Illinois Gov. Signs Bill Forcing Christian Doctors and Pregnancy Centers to Promote Abortion

Abortion is now the official state-preferred choice for Illinois women in unexpected pregnancies, after Gov. Bruce Rauner signed Senate Bill 1564 into law Friday afternoon.

Rauner, a Republican, held veto power over the legislation—which Democrats pushed through on a strictly partly line vote and put on his desk May 31—but he went against the grain of his own party in approving the legislation.

“We are extremely disappointed in Gov. Rauner for siding with pro-abortion Democrats by signing SB 1564 and expanding abortions in Illinois,” Emily Zender, executive director of Illinois Right to Life said in a press release. “This radical bill is a direct assault on the consciences of medical professionals and the missions of community supported pregnancy help centers.

“Science tells us that abortion ends the life of a preborn child, and for Illinoisans to be forced to participate in any way in abortion is a tremendous injustice.”

The bill enacts changes to Illinois’ Health Care Right of Conscience Act, once considered the gold standard of state-level First Amendment protective laws.

    Man will have many things to answer for to God. One, for creating a life, and then destroying it before it is born.

    I WOULD TELL HIM TO GO TO A VERY HOT PLACE, PICK UP AND MOVE OUT OF THAT STATE.

    BET HE LOSES A LOT OF CHRISTIAN DOCTORS. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO LIVE IN THAT STATE. I HOPE HE LOSES HIS DOCTOR AND CANNOT FIND ANOTHER.

      That’s what or how much he got paid for passing the bill. Yes! Doctors will move out of state. I have some of these MD’s WHO kill babies. They look evil and everyone needs to pray for them. In CA one MD had 6 offices and the NP did the abortions. The MD went to each office once a day. That’s how Obamacare works. I volunteered for Mission and many of the women were out of rehabilitation from alcohol or drugs. Abortion was just another way to use BIRTH CONTROL. Really screws up their life once they realize that they killed their baby. Sad situation AND he is to blame because HE passed the bill. Most abortion clinic are to dangerous.
