Time is Short: Governor Rauner Needs to Hear From You About Two Terrible Bills
 
Time is Short: Governor Rauner Needs to Hear From You About Two Terrible Bills
Written By David E. Smith   |   07.28.17

We recently alerted you to two pending pieces of legislation that Governor Bruce Rauner will soon have to grapple with. If you have not yet responded to this call-to-action, or even if you have, it is imperative that his office hears from us emphatically and frequently.

1.)  This is our top priority during the summer: HB 1785 must be vetoed!  This careless legislation would allow gender-dysphoric persons to falsify their birth certificates, which are both legal and historical documents. This will have consequences with regard to the relentless cultural assault on physical privacy through the sexual integration of previously sex-segregated spaces.

Governor Rauner must act to veto this nonsense
by August 28, 2017 or it will automatically become law
.

2.)  The other item of great concern remains to be HB 40, a bill that would remove all restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortion. A procedural motion has delayed it from being sent to the Governor’s desk, but he needs to continue to hear from pro-life and responsible taxpayers.

Take ACTION:  Click Here to send an email or a fax to Governor Rauner’s office to urge him to veto both HB 1785 and HB 40.  Ask him to reject transgender birth certificates and taxpayer funding for abortion.

ALSO: please call the public comment lines in the Governor’s office in Springfield: (217) 782-0244 and Chicago (312) 814-2121.

No to taxpayer funding of abortion!
No to fraudulent birth certificates!
