ACA Supporters Rally Outside Sen. Duckworth's Office
Supporters of the Affordable Care Act rallied outside Senator Tammy Duckworth's office in Springfield Friday.
"Everyone needs healthcare," Brigid Leahy, the director of public policy, Planned Parenthood of Illinois, said. "It's basic. It doesn't matter if you're young or your old, you're a man, you're a woman, it doesn't matter if you're a Republican or a Democrat."
The group said it just wants its lawmakers to know that the Affordable Care Act is important to them, and to do everything they can to protect it. The group delivered petitions with 19,000 signatures to keep the law.
