Illinois' regressive Reproductive Health Act eviscerates human rights

Progressives now on “the wrong side of history.” “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.”–Illinois’ newly enacted Reproductive Health Act. Never, to my knowledge has a state passed a law denying a person any and all rights. America’s history is marked by a steady expansion of... Read more »

Illinois poised to become America's most radical pro-abortion state

UPDATE: Illinois House passes the extreme abortion bill described below. EARLIER VERSION: The Illinois Legislature is moving toward passage of a bill that would surpass the extreme and controversial pro-choice laws in states like New York and Virginia. While pro-choice propagandists are focusing on states that are passing more restrictive abortion requirements, New York, Virginia and... Read more »

2 Illinois abortion bills are wildly extreme

It takes guts, I’ll say that for sponsors of two bills in the Illinois Legislature that go so far beyond what the public wants that they’re beyond extreme. As this fine op-ed in today’s Chicago Tribune notes: According to a Gallup poll released in June 2018, only 28 percent of people support abortion in the... Read more »

Illinois liberals hope to gut Roe v. Wade

It is a betrayal of everything that liberals have stood for. Liberals themselves will be astonished to read this, but they only need to read Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court case that legalized abortion, to  understand why the “Reproductive Health Act” (Introduced as HB2495 in the Illinois Legislature) would fatally wound the decision’s protections of the...

Illinois Democrats introduce unpopular abortion expansion bill

Illinois Democrats will argue that their legislation to “expand” abortion “rights” merely reflects the popular sentiment to “protect women’s health.” But the radical pair of newly introduced bills is popular only with hard-line advocates who favor an abortion not just up to the moment of birth, but also as late as when the baby has entered...

Some Dems: Protect kids at border, but not newborns

You might say the inverse about some Republicans: Protect newborns but not kids at the border. I thought of that when watching President Trump’s state of the union speech last night. He announced that he would ask “Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s... Read more »

Was racism or infanticide Gov. Northam's greatest sin?

Trick question. They both are grievous sins, but of a different kind. Racism wrongs millions of people. Infanticide just one, but ends the person’s life. Racism appears millions of times a day inflicting pain and even death. Infanticide is rare, but is certainly deadly. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is accused of racism for having a photo of a man in...

For all their dodging and weaving, Democrats revealed as the Party of Death

At least one pro-choice advocate, Virginia state Del. Kathy Tran was honest enough to admit that her proposed legislation would allow an abortion up to the moment of birth. Despite all the denials coming from pro-choice radicals and Democrats including Tran who tried to deny her meaning, here is a summary of what she said: House... Read more »

Pro-choice lie about the New York law that allows late-term abortions

Pro-choice champions are trying to persuade pro-life advocates that the new New York state Reproductive Health Act does not permit abortions for any reason at any time up to the moment of birth. For example, Heavy.com flatly denies that in an article:  No, the New York Abortion Law Does Not Allow ‘Any’ Late-Term Abortion: Read the Law Here As you... Read more »

A daffy abortionist asks the impossible: a fetus must seek permission to invade a woman's body

The orthodox media and the far left typically hang the labels of cruel, merciless and extremist tag on pro-lifers. But it would be hard to outdo abortionist Leah Torres when it comes to inhumanity, barbarity and depravity. As she said when she got into a Twitter mouth-fight with a pro-lifer, Jeryl Bier, who contributes to the... Read more »
