Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton told members of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday that states like Illinois need more federal help to fulfill their roles as “islands” for people seeking abortion in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade and shifts by other states to ban or limit abortions.
