Legislators are calling for a repeal of the recently approved Reproductive Health Act and for new definitions of the viability of unborn children.
State Representatives Allen Skillicorn (R-Crystal Lake), Bard Halbrook (R-Shelbyville), Amy Grant (R-Wheaton), and Chris Miller (R-Oakland) are calling for the repeal.
House Bill 3850 was filed. It would create the Illinois Abortion Law of 2019 containing provisions of the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975.
The bill includes provisions defining, “viability to include when in the medical judgement of the attending physician based on the particular facts of the case before the attending physician, the unborn child has a fetal heartbeat, and defining fetal heartbeat as the cardiac activity or the steady and repetitive rhythmic contraction of the fetal heart within the gestational sac.”
* The bill is going absolutely nowhere, but Personal PAC is already fundraising off of it…
For the last 46 years, the anti-choice movement has been working tirelessly to overturn Roe one step at a time. Today, a group of State Representatives took the first step toward repealing the RHA and dismantling access to safe and legal abortion in Illinois.
The right-wingers will never give up their crusade to make birth control and abortion illegal. The only way to defend against their relentless attacks in Illinois is by electing pro-choice officials to state and local office. Help us make sure we are prepared to fight back by joining our 2019 Annual Awards Luncheon’s Benefit Committee today. The fate of the RHA rests with us in 2019!
Always in choice (no exceptions, ever!)
