Governor J.B. Pritzker signs abortion bill SB 25 taking effect immediately

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed into law this morning (June 12th) a bill that has been called worse than New York’s Reproductive Health Act, signed into law on January 22 of this year. Pritzker said of the new law, “If you believe in standing up for women’s fundamental rights, Illinois is a beacon of hope in the heart of this nation,” and “We proudly proclaim that we trust women.”  Obviously he wasn't speaking of the pre-born women.

The new Illinois RHA does away with things the state’s ban on partial-birth abortion, ends the need for licensing abortion facilities by the state, allows non-physicians to commit abortions, and allows for abortion at any time, for any reason, including for reasons of “health” which may include “physical, emotional, psychological, familial” or any other type of “health” the abortionist will accept. And abortionists have made clear that they believe the very state of being pregnant and not wanting to be is reason enough to commit an abortion.  It repeals the Illinois Abortion Act of 1975 and the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, removing criminal penalties for doctors who perform the procedures and allowing abortions at any point during pregnancy to protect “the health of the patient” and also also requires insurance coverage for elective abortion and expands coverage for contraception.

By creating a “fundamental right” to abortion, the Parental Notice of Abortion Act, requiring the parents of a minor girl to be notified forty-eight hours prior to having an abortion is now threatened and the next step for Democrats to make Illinois the most extreme pro-abortion state in the nation.  This is a dark day for Illinois.
