Now is the time to educate your representative, on the dangers of the Freedom Of Choice Act (FOCA) and urge them to vote “NO” on HB 2354. If Illinois should pass this bill, abortion would be enshrined as a right in Illinois… FOCA states every woman has “a fundamental right” to have an abortion, and no Illinois government may deny or “interfere with” this right. Moreover, no government agency may “discriminate against the exercise of this right when regulating or providing “benefits, facilities, services, or information” to the public. In other words abortion may not be treated differently from live birth — if a public program supports motherhood it must equally support abortion. FOCA endangers a wide range of laws enacted by the people and their elected Representatives over 35 years.
