Stand for Life – Sign the Petition
The 100th General Assembly of the State of Illinois just began January 11th and already, radical liberals are pushing their pro-abortion agenda. Their agenda centers around a piece of legislation, House Bill 40, which aims to do two things:
- Expands Medicaid and the State Employee Insurance Act to cover all abortions for those enrolled into the programs. This ensures taxpayer dollars are spent to perform abortions.
- In response to the election of Donald Trump as President and his intention to appoint conservative Supreme Court justices, the bill would abolish Illinois’ so-called “trigger law,” that states that, if Roe v. Wade is overturned, abortion would become illegal in Illinois.
The budget crisis is at the top of everyone’s mind as legislators get to work in Springfield – as it should be. While the tough work of crafting a balanced budget is ongoing, I won’t allow the work of pro-abortion activists to slip by without a fight.
I believe that life begins at conception. I believe that we are all made by a God who knows us and loves us. I believe my values are Southern Illinois values. Together we can make our voice heard on this issue at the core of who we are as a state and a nation. Will you join me as we Stand for Life?
