Bills regarding the sanctity of life are headed to committee!
Please fill out a witness slip on the following bills which are scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, February 8th, in the Illinois House Human Services Committee. It’s critical that we have more slips from pro-lifers because the other side is working hard on these bills. When Committee Chairperson Robyn Gabel (D-Chicago) tells the committee members that thousands have filled out slips, this will send a strong message that pro-life voters are ready to fight for those who cannot speak for themselves.
These are the bills we need you to take action on:
OPPOSE HB 40 is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago) – reinstates taxpayer-funded abortions for Medicaid recipients and adds abortion coverage in state employees’ insurance plans.
SUPPORT HB 282 is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) – prohibits abortions based solely on race, color, national origin, ancestry, sex, or diagnosis of Down Syndrome or other disability.
SUPPORT HB 283 is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Barbara Wheeler (R-Crystal Lake) – Creates the Ultrasound Opportunity Act by requiring an ultrasound be offered to anyone considering an abortion.
SUPPORT HB 467 is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Sheri Jesiel (R-Antioch) – Provides for the licensure of facilities that commit 50 or more abortions a year; requires certain standards; requires the Dept. of Public Health to annually conduct at least one unannounced inspection per year; provides patients be notified if a violation could threaten a patients’ health.
SUPPORT HB 532 is sponsored by Illinois Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard) – Amends the Illinois Anatomical Gift Act by banning the sale of fetal tissue from abortions.
