Illinois Version of Radical, Pro-Abortion Freedom of Choice Act Defeated

The Illinois version of the radical Freedom of Choice Act that Congress may eventually consider has been defeated. Today was the last day for the state House to vote on the bill, known as the Reproductive Health and Access Act, and it failed to do so. House Bill 2354 will not be called for a vote today and, as a result, it will die for the legislative session. Abortion advocates will have to file the bill again next session for it to be considered once more. “All our hard work has paid off,” Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, one of the pro-life groups working to defeat the bill, told “The phone calls, letters, petitions and protests sent a crystal clear message to our state representatives.”
