Illinois State Capitol Building
Please join dozens of church groups and pro-life warriors in Springfield to lobby against the following pending anti-life bills.
* HB 2495 , wrongly named the Reproductive Health Act, sponsored by State Representative Kelly Cassidy (D-Chicago), will repeal the 1975 Illinois Abortion law; will repeal the Partial Birth Abortion Ban; and will remove any and all regulations for clinics that commit abortions.
* HB 2467 , sponsored by State Representative Chris Emmanuel Welch (D-Westchester), will repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act of 1995, which only requires notification — not consent.
While Illinois deals with its budget and pension crises, pro-life citizens are encouraged to attend the lobby day in Springfield on March 20th, to remind state officials of their job to protect the fundamental right to life for even the smallest among us. We must speak for those who cannot speak for themselves!
Churches and civic groups should organize and drive down on their own. Parking can be found south and west of the Capitol. Additional parking on west side streets.
To reserve bus space on Monroe St. between College & 2nd, contact Mark Seger with the City of Springfield, 217-789-2255. (If you are filling a bus to travel to Springfield as a group, please let us know!)
Please know your lawmaker’s name and Springfield office address before coming. Bring quarters to feed the street parking meter. Large signs are not permitted above the first floor. Bring business card-size heavy paper to call your lawmaker off the Chamber floor. Wear buttons and pro-life clothing.
