Pro-Life Rally in Springfield

Pro-Life Rally in Springfield on Wednesday, March 20th

When: 9 am to 4 pm

Where: Illinois State Capitol, 401 South 2nd Street, Springfield

What: Opportunity to lobby legislators and rally against extreme pro-abortion bills proposed for Illinois. House bills 2467 and 2495 would greatly expand abortion in Illinois and would remove parental notification laws and other critical protections for underage girls and vulnerable women. If passed, these bills could make Illinois the Abortion Capital of America. These bills would do the following:

  • Allow abortions for any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy
  • Eliminate any restrictions on where abortions may be performed
  • Allow non-physicians, including nurses and physician assistants, to perform abortions, both surgical and medical
  • Undermine and threaten institutional and individual rights of conscience
  • Jeopardize any meaningful regulation of abortion clinics
  • Require private health insurance policies to include coverage for all abortions, with no exemptions, even for churches and other religious organizations.
  • Eliminate any requirement to investigate fetal deaths or maternal deaths resulting from abortion
  • Repeal law prohibiting "kickbacks" for abortion referrals
  • Repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995, which has been responsible for a reduction of more than 55% in abortions among Illinois minors since 2012
