CHICAGO – Chicago businessman J.B. Pritzker is not avoiding a discussion about social issues in his campaign for governor. Unlike Republican Bruce Rauner during his 2014 bid, Democrat Pritzker is leading with a charge to "stand up" for mothers' rights to end the lives of their unborn babies.
"HB 40 will be the first law I sign in office," Pritzker says in a new ad released Thursday.
Governor Rauner said in April he would veto a bill that would push Illinois deeper into embracing abortion by using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions for those expectant mothers covered by Medicaid health insurance or state employee plans.
Now he's not saying anything about what he plans to do when HB 40 comes to his desk.
Still, the situation leaves social conservatives in Illinois in a dilemma for 2018 – voting for an incumbent that hides from social issues or a Democrat that boldly attacks traditional, religious positions on public policy issues.
The new ad:
Just so I understand it is OK for a woman to kill an unborn fetus but we want to charge someone who kills a mother with an unborn fetus with TWO counts of MURDER!
isn’t murder still murder?
It strikes me as very inconsistent. Are these the same people want to eliminate capital punishment because it is cruel and unusual punishment and it is immoral to take a life?
can’t have it both ways!
Hey dictator J.B. Pritzker, why do I have finance the killing of an unborn baby? The persons who made that baby are responsible to pay for it to be murdered. The definition of murder is: the taking of an innocent life.
There is a not a more innocent life than that of an unborn baby’s. We taxpayers who have morals and value human life have a right not to be an accomplice to the murder of unborn babies and you can’t make us.
In point of FACT HB 40 violates the state constitution and our constitutionally protected religious freedoms:
From the Illinois Constitution’s Bill of Rights: Article 1, Section 3. Religious Freedom
“The free exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination, shall forever be guaranteed, and no person shall be denied any civil or political right, privilege or capacity, on account of his religious opinions; but the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not be construed to dispense with oaths or affirmations, excuse acts of licentiousness, or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the State. No person shall be required to attend or support any ministry or place of worship against his consent, nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship.” (Source: Illinois Constitution)
Part of the free exercise of religion is right of conscience. Pritzker will try to force Christians to sin in direct violation of the Illinois constitution’s Religious Freedom clause. True Christians will be coerced by Pritzker to violate their religious conscience. Pritzker craps on our Bill of Rights in the Illinois Constitution. No Christian can rewrite the Bible or ignore parts to please an dictatorial state government. To be a true Christian one must have faithful obedience to God’s word.
The Bible says, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4:17)
While sin is a personal act, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them, like funding baby murdering with our tax dollars.
To a true Christian abortion is a sin. You cannot separate freedom of worship, right of conscience, and freedom of speech without denying Christians the free exercise of religion. That should be apparent to the state legislator and the governor and even you Pritzker the Christian persecutor. Hey billionaire Prictzker, why don’t you subsidize the genocide you are filthy rich, don’t force an unmoral act on us?
Pritzker as governor you do not have the constitutionally granted authority to violate our religious freedoms and force we Christians to sin by forcing us to fund the murder of babies. Pritzker, READ AND LEARN THE STATE CONSTITUTION, ESPECIALLY Article 1, Section 3. Religious Freedom, WE AREN’T YOUR SUBJECTS AND YOU AREN’T OUR KING.
Democrat Pritzker is leading with a charge to “stand up” for mothers’ rights to end the lives of their unborn babies.
Are you a mother if you murder your unborn baby?
And everyone knows the fetus feels pain at 20 weeks…. certainly no one can say a late term abortion is not cruel and unusual punishment. How would you like to have your brain sucks out of your skull and your head collapsed.
The world gasped when it found out what Dr Josef Mengele had been doing in his twin studies during Nazi Germany’s reign of terror. He removed the skull caps of twins to experiment in an attempt to map the brain. He starved babies to death to see how long it would take. Personally I see little difference between Mengele’s crimes against man and abortionists of today…. it amazing what people can rationalize doing.
Seeing Pritzkers size,
I am surprised he can “stand up” at all.
Quite a sensitive topic
