One bill would remove many regulations, including a ban on partial-birth abortion; other bill would repeal the state parental-notification law.
Catholic News Agency CHICAGO — Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago has spoken out against a pair of Illinois abortion bills, calling them a radical and disturbing movement away from the common good. In a March 23 letter to the people of his archdiocese, Cupich encouraged Catholics to take a stand against the legislation. One of the bills — introduced as House Bill 2495 and Senate Bill 1942 — “seeks to strip unborn persons of any protection — or even consideration — under the law and declares abortion to be a ‘fundamental right’ and matter of health care,” he warned. …
This is the response by Senator Dick Durbin about the bill S.311. Evidently he does not even recognize a baby outside of the womb as a human being. Just another disagreement, not many more millions murdered. S.311 protects babies born! It is not abortion, it is infanticide! No excuses! If you are willing to protect the LGTBQ community with laws that are already in place that protect them, then why not protect these living babies in the same way? Let Senator Durbin know that you disagree.
March 7, 2019 Mr. Timothy Barr 229 Washington Place Freeport, IL 61032-5171 Dear Mr. Barr:
Thank you for contacting me about the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S. 311). Though we disagree on this issue, I respect your deeply held views. I believe that abortion should be safe and legal, consistent with Roe v. Wade. A decision that personal is best left to a woman, her family, her doctor, and her conscience. Although abortion is an issue that has divided Americans, I believe we can acknowledge a woman’s right to access safe reproductive health care services, while working to reduce the number of abortions. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced by Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, was introduced with the stated purpose of ensuring that infants born alive during a failed abortion were not subsequently killed. …Continue reading “A Letter from an Elected Legislator”
January 22 marks the 46th anniversary of the decisions of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. It is most unfortunate that our justices made the decisions they made, opening the door for more than sixty million babies being killed from abortions in the US alone since that time. But more was at stake than abortion and the lives of babies. The ramifications of what was to follow would devastate America and the whole world.Continue reading “Roe v. Wade Anniversary”
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit issued an order Thursday vacating a 2014 district-court decision against the Eternal Word Television Network in its lawsuit against the so-called contraceptive mandate issued by the Department of Health and Human Services. The order follows a settlement between the network and the Department of Justice reached Oct. 5. Under the terms of the settlement, EWTN will not be required to provide contraception, sterilization or abortifacients through its employee health-care plan. “This moment has been a long time coming,” said EWTN Chairman and…
When we get to the end of our life, we will bow down to one or the other; Satan or Jesus. Satan offers us to do whatever we want, whereas Jesus gave us a way to follow, namely the Ten Commandments and the cross in this life. At the end of our life comes our final judgement. If we do what we want, we will be serving Satan and suffer eternity from him. If we follow Jesus, He will offer infinite love, joy and peace.
This week will begin the month of November. We end October with a secular holiday of Halloween and begin the new month of November with All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation. Halloween started as a pagan feast day that demanded a sacrifice to the pagan gods. The priests of the old Irish pagan religion demanded a sacrifice from the harvest. They would knock on every door demanding the food for sacrificing to the pagan gods. When the person opened the door they would say, “trick or treat,” meaning, get us the food for sacrifice or we will put a curse on you. Not my idea of a great holiday.

(Presented by Stephenson County Right To Life) Speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, God’s precious unborn babies. We are not attempting to create any new laws; we just want the current laws against murder applied to all people, born and unborn.
