Secular Media Hide Illinois Pro-life Victory

God's blessing in Illinois this week (defeat of pro-abortion legislation) has been virtually ignored by all media (other than Christian sources), despite prior mainstream media coverage

-- From "Illinois Version of Radical, Pro-Abortion Freedom of Choice Act Defeated" by Steven Ertelt, Editor 4/3/09

The Illinois version of the radical Freedom of Choice Act that Congress may eventually consider has been defeated. Today [April 3rd] was the last day for the state House to vote on the bill, known as the Reproductive Health and Access Act, and it failed to do so.

House Bill 2354 will not be called for a vote today [April 3rd] and, as a result, it will die for the legislative session. Abortion advocates will have to file the bill again next session for it to be considered once more.

"All our hard work has paid off," Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, one of the pro-life groups working to defeat the bill, told "The phone calls, letters, petitions and protests sent a crystal clear message to our state representatives."

Though the state version is dead for now, the federal FOCA bill is still a concern.

A spokesman for Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat who is chairman of a House Judiciary subcommittee that could consider the bill, said last month the bill is forthcoming.

FOCA would make legal all abortions throughout pregnancy for any reason and overturn hundreds of pro-life laws in every state across the country.
