Gov. J.B. Pritzker this week signed a bill to make what he and activists say is the most progressive abortion-rights law in the country. But could Democrats risk a backlash by going too far? And what are they targeting next?

Sean Crawford hosts with regular panelists Charlie Wheeler, and Brian Mackey. This week's guests are Maureen McKinney of NPR Illinois and Illinois Issues, and Dana Vollmer, who is wrapping up a six-month internship in our Statehouse Bureau through the graduate-level Public Affairs Reporting program at the University of Illinois Springfield.
