State Senator Win Stoller (R-Germantown Hills) released the following statement in response to the Senate passing an abortion expansion bill this evening.
“Illinois Democrats are in a race to pass the most extreme abortion laws in the nation so the Governor and his allies garner national publicity for being the most pro-abortion lawmakers in the entire country.
“Just a year and half ago, the Majority Party chose to remove parental notification for minors who seek an abortion, ignoring the will of nearly 72 percent of Illinois citizens who wanted to keep the law. Now, if all of that wasn’t already bad enough, this new and last-minute amendment to House Bill 4664 will also require insurance companies to cover puberty blockers, even for minors. Illinois already had extreme pro-abortion laws, but this is beyond the pale.”
