rights law

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Illinois Governor J.B.

Pritzker signed an abortion rights bill into law on Wednesday establishing the "fundamental right" for women to have an abortion.

With the signing of the bill, Illinois becomes the most progressive state in the U.S. for women's reproductive rights.

"In a time when too many states across the nation are taking a step backward, Illinois is taking a giant step forward for women's health," said Pritzker.

The legislation comes at a time when several states have passed anti-abortion laws this year.
