Statewide: Medical uncertainty in states with abortion bans
Abortion remains legal in Illinois, but in some other states, the procedure is now banned. There are exceptions, such as in Missouri, which allows for "medical emergencies."
But for doctors, there are concerns the law lacks nuance. They could be forced to decide on saving a patient's life while risking their medical license or even jail time.
