The Christian Post – Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law on Wednesday a bill that pro-lifers are calling the most extreme late-term abortion measure in the country.
“The governor and the Democratic super-majorities who fast-tracked this legislation have created a new death penalty in Illinois, with no possibility of appeal, for viable unborn preemies,” said Peter Breen, Thomas More Society vice president, in a statement.
The Reproductive Health Act, or SB 25, establishes a fundamental right to have an abortion while removing all rights from the pre-born. It repeals the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and legalizes late-term abortion even when there is fetal viability. . . . It also broadens the definition of “health of the patient.”
