HB 40 is heating up — it could be called for a vote any day! If passed, the bill will allow for public funding of abortions, coverage for abortions in state health plans, funding of organizations that perform abortions (like Planned Parenthood), among other things. We must make our voices heard!
There is an urgent need to meet with legislators in Springfield to personally ask them to “Vote NO” on HB 40. The Catholic Conference of Illinois will provide a training session prior to meeting with our legislatures. Please join us and others from throughout the Diocese of Rockford on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.
Your help is needed! Departure locations to Springfield and times will be determined based on participation. Please register early so that we can arrange transportation for everyone who would like to attend. Visit www.rockforddiocese.org/LIFE for more details and to sign up online. Questions? Contact the Life & Family Evangelization Office at LIFE@rockforddiocese.org or (815) 399-4300.
