Governor Pritzker wants to gut the Healthcare Rights of Conscience Act. For nearly 25 years, Illinois has protected the rights of people's conscience of not participating in any medical procedure they are opposed to.

Repeal of Parental Notice of Abortion. No specific legislation that directly repeals this law, but there is a backdoor way of negating parental rights through confidentiality in the schools. Here is a more complete explanation:

CONGRESSIONAL MAPS – A complete gerrymander as expected.  The second version of how to split the state into 17 districts and give the Democrats a huge advantage came out last Friday.  We are expected to vote on those maps this week.  More than likely, this second version will be the final version or very close to it. Here are a couple of points about the maps.

  • The Maps set up a 14-3 advantage for the Democrats. Possibly 15-2.
  • The Democrats set up two Hispanic favorable districts. The new 3rdCongressional District stretches from the Western Suburbs of Wheaton and Bartlett to Logan Square in Chicago to make this happen.
  • Seven of districts have a piece of Chicago in them
  • Nine of the districts reach into a portion of Cook County to secure Democrat majorities
