The Illinois state government is fast-tracking identical “abortion on demand” legislation in both the state House and Senate, and the Democratic governor is fully on board. If passed, parental notice requirements will be obliterated, and there will be no protections for babies who survive abortions in that state. Abortion clinic regulations will also be repealed and non-doctors allowed to perform abortions. According to The Federalist: “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.” The measures are similar to those already passed in New York and Virginia. None of this pro-death legislative popcorn is an accident. Blue states are amid a concerted effort to beat the Supreme Court to the abortion finish line ahead of the end of Roe v. Wade.

Illinois’ new Democratic governor, and a complicit Democratic legislature, are reportedly “fast-tracking” a pair of identical measures in the Illinois House and Senate designed to greatly extend legal abortion within the state of Illinois, wipe out parental notice requirements, and deny any and all rights to any pre-born individuals in the state.

The Federalist reports that the new laws boil down to one sentence: “A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the laws of this State.”
Per that outline, the bills would mimic similar measures in New York state and Virginia, which would legalize abortion up until the moment of birth (and, potentially, throughout the birthing process). Like New York’s law, it would alter the state’s code, completely decriminalizing any harm or murder of a wanted child — through domestic abuse or intentional act — along with other major changes to state policy.
