Illinois Law forces referrals, encouragement for abortion

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner has signed into law a bill (SB1564) forcing pro-life people to violate their faith and conscience.

It requires all healthcare professionals to refer for abortions and discuss the benefits of abortion - regardless of what their personal feelings about abortion may be or the dictates of their conscience that they would never in a million years recommend or suggest an abortion to anyone
