Bucking neighboring states, Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Wednesday sent a big signal by signing a law to protect Illinois' abortion rights should Roe v. Wade be overturned, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Supporters have said the legislation is essential, worrying that women will not have access to reproductive health care in Illinois should the Supreme Court decision be overturned.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Anti-abortion groups, like the Thomas More Society, said it makes Illinois "an abortion destination for the country."
