Illinois Federation for Right to Life Statement on the passage of SB25

The passage of SB25 is a wake-up call for all individuals in the State of Illinois who believe in the sanctity life.  This extreme legislation exposes a level of callus disregard for human life that is pernicious and disturbing.  This is all done under the guise of “reproductive health care”.

We in the pro-life movement are compassionate and provide assistance for women who are confronted with difficult decisions.  Our opponents show no compassion for unborn babies.  No mercy is given to innocent life under this law. During debate the proponents of this legislation steadfastly refused to even acknowledge the existence of the unborn child.

We are grateful for all the pro-life legislators in Springfield.  We thank Rep. Bourne for her valiant efforts on the House Floor during the contentious debate.  We thank all of the Senators that voted against SB25 and especially appreciate Senators Dan McConchie, Sue Rezin and Jil Tracy for their excellent defense of life on the Senate floor.

Now is the time for all pro-life citizens in Illinois to make a heart-felt commitment to work with renewed passion to save innocent life in the State of Illinois.  It is our responsibility to do all that can be done to remove this death sentence for babies in the womb.
