Illinois state lawmakers are scheduled to return to Springfield for the annual Veto Session this month, and we know that abortion cheerleaders continue to push their sinister agenda to make Illinois the most pro-abortion state in the nation.
In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to block the Texas Heartbeat Law, which has been upheld by a previous court, the Illinois Parental Notice of Abortion Act is in their crosshairs. They believe that restricting abortion on innocent pre-born humans once a heartbeat is heard violates their contrived Constitutional rights. In reality, the law protects the most fundamental human right — the right to life! And according to Texas Values, the law is saving around 130 innocent baby’s lives per day!
Democrats seek retaliation against the Texas law as the rationalization for repealing the Illinois Parental Notification of Abortion Act.
We must we speak out. We cannot remain silent as they are determined to remove this commonsense protection for minor girls seeking an abortion in Illinois. The law requires that parents be notified within 48 hours — not give consent — of their minor daughter’s intention to end the life of her child. Leftists are working very hard to repeal this law and usurp parental rights.
Take ACTION: Please click HERE to contact your state lawmakers to let them know that most Illinois parents and grandparents oppose repealing the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. It is vital that our state lawmakers hear from conservatives on this life-and-death policy. We hope and pray that pro-life citizens will respond overwhelmingly to counter the pressure from anti-life advocates and prevent them from getting the 60 votes they need in the Illinois House and the 30 votes they need in the Illinois Senate.
The repeal could likely be brought to a vote during the Fall Veto Session, which is October 19-21 and 26-28.
We must not remain silent in the face of this attack on young pregnant mothers and their pre-born babies. State lawmakers should be made to feel very uncomfortable to vote in favor of repealing a bill that is intended to protect a minor girl from sexual predators and from a life or death decision for her unborn child.
Please, for the sake of our daughters and for the next generation, contact your lawmakers today. And please pass this message along to friends to encourage them to respond as well.
