Illinois General Assembly doesn’t represent many of us
To the editor, Get ready, Illinois. The progressive Democrat super majority in the Illinois General Assembly is poised to pass the same brutal laws as New York, which now permits abortions performed by nondoctors to the day of birth, and infanticide post-birth. Civilized people are repelled, but New York state lit up the One World Trade Center pink “to celebrate this achievement and shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.”
HB2467 is proposed to overturn Illinois’ parental notice law. Silly you; you don’t need to know, or give permission, for your 14-year-old daughter to have an abortion.
And what about Illinois’ “restrictive” voting laws, which still don’t require a photo ID? HB0195 would have the state mail every person on the voting rolls a ballot. You don’t even have to ask for it. Of course, there will be no fraudulent retrieval of free-floating mailed ballots.
The General Assembly hasn’t represented Illinois’ rural and suburban citizens for 30 years. … Learn about New Illinois, a state within a state, with its own legislature. Leave Illinois without moving.
