Illinois House Republicans hold press conference to speak out against Democratic abortion legislation

Illinois House Republicans hold press conference to speak out against Democratic abortion legislation
Several House Republicans spoke out Wednesday in support of a pro-life rally that took place at the state capitol in Springfield to protest two new Democratic abortion bills.

Rep. Terri Bryant (R-Mt. Vernon) (pictured) said at a press conference that under the new Reproductive Healthcare Act, infants don’t have independent rights.

"We support protecting the life of the mother, but we also support the life of the unborn baby as a newborn," Bryant said. "In essence, these bills would allow abortion any time for any reason, paid for with taxpayer dollars."

Bryant said the other piece of legislation they were fighting involved the Parental Notification Act.

"Illinois mandates notification to a parent, grandparent or legal guardian when a minor seeks an abortion," Bryant said. "With that bill, parents wouldn’t be notified with this. These bills create an environment that feels like you’ve fallen through the rabbit hole. I want to be sure parents and grandparents are notified when a medical procedure has been performed."
