As we reported earlier, the Illinois Senate Executive Committee heard testimony on HB 370 yesterday afternoon — legislation to repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. A few hours later, it was sent to the Illinois Senate floor, debated and then passed by a vote of 32-22, with 5 senators not voting.
The bill is now in the Illinois House Executive Committee for consideration. We only have a short time to fill out witness slips in opposition to Senate Amendment 1.

Vitally Important — PRAY! Pray frequently and fervently to Almighty God about this issue. Pray that hearts and minds are convicted of the truth. Pray that opposition to repealing the PNA would grow. Pray that abortion activists fail to get the 60 votes they need in the Illinois House.
Thank you for taking action!
