The Illinois House closed its spring session this weekend without voting on SB 1564, which would have stripped pro-life doctors of their conscience rights, forcing them to make abortion referrals.
That means the ACLU and Planned Parenthood didn’t have the votes. In other words, our work paid off!
This comes on the heels of defeating HB 4013, the taxpayer funding of abortion bill. That’s two pro-abortion bills defeated this session thanks to countless phone calls to Springfield made by Illinois voters at the urging of the Pro-Life Action League and other Illinois pro-life groups.
A slim chance remains that these two pro-abortion bills could be brought up again during the summer or fall. Watch this space and we’ll sound the alarm when it’s time to take action to stop them.
