ICE-PAC director attacks language in abortion bill
Illinois Citizens for Ethics-Political Action Committee (ICE-PAC) Executive Director David Avignone believes the authors of Senate Bill 25 wrote the state's controversial new abortion legislation with intentional opaqueness.
“It is clear that the authors of SB25, including but not limited to State Rep. Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), the ACLU, and various abortion doctors, intentionally wrote the bill without providing clear definitions on ‘health’ and ‘viability,’” Avignone said in a statement released after the Illinois Senate Public Health Committee heard testimony on the bill May 30. His use of the term “but not limited to” references language in the bill used to define the characteristics of a patient that doctors would have to consider before performing a third-trimester abortion.
