Pritzker Calls 15 Week Abortion Ban "Dangerous"

Gov. J.B. Pritzker took to Twitter on April 15 to criticize Florida's new law banning abortion after 15 weeks gestation.

"This is dangerous," Pritzker wrote. "As states across the country continue to restrict access to reproductive healthcare services, Illinois will continue to be a leader in providing access to healthcare for all who need it."

Abortion is not healthcare. It does nothing to improve the health of the mother, and it aims to end the life of a separate human being. By being a "leader" in the abortion industry, Illinois enables abortion businesses to take advantage of disadvantaged women. Women seldom choose abortion because they are sick or injured. They most often choose abortion for career and financial reasons. This is reflected in studies by BMC Women's Health, the Guttmacher Institute, and PubMed Central.

In a follow-up tweet, Pritzker wrote, "We will ensure women everywhere have the resources they need to make the best decision for themselves."

Recent actions by the Illinois legislature, such as the repeal of parental notice, do not empower women with resources to make a decision for themselves. They push women toward choosing abortion.
