Late last week, Illinois Circuit Court Judge Michael McHaney of Clay County ruled in a lawsuit that “all citizens of Illinois” are free from Governor JB Pritzker's tyrannical orders. This comes after arguably unethical tactics by the Illinois Attorney General to delay the case by trying to remove it to federal court, and the United States Department of Justice filing a Statement of Interest in the case in support of Bailey’s lawsuit.

A suit to enjoin the Grundy County State’s Attorney and Sheriff from enforcing Governor JB Pritzker’s worship restrictions has been filed by a local church. The continuing worship restrictions are contained in Pritzker’s Executive Order 2020-32. Pastor Gionvennatti is seeking court protection to ensure that all citizens’ constitutional rights are affirmed without question and that religious liberties are not ever again infringed by egregious government overreach.
On March 9, 2020, Governor JB Pritzker declared every county in Illinois is a disaster area. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act (20 ILCS 3305/7) allows the Governor to proclaim a disaster exists, by which he can give himself authority under the Act to exercise certain emergency powers.
The most noteworthy of the powers he has exercised is the power to control the movement of persons within a disaster area, and the power to control and restrict the use, sale, or distribution of goods and services.
Late last week we sent an email alert about a dangerous Illinois House bill (HB 4870) mandating that ALL 6th grade students in Illinois receive the unnecessary and highly controversial HPV vaccine - both boys and girls. Politicians have no business mandating medical treatment for all children to prevent a disease that's contracted solely through sexual activity. Parents should be outraged! But it gets worse.
Precious and Myles Brady Davis are LGBTQ activists, writers, speakers. Myles is the director of communications at Equality Illinois; Precious works at the Sierra Club but has worked at the Center on Halsted in the past. Now, they are also parents who learned that the Illinois Department of Public Health’s birth certificate system automatically lists the parent who gives birth as “Mother/Co-Parent.”
As you know, IFI is very concerned about the move by certain state lawmakers to legalize “recreational” marijuana in Illinois. In 2014, so-called “medical” marijuana became legal in the Land of Lincoln. Over the past four years, state lawmakers and bureaucrats at the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) have dramatically expanded the qualifying medical conditions. Today, anyone determined to use pot can easily apply for and receive a medical cannabis registry identification card.
According to IDPH’s July Update, there are currently over 39,800 qualified users in the state’s “medical” marijuana registry and there are 55 authorized dispensaries statewide.…

Twelve year old Kristin had a secret she wanted to keep from her parents. They just wouldn’t understand if she told them about what she and a 17 year-old neighbor had been doing before their parents got home from work.
But Kristin remembered her health teacher talking about things to watch out for after fooling around – and she feared she was in trouble.
“I think Ms. Wilson called them ‘genital warts,’ or something gross like that,” Kristin thought after discovering some unusual bumps in her private area. “I wonder if that’s what I’ve got.”
When she got off the …
With the shutting of a Rockford, Illinois, abortuary that hadn’t been inspected in more than a decade, the Illinois Department of Public Health is “quietly” looking into other clinics. So far, one closed shop before it was even inspected.
Dimensions Medical Center, an abortion facility in Des Plaines, was one of seven under the same owner, Vinod Goyal. It abruptly closed for business before the state inspectors even showed up to the facility, which had not been inspected since 2001. Pro-life Action League sought and received information on it through a Freedom of Information Act request following reports of …
