5 Pro-Life Bills Introduced in IL House Human Services Committee

Along with the dangerous HB1797, which would repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act, five pro-life bills are currently sitting in the Illinois House of Representatives Human Services Committee. 

HB 683

The Ultrasound Opportunity Act (HB 683), sponsored by Paul Jacobs (R-Carbondale), would require abortionists to give women seeking abortions the opportunity to view a live ultrasound of their unborn babies beforehand.

HB 338

The Born Alive Infant Protection Act (HB 338), is sponsored by Mark Batinick (R-Plainfield). It declares that a child born alive as the result of a failed abortion attempt be fully recognized as a human person and accorded immediate protection under the law.

HB 783

HB 783, sponsored by Patrick Windhorst (R-Harrisburg), would repeal legislation requiring taxpayer funding of abortion.

HB 791

HB 791, also sponsored by Patrick Windhorst, would amend the 2019 Reproductive Health Act to prohibit abortion after 20 weeks except in the case of a medical emergency.

HB 827

The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act (HB 827), sponsored by Adam Niemerg (R-Teutopolis) would hold abortionists criminally guilty of a Class 4 felony if they complete a partial-birth abortion that isn't medically necessary. It would also allow grandparents to sue abortionists for completing a partial-birth abortion on their daughter if she is a minor, and the grandparents did not consent to the abortion. Pregnant mothers would never be held criminally responsible for partial-birth abortions under this act.
