Short description: 
FREEDOM OF CHOICE-PREGNCY TERM                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the  Freedom  of  Choice  Act  and  amends  the  Illinois      
   Abortion  Law  of  1975.   Establishes  a  State  policy recognizing a      
   woman's reproductive rights.  Prohibits State agencies  and  units  of      
   local  government  (including  home  rule  units)  from  restricting a      
   woman's right to terminate a pregnancy before fetal  viability  or  at      
   any time if medically necessary.  Repeals a Section declaring that the      
   General Assembly would prohibit all abortions unless necessary for the      
   preservation  of  a  woman's  life  if  Roe  v.  Wade  is overruled or      
   significantly modified.  Effective immediately.                             
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB 319 does preempt home rule authority.                             
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          There may be a change in judicial workloads; impact on the           
          need for the number of judges cannot be determined.                  
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Public Health)                                 
          There will be no fiscal impact on this Dept.                         
          FISCAL NOTE (Dept. of Public Aid)                                    
          HB 319 will have a minimal fiscal impact.
