Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider Responds to House Passage of Extreme Late Term Abortion Bill

Moments ago, the Illinois House passed the Reproductive Health Act (House Amendment 1 to SB 25) stripping away restrictions for late term abortions. Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider released the following response:

“In just a few short years, the Democrat party in Illinois went from advocating ‘safe, legal and rare’ to abortion on-demand, at any time, for any reason, and funded by taxpayers. This is not the typical pro-life vs. pro-choice debate I have been accustomed to in my lifetime. The RHA goes much further. It’s an extreme bill that functionally eliminates any and all restrictions for the termination of a life up until the moment of birth. That is unconscionable and I urge the Senate and the Governor to reject this bill.”

Advocates have pushed the legislation under the dishonest guise of cleaning up statute language in light of court injunctions since the Illinois Abortion Act of 1975 was written. Chairman Schneider commented on the attempted gaslighting of the public, saying, “The abortion activists pushing this insidious bill are trying to say it’s about Trump, about the bill passed in Alabama, or simply pretending the bill is something it’s not. It’s a late term abortion bill. Period.”
