ACTION ALERT: HB 2354 Out of Committee

There is unfortunate news in Illinois: yesterday morning the Illinois version of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), House Bill 2354, passed the Illinois House Human Services Committee and is now headed to the floor of the General Assembly.

If you are an Illinois, please contact your representative to oppose HB 2354. If you do not know your State Representative, you may find him or her at http://www.ilga.gov/ at the bottom right under "Legislator Lookup."

This bill would:
  • make abortion a fundamental right;
  • expand public funding for abortion through Medicaid and possibly state health insurance programs;
  • undermine the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act; and
  • mandate comprehensive sex education for all children in public schools.
