CALL FOR ACTION: HB 2495 and HB2467

CALL TO ACTION: Attack on the Unborn in Illinois with bills HB 2495 and HB 2467

The Illinois abortion bills HB2467 and HB2495 which would have enshrined abortion in Illinois were not called in the Human Services Committee on March 6th.  Instead they were placed in a sub-committee.

Reasons why they were not called are speculative but it should be known the amount of witness slips that were submitted as opponents surely had some influence in the decision not to call the bill.

Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and Personal PAC have joined forces, with Governor JB Pritzker and several lawmakers once again, to eradicate any and all limits on killing babies in Illinois in the form of two bills; HB 2495 and HB 2467.  Both are in the Human Services Committee  These bills need to be stopped!

In fear of Roe v. Wade being overturned, they will do everything in their power to preserve the non-existent moral “right” to slaughter inconvenient and imperfect humans in Illinois. In a press conference on February 12th, they made their intentions clear - their bills will do the following:

- Repeal the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975 including criminal penalties on doctors who commit abortion

- Repeal the Partial Birth Abortion ban, which allows babies to be killed up to the time of birth

- Remove any and all regulations on clinics that commit abortion

- Repeal the Parental Notification Act of 1995

State Representative Emanuel Chris Welch (D-Westchester) is the chief sponsor of the HB 2467, a proposal to repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995. This law only requires notification—not consent. But pro-abortion advocates don’t want anything—not even parents—to hinder a child’s ability to have her baby killed. Liz Higgins, Planned Parenthood Associate Medical Director, stated, “Planned Parenthood and our partners are not going to let this become a country where people can no longer access abortion.” This includes our daughters. The government is once again interfering in familial relationships in order to advance Leftist “values.”

This must be stopped. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU 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.

This abortion extremism must be stopped!

Ask your state legislators to vote against HB 2495 and HB 2467.
