Illinois Democratic Gov. JB Pritzker signed into law Wednesday a bill he said protects women’s rights but that pro-lifers said rolls backs protections for the unborn by declaring abortion a “fundamental right.”
The so-called Reproductive Health Act (S.B. 25) declares the “fetus does not have independent rights” and changes the definition of viability so as to protect fewer unborn babies. It also requires health insurance plans to cover abortion and forces parents to pay for their minor daughter’s abortion — even if they opposed her having one.
The pro-life group Live Action called it a “dark day” and said the law was “worse” than the controversial law passed in New York earlier this year.
The law “legalizes abortions through all nine months of pregnancy, up to the moment of birth, for any reason,” said Illinois Right to Life.
Pritzker said the law puts the decision-making in the “hands of women and their doctors.”
“In a time when too many states across the nation are taking a step backward, Illinois is taking a giant step forward for women’s health,” he said. “… The Reproductive Health Act ensures that women’s rights in Illinois do not hinge on the fate of Roe v.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
