Dear CHA Family:
Sadly, yesterday, an extremely pro-abortion bill (SB 25) passed the Illinois State House of Representatives. Today (Wednesday) this bill will likely be debated and voted on by the Illinois State Senate. If it passes, it will most certainly be signed into law by the Governor.
SB 25 will provide virtually unlimited and unfettered access to abortion across Illinois. Former Illinois Representative and Thomas More Society Vice President and Senior Counsel, Peter Breen stated: “This bill remains the most radically pro-abortion measure of its kind and would make Illinois an abortion destination for the country.”
What can you do?
- Be informed and inform others.
- Pray that the light of the Gospel of truth will overcome the darkness and hardness of men’s hearts.
- Contact your Illinois State Senator in Springfield this morning urging them to vote against this legislation (SB 25).
We must not be deceived in thinking this is a political or even reproductive issue. This is a moral and spiritual issue. In addition to what this means for the unborn (which is reason enough to oppose), it will have sobering implications for every tax payer in the state and ultimately for organizations/schools like ours in ways yet to be fully understood.
Please take a moment now and pray that our Lord will powerfully intercede in this life and death matter of utmost concern to all who understand that all human life is created in the image of God and is therefore sacred.
Sincerely in Christ,
Dr. Hutz H. Hertzberg
