Seven of Illinois' Democrat members of the U.S. House signed on last month to a measure that would destroy the prolife legacy of the late Congressman Henry Hyde (IL). In addition, Illinois' junior U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth helped introduce the EACH Woman Act that would force taxpayer funding of abortions on low income women with Medicaid health coverage.
Pro-abortion Democrat Sean Casten now represents Illinois 6th Congressional District that Hyde represented from 1975 to his retirement in 2007, the same year he passed away. Casten's stinging rebuke of Hyde in his press release boasting the intention of the EACH Woman Act said, "The Hyde Amendment – named after anti-choice ideologue Henry Hyde who formerly represented the 6th District – has, since 1976, blocked the use of federal funding for abortion services."
