Illinois Abortion Bills NOT called in hearing
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.
These 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
This fight is NOT over, just slightly delayed. They will come up for another hearing. The unborn will need your help on these bills again. Please keep informed on the movement on these bills by checking our website or social media outlets.
