12,000 Illinois Residents Submit Formal Objections to Pending Abortion Bills

Wow! Great job.

Thank you for the unprecedented number of witness slips filed in opposition to the two extreme abortion bills, HB 2495 and HB 2467.

Last time we checked, there were over 11,000 witness slips filed in opposition to HB 2467 and 12,000 witness slips filed against HB 2495.


“I have never seen this many witness slips filed on a bill in all my time working as a lobbyist,” said Ralph River, legislative chairman for Illinois Right to Life Action.

When we pro-lifers work together, the results are astounding. Thank you for your teamwork.

And with that, we also have some news to share with you:

HB 2495 and HB 2467 were not heard at the scheduled hearing this morning. Instead, they have been moved out of the Human Services Committee and into the Informed Consent Subcommittee.

What does this mean for us?

First, we’ll be watching these bills very closely these next few days. Please watch for our emails.

The bills could be rescheduled for another hearing. We will update you immediately on what happens next and what important actions we will need you to take.

The abortion lobby is going to take advantage of every chance they can get to squash our pro-life voices.

Don’t let them!

Next, keep doing everything you’ve been doing (and more) to help combat these two dangerous abortion bills.

The battle is only just beginning…and it can go quickly.

That’s why we wanted to encourage you to go to:


Everything you need to know about the two extreme abortion bills in the Illinois legislature and what you can (and must) do to help stop them is available right here. We encourage you to:

  • Visit the site
  • Do at least two of the action items
  • And share it with your family, friends, and church.

These next two weeks are crucial, as the extreme abortion bill package makes it way through committee.

We cannot thank you enough for your help in combating these horrific bills.

It’s needed now more than ever.

P.S. We have an updated flyer for you on the March 20th rally that we are holding in Springfield against HB 2467 and HB 2495. If you and your group are bringing a bus, parking information has changed. 
See you there!
