Signing SB1564 was simply Rauner being Rauner.
The legislative fight against SB1564 was a shining example of how various pro-life groups can mobilize and work together. The grassroots was energized and once again demonstrated what a great resource we have available when pro-lifers are informed and engaged.
We fought nobly to defend life, women and religious liberty. So signing SB1564 reveals that not only is the Governor anti-life, he is not a friend of women and does not respect individuals with deeply held religious convictions. Attacking Pregnancy Resource Centers is particularly ugly. We need to be clear that we are dealing with a Governor willing to pursue such a course of action.
We need to recognize that we must change the make-up of the Illinois General Assembly. We need to garner all our resources and work together in the upcoming elections. We need to set aside any differences we may have and harness the strength of unity in purpose and commitment.
If we fail to do so then we have betrayed the pro-life movement.
