We need to act fast. We have less than one hour.
Witness slips for the extreme abortion legislation in the Illinois General Assembly have just become available.
Witness slips are an important way for Illinoisans to voice their opinion on legislation. This is a chance for us to show our representatives how strong and large the opposition to this dangerous legislation is.
Please fill out your witness slip right away, and spread the word. Share this with your friends and family.

Make no mistake – pro-abortion legislators are trying to fast-track the abortion bill to passage, and here is how:
Democratic leadership has decided to take the language from the “late-term abortion, no restrictions bill” – formerly known as HB 2495 – and attach it as an amendment to SB 25.
(Please note: we can no longer refer to the abortion bill as HB 2495).
SB 0025 has already passed the Senate. The hearing in the House Appropriations-Human Services Committee is at 7pm. We are expecting a vote in the House on SB 25 to come very quickly.
Now is the time to:
1. Fill out your witness slip as an opponent to SB 25 House Amendment 1. You can do that here.
2. Call and email your state representatives and urge them to vote NO on SB 25. To find your representatives, click here.
3. Call Speaker Madigan, urging him to stop a vote on this legislation. You can call his office at 217-782-5350.
It’s now or never, so let’s get to work.
