Religious-freedom

Not having a social issues agenda means vetoing a bill that would both redefine the meaning of religious freedom and expand the business of abortion.” – Jon Schweppe

WASHINGTON DC – American Principles Project is calling on Governor Bruce Rauner (R-Illinois) to veto SB 1564, a bill that would fundamentally redefine religious freedom and force pro-life medical professionals to materially cooperate in providing abortion services.

Jon Schweppe, an Illinois native and communications director at American Principles Project, wrote in a piece at The Pulse 2016 that Rauner should veto SB 1564 to keep his campaign promise to have "no social issues agenda."

Not having a social issues agenda means keeping the laws the same,” Schweppe wrote. “Not having a social issues agenda means protecting the rights and protections that Illinoisans with sincerely held religious beliefs hold dear. Not having a social issues agenda means vetoing a bill that would both redefine the meaning of religious freedom and expand the business of abortion.”

Schweppe continued, “The Democrats in Springfield, who are attempting to redefine the very definition of religious freedom in order to expand the business of abortion, are the ones guilty of pushing a social issues agenda.

“It’s a garbage bill, Governor. Please do the right thing and send it to the recycling bin. Pro-life and pro-religious freedom Illinoisans won’t forget it.”

Schweppe's entire piece can be read at The Pulse 2016 here.
