Strangely, three of these bills were sent to be heard in the House Agriculture and Conservation Committee – a committee that normally deals with grazing and water rights, livestock and hunting.

On Tuesday the 15th, ACLU activists from around the state descended on Springfield to express outrage at the idea that state lawmakers are “treating women like livestock.” While the rally was a success in drawing attention to the issues, HB 3156, which seeks to regulate abortion out of existence in this state, passed out of the committee on a 13-0 vote.

Now, we’re bringing the fight home. HB 3156 is sponsored by Representative Darlene Senger of Naperville. Join us for a rally in front of her offices to protest this terrible legislation:
