CHICAGO (WLS) — Mayor Lori Lightfoot joined Planned Parenthood of Illinois to announce an executive order to protect those seeking reproductive healthcare in Chicago.

Mayor Lightfoot said the executive order prohibits all city departments, including Chicago police and the Chicago Department of Public Health, from cooperating with any investigation or proceeding from other states seeking to either criminally or civilly people seeking reproductive care in Chicago.

“While we cannot stop anti-abortion states from trying to take action in court against providers or patients in Chicago, we can ensure that as a city government, we are never complicit in aiding or abetting those efforts.”
