A group of ministers is calling for tougher oversight of facilities in Illinois that provide abortions.

On Thursday, they also remembered Tonya Reaves. Reaves died nearly a year ago after undergoing an abortion at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Chicago.

The ministers want lawmakers in Springfield to pass legislation to ensure the safety of all women. They say that includes making sure women are better informed of the risks of an abortion.
