The Ultrasound Opportunity Act, HB4085, would require an abortion facility to offer a patient the opportunity to view an ultrasound image of her unborn baby before making a final decision on an abortion.
The abortion clinic regulation bill, HB4117, would require abortion facilities to meet the same standards as other surgical centers.
We’ve been encouraging supporters in our home state of Illinois to call their state representatives to encourage them to support these two bills, and now we’re taking that one step further and encouraging pro-lifers to join us in Springfield for the SpeakOut Illinois Lobby Day on Thursday, March 8.
The SpeakOut Illinois committee is organizing two bus trips from the Chicagoland area originating from the following locations:
- Queen of All Saints Basilica
6280 N. Sauganash Ave.
Chicago, IL [Map]
- St. John of the Cross
5005 S. Wolf Road
Western Springs, IL [Map]
Each bus will depart at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 8. Buses will arrive in Springfield by 10:00 a.m. We will spend approximately two hours at the Capitol to meet with our representatives and senators.
When our lobbying time is completed, we will gather for lunch and a briefing from our pro-life lobbyists. Buses will leave Springfield by 2:00 p.m. and should arrive back in the Chicago area by 6:00 p.m.
To register for a seat on either bus, call the Illinois Family Institute at 708-781-9328. The reservation fee is $15, which includes lunch.
Please plan to join us for this important lobbying opportunity.
