Pro-life Illinois legislators introduce bill to ban Down syndrome abortions

Illinois state Rep. Allen Skillicorn
The worse fear of pro-abortionists is that a particular type of pro-life legislation will “catch on.”

Currently Indiana and North Dakota also ban abortions based on genetic anomalies.

On Monday, the Peoria Journal Star reported that Illinois state Reps. Allen Skillicorn of Crystal Lake (pictured) and Thomas Morrison of Palatine have submitted House Bill 4210.

According to Maximilian, Kwiatkowski, HB 4210 “would make it illegal for a doctor to perform an abortion with knowledge the mother is ‘seeking the abortion solely on account of the fetus having a test result indicating Down syndrome, a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome, or any other reason to believe that the fetus has Down syndrome.’”

Skillicorn said the bill’s inspiration came from similar measures, including, most recently, passage in Ohio.
