On July 28, 2015, Illinois State Senator Kyle McCarter (R-Vandalia) introduced the Religious Freedom Defense Act, SB 2164, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to redefine marriage for all fifty states.

In a press release, Senator McCarter stated:

“Faith traditions that hold to a millennia-old understanding of marriage that is part of the very fabric of their beliefs should not be forced to comply with a decision that undermines that faith, said McCarter. “The intent of this Act is to protect the free exercise of religion’ in Illinois as it is stated in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

TAKE ACTION: Call your state senator’s office and urge him/her to support and co-sponsor SB 2164. Look up your state senator HEREYou can also send them an email by clicking HERE.

No Tax Dollars for Organizations that Offer Abortions
A few days ago, Senator McCarter also introduced SB 2165.  This legislation would prohibits the state government from providing tax dollars from going to an organization that performs abortions or maintains or operates a facility where abortions are performed. The new law would also affect state contracts and grants.

In a press release, Senator McCarter stated:

“The plain fact of the matter is, if we are funding a group that does abortions, we are funding abortion,” said McCarter. “If Planned Parenthood or other entities that perform abortions are receiving taxpayer dollars, those tax dollars free up the other money these groups receive that can be used for abortion. Funding them with taxpayer dollars supports abortion.”
