March for Life

Today, thousands have gathered in Washington D.C. for the annual #MarchforLife to be a voice for those who can't speak for themselves. But back here in Illinois, legislation (HB40) has been filed to remove basic health standards that protect pregnant women, prevent women from being provided basic information, and remove all rights from unborn children. How can any of that be seen as good for women and families?

However, those who have traveled to Washington and those of us who couldn't travel, still believe pregnant women and unborn children who can't speak for themselves should be protected. That's why I've filed House Bill 282, to ensure pregnant women are protected from unsafe conditions, to provide basic information, and to prevent abortion from being used as discrimination of unborn children solely because of their race, color, sex, disability, national origin, or ancestry.

If Illinois can't provide basic protections for women and those who can't speak for themselves, than we have much bigger problems than our finances.

To join me in making sure members of the General Assembly hear your concerns, go to: http://my.ilga.gov/, make a profile and fill out a witness slip for these bills with your concerns.
