Oppose HJ0055 Gag Resolution Intended to Prevent Pro-Life Speech

To date, twelve Illinois legislators have co-sponsored a resolutionn numbered HJ0055 intended to gag the Illinois Family Institute from arguing that our society’s current abortion practices are as bad or worse than the Nazi holocaust against the Jews and other “undesirables,”  both in regard to the scope and the inhumanity of our abortion industries.

This resolution is a flimsily transparent attempt to intimidate those of us who oppose abortion from arguing for our point of view in the public square.  The resolution is premised on the argument that speech anyone claims is offensive to them is “hate speech” and ought to be banned from the public discourse.

Such an idea is and ought to be opposed vigorously by anyone intending to preserve our democratic norms.
