CHICAGO – Being in the middle of the nation, Illinois is always fly-over country, a location that draws little national attention. However, a piece in Friday's The Federalist spotlights Illinois and the horrendous changes the radical abortionists in the Illinois General Assembly is now promoting. 

Author Elizabeth Bauer writes about the legislation moving through the General Assembly that will put Illinois on the map as the nation's most bloodthirsty state when it comes to unborn and newly-born babies:

To begin with, it wholly repeals IL 720, the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975. This law has been amended multiple times, including in 2017 (HB 40), but some minimal protections remained, so that current Illinois law permits post-viability abortions but requires that an attending or referring physician determine that it was “necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother,” in which case the doctor was required to document the particular medical indications for the abortion. It also requires that, if the baby would be capable of survival, the doctor use the abortion method “most likely to preserve the life and health of the fetus” and a second physician be available to provide medical care for any child born alive. These provisions would be entirely removed.

The bill also would repeal the Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act and the Abortion Performance Refusal Act, which, as its name suggest, protects the conscience rights of those who refuse to perform abortions. Instead, it categorically states that “Every individual who becomes pregnant has a fundamental right to continue the pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion, and to make autonomous decisions about how to exercise that right.” It also states “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.”

The bill’s definition of abortion makes it clear that abortions are intended to result in the death of the child: “‘Abortion’ means the use of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device to terminate the pregnancy of an individual known to be pregnant with an intention other than to increase the probability of a live birth, to preserve the life or health of the child after live birth, or to remove a dead fetus.”

And to Illinois' shame or lack thereof, Bauer continues … The rest is HERE.

  1. “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
    Born alive abortion is murder and man’s inhumanity to man. The moral relativism that’s fundamental to the abortion lobby agenda makes it easy to justify all manner of evil, doesn’t it. Adolph Hitler used moral relativism to justify murdering babies too. Abortion is murder of an unborn baby and sometimes an already born baby. The definition of murder is the taking of an innocent life, there is not a more innocent life than that of an unborn baby. Their corruption of the word morality might fool some, but those who can think know abortion is immoral and a sin.
    The democrats hate Christian values, because it exposes their immorality. The very reason they don’t want Christian morals taught in schools.

  2. Leave it to the anti-Christian communist Illinois state democrats to force Christians to sin by mandating they murder unborn and sometimes born babies.
    Might be time to move to Wisconsin. At least they don’t have their constitutionally protected religious freedoms stomped on by a dictatorial commiecrat state legislature and governor. Our constitutionally religious right of conscience is ignored by the governor and dictatorial members in the general assembly. When state govt can tell Christians what religious belief they can’t practice, then there is no free exercise of religion. The scum in the general assembly forces Christians to sin by murdering an unborn baby and sometimes born alive baby. The tyrannical democrat-controlled Illinois legislature violates the Illinois constitution by denying Christians their protected right of religious conscience.
    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:
    • by participating by providing tax dollars or voluntarily in them
    • by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them
    • by not disclosing or not hindering
    • by protecting wrong doers
    To a true Biblical Christian, abortion is a sin. When the Christian hating general assembly forces us Christians to unborn baby murder then the Christian hating general assembly violates our constitutionally protected religious freedom. Like I stated earlier, when state govt can tell Christians what biblical religious belief they can’t practice, then there is no free exercise of religion. Stalin, Mussolini, Lenin, Hitler, etc…. all denied religious freedom too.
    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.)

    The state legislature cannot lawfully change the Illinois constitution’s Bill of Rights by way of a state statute. The general assembly cannot lawfully amend the Illinois constitution by state statute. Period, end of story. They go ahead and unlawfully enact null and void laws because it takes years and in excess of million dollars to get their power abuse overturned and not a thing will happen to them. There should be some kind of punitive punishment for those voting in support of constitution violating bills.
    If an abortion just involved a woman’s body, “maybe” liberals would have an argument. But it doesn’t. An abortion involves two human beings, the woman and her unborn baby. And the whole purpose of an abortion is to destroy that unborn baby’s life. Many decades ago now, scientists discovered that a human life begins at the moment of conception, complete with his/her own unique DNA.
    The Declaration of Independence says the Creator God endowed us with Rights, and that the purpose of government is to “secure” the Rights God gave us. Everyone has a right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
    And State governments are to secure our God given Rights, they are to secure our right to life by prosecuting murderers, drunk drivers, and outlawing abortion & euthanasia
    The lying left claims a full term baby is not a person, how can anyone look at a full term baby and make such a claim?
    Only an evil person would….

  3. Years ago when I first started my road-warrior life style (in the 80s) I use to actually be able to sense/experience the difference in the overall morality between the west coast, east coast and the midwest. I would come “home” after working for the week on one of the degenerate coasts and the change in culture underpinnings was readily apparent, I would recharge and be darn glad I was raised a midwestern-boy.
    And then slowly, the change began, accelerating year after year. By 2000 Illinois was clearly a land of degeneracy, decadence, and depravity. It really is stunning. And what is very apparent is it is an Illinois thing. Of late, I often have chosen to drive rather than fly when I head out to D.C. or the Carolinas for work. Hence I stop for gas and a bite to eat as I make my sojourn. Clearly the old midwestern type values still exist in Indiana, Ohio, and even into Pennsylvania, but back here in Illinois the very fabric of the state is steeped in a bile of moral decay. Illinois truly is a modern Sodom and Gomorrah.
    There is one faint hope, the pending fiscal collapse may become so acute that is may, just may, force structural change. I am hopeful that the carrion feeders that are the the public sector will feed on one another to the point that Illinois becomes less of a destination for the degenerate simply because there will be no flesh left on the taxpayer’s carcass for them to pick over.
    Illinois is truly a degenerate, immoral, and despicable state. It deserves a cataclysmic end.
