In Illinois, Republican Governor Bruce Rauner (R-IL) is actually considering signing a bill that would force the citizens of his state to pay for the abortions that take place there.
Not only that but the bill would force that funding at every point in the pregnancy from day 1 to the day the baby is due!
Illinois House Bill 40 would force taxpayers to fund abortions for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy, and keep abortion on demand legal in Illinois the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned. It passed the state Senate in May and the House in April.
The Illinois State Assembly synopsis of the bill says it would remove language from state law and policy “that the unborn child is a human being from the time of conception and is, therefore, a legal person for purposes of the unborn child’s right to life.”
It’s an unconscionable move by the heavily Democrat Illinois legislature, and it solidifies Illinois as a state that seems wholly enamored with death. Illinois continues to find ways to kill more people, whether on Chicago’s mean streets or in the clinics that are supposed to be caring for our most vulnerable… Illinois is a sad example of the depths to which humanity can sink.
While Illinois is trying to find more ways to kill more people, the state of Ohio just became the 3rd state to ban abortions of babies with Down Syndrome.
A CBS News report earlier this year shocked the nation by reporting that Iceland has an almost 100-percent abortion rate for unborn babies with the genetic disorder.
The Ohio legislation would help protect unborn babies from this modern eugenic trend. Bills in the state House and Senate would prohibit abortions based solely on the genetic condition, and punish abortionists who are caught violating the law. Penalties could include fourth-degree felony charges, revocation of their medical license and liability for legal damages.
The eugenic push already prompted two other states to pass bills banning these discriminatory abortions. In 2016, Indiana became the second state to pass a law banning abortions based on a genetic disorder, race or sex. North Dakota was the first in 2013.
The world has become a very dangerous place for children with Down syndrome. Instead of searching for ways to improve the lives of folks with Down syndrome the medical community has decided to just try to kill them all. Sadly, they’re succeeding. Down syndrome is disappearing, not because we’ve cured trisomy 21 but because through abortion we are murdering everyone with Down syndrome before they are born.
Ohio is to be praised for standing up and defending the lives of our most innocent and defenseless people.
