Illinois Raking in Abortion From Other States
Illinois Raking in Abortion From Other States

It has been extremely difficult over the years to get pro-life legislation passed in Illinois – let alone implemented. For example it took 15 years of court battles to get a law enforced to notify parents when their minor daughter seeks an abortion.

Illinois Right to Life Executive Director Mary Kate Knorr told OneNewsNow that it will be even more difficult for pro-life advocates in the near future.

“This past election cycle was absolutely brutal for our pro-life candidates,” Knorr pointed out. “I mean, just outright lies about their stances on things – about what they believe, about what things they’ve said – and this is just generally what we see from Illinois and from the Chicago media across the board.”

The state of Illinois’ media is solidly pro-abortion, and this is what reportedly impacts voters.

One reason for the abortion increase has to do with people from neighboring states with tight abortion restrictions going to Illinois for abortions.

In fact, Knorr asserted that Planned Parenthood is counting on this increase from beyond Illinois borders for their future.

“They plan to leverage states like Illinois that have very loose restrictions to make up for their business that they’re now losing in some of these other states where they’ve increased restrictions or passed laws that ban abortion after a certain stage of pregnancy entirely,” Knorr noted.

In essence, states like Illinois will see future statistics showing an increase of out of state residents in years ahead by people flowing into Illinois for ready access for termination of their unborn children.
