“I don’t think the people of Illinois wanted our state to become known as the abortion capital of the Midwest, but our legislators and government have decided to move us in that direction.”
The Illinois Department of Health revealed almost 10,000 women from other states went to Illinois for abortions in 2020.
Illinois performed 46,243 abortions in 2020, which means the 9,686 women from out-of-state made up 21% of abortions.
Out-of-state women coming to Illinois for abortions has increased every year since 2014. But this is a massive increase. What has happened since then?
Let’s start in 2019.
The Reproductive Health Act made abortion a “fundamental right” for women in Illinois in 2019. Pritzker claimed the law pushed Illinois forward while other states went backward:
Entitled the Reproductive Health Act, the law repeals the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975. It eliminates felony penalties for doctors that perform abortions, removes waiting periods and removes the requirement that a married woman get consent from her husband.
The bill establishes the “fundamental right” of a woman to have an abortion and states that a “fertilized egg, embryo or fetus does not have independent rights.” The law also requires that the cost of an abortion be treated like any other medical procedure for insurance purposes.
Disgusting. I am so ashamed of my home state:
Former state lawmaker and prominent abortion opponent Peter Breen called the trend “disturbing.”
“When you look at the way Illinois has legislated, it makes sense that folks from out of state would stream into Illinois to get abortions,” said Breen, vice president and senior counsel with the Chicago-based nonprofit public interest law firm the Thomas More Society. “I don’t think the people of Illinois wanted our state to become known as the abortion capital of the Midwest, but our legislators and government have decided to move us in that direction.”
It’s only going to get worse.
In December, Pritzker signed a new law giving minors permission to have abortions without notifying a parent or guardian.
If you want your infanticide procedure to be considered a medical procedure then treat it like one. The insanity from these mouths:
Pritzker and other backers of the repeal, termed the Youth Health and Safety Act, argue that prerequisite is “dangerous” for pregnant teens scared that telling their parents could lead them to be kicked out, cut off or forced to have a child against their will, and puts undue burdens on youth who are homeless, have a parent in prison or who lack financial resources.
Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Alexis McGill in a statement called parental notification “unnecessary.”
“Trusting young people to make their own reproductive health decisions has long guided Planned Parenthood, and today, that trust became Illinois law,” McGill said. “The new law ensures that youth in vulnerable circumstances will have their autonomy respected, eliminating a significant barrier to accessing abortion.”
You’re also allowing rapists and people like Epstein to take their victims to Illinois to help cover up their crimes. The fact that this slips their minds blows me away:
“As Illinois continues to break down barriers to health care, we will remain a needed haven in the Midwest,” said Jennifer Welch, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Illinois. “We are planning for Illinois’ out-of-state numbers to continue to increase as long as other states are allowed to enact harmful and unconstitutional abortion bans and restrictions.”
Celebrating infanticide. Let’s not forget that this procedure is not an easy decision for the woman. So many of them feel abandoned and lonely. I wonder how many don’t want to have an abortion but feel it’s their only choice.
They do not care about the women. They are taking advantage of these women at a vulnerable time. Ghouls. Absolute ghouls.
I’ve always suffered migraines due to the head trauma from my difficult birth. My parents had to write notes to the school nurse every year giving permission for me to take Tylenol or Advil.
I couldn’t even carry a bottle of Tylenol in my backpack.
An adult cannot give a minor a Tylenol, but a minor can walk into a Planned Parenthood and have an abortion.
You do not want to know what I would do if anyone ever does anything medical to my child without my permission.
Then again the left does not hide their belief that your children do not belong to you.DONATE
