Support Illinois Right to Life Action
Through your generous support, we are able to continue our vital work in the Illinois General Assembly, helping to stop anti-life legislation, promote more pro-life policies, and educate our legislators and citizens on life related issues. If you would like to give toward Illinois Right to Life Action and have a personal listing in our annual program book, here are your listing opportunities:
Illinois Right to Life Action
Illinois Right to Life Action is the legislative arm of Illinois Right to Life. As the state’s go-to organization for pro-life lobbying and information on defeating pro-abortion bills, Illinois Right to Life Action is highly trusted by pro-life political leaders and citizens alike to be their life affirming voice in the Illinois General Assembly.
Legislative Chairman: Ralph Rivera
Ralph Rivera, Illinois Right to Life Action’s legislative chairman, is the only full-time, pro-life lobbyist in the state. Many of the legislative victories made by the pro-life movement in Illinois are due, in large part, to his committed work.
With this help, we’ve defeated countless abortion bills – bills that would have increased the number of Illinois abortions by over 15,000 per year.
