Illinois Pro-Lifers Answer the Call
By Jenna Smith   |   03.23.19
As the oldest teenage daughter of Illinois Family Institute’s executive director, I have had the privilege of visiting Springfield for a great number of events. But this past Wednesday was perhaps the most important event I’ve volunteered for as I witnessed over four thousand pro-life Illinoisans converge on our state capitol to oppose two extreme abortion bills currently pending in the General Assembly.
The Anti-Natalist Fallacy
Back in college, I participated in one of those summer-long, Koch-funded libertarian internship programs. During the final week of the program, clusters of us interns, fresh off working in the "real world" for two total months, were tasked with arguing an esoteric philosophical point of our choosing.

We need your help to encourage our state lawmakers to reject two extreme abortion bills. No American should be forced by its government to violate their deeply held convictions. That is why pro-life organizations from across the state are calling for a Rally & Lobby Day on March 20th at our state Capitol in Springfield.
Illinois could soon become our nation’s number one death camp for babies. Will you remain silent? Or will you speak out against two extreme pro-abortion bills?...
Shocking Information About Illinois Medicaid and Pregnant Women
By Laurie Higgins   |   03.03.19
Maybe everyone knew this but me. If not, you better be sitting down for this one. Though not required by law, Illinois provides a program of benefits called Medicaid Presumptive Eligibility(MPE). MPE “offers immediate, temporary coverage for outpatient healthcare for...
Responding to the Pro-Choice Movement
By Dr. Joey Krol   |   03.02.19
In the past several weeks, we’ve seen a hard progressive push toward more radical legalizations to abortion.  The state of New York recently passed a law that would permit abortions up to the moments of birth.  There have been discussions...
Democrats Refuse to Make Infanticide Illegal
By Jenna Smith   |   02.28.19
On February 25, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) called the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act for a vote on the U.S. Senate Floor. The bill simply states: “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant...
Liberals to Make Illinois a Slaughterhouse Extraordinaire
By Laurie Higgins   |   02.25.19
To fulfill Governor J.B. Pritzker’s dream to make Illinois a slaughterhouse extraordinaire and the abortion mecca of the Midwest, that ever-reliable instigator of moral mayhem, State Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), has sponsored a bill that would put a twinkle in...
Now More Than Ever
By Timothy J. Dailey   |   02.22.19
It wasn’t so long ago that such a thing would be unthinkable: a standing ovation for abortion in the New York State Senate chamber with the passage of legislation permitting abortion for any reason up until the moment of birth. ...

Please join IFI, Illinois Right to Life, Lake County Right to Life, Illinois Conservative Union, Pro-Life Action League, ICE-PAC and dozens of other church groups and pro-life warriors in Springfield to lobby against radical anti-life legislation. Abortion activists will stop at nothing to achieve their body-and soul-destroying goals. If we fail to do everything in our power to block the passage of these bills, we become complicit in the destruction of countless more innocent lives.

More Abortion Extremism for Illinois
By Kathy Valente   |   02.13.19
Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and Personal PAC have joined forces, once again, to eradicate any and all limits on killing babies in Illinois, absurdly claiming that Illinois’ parental notice law is “dangerous” and “unnecessary." The push comes from Governor JB Pritzker’s office and has materialized in the form of two bills. The language has not yet been submitted, but the intention is clear: Leftists want to make baby-killing even easier.
Better Off Dead
By Stacy McDonald   |   02.08.19
I was born in the 60’s with spina bifida to a 16-year-old unwed mother before it was legal to kill unplanned, unwanted, and/or damaged children. I was all three. But “killed” isn’t a nice word, so, maybe I should modify my terminology like a recent couple who claims to have aborted their 22-week-old daughter with spina bifida, out of a “desire to free [her] from a life of likely suffering.” They claim to have made the decision “entirely for her.”
Trump Walks a Tightrope
By Timothy J. Dailey   |   02.06.19
As President Trump gazed out over his audience in the U.S. House of Representatives chamber of the United States Capitol, he could not fail to notice a prominent block of female Democratic lawmakers seated front and center and dressed in white to symbolize their growing power in the halls of government.  Their presence was a painful reminder to the President that in the 2018 Congressional races female voters preferred Democratic candidates by 19 points, sending a record 106 women to Congress.
