SPOTLIGHT: Illinois Senator McConchie on Parental Rights

Written by David E. Smith

At the recent SpeakOut Illinois conference, Monte Larrick had the opportunity to connect with Illinois State Senator Dan McConchie of the 26th district. To begin this edition of Spotlight, Sen. McConchie described his approach to his senatorial responsibilities and gave detailed advice to constituents who want to have productive interactions with their elected officials in Springfield. Monte and Sen. McConchie considered how efforts to repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act, mandate HPV vaccinations for ALL Illinois youth, and eliminate any religious exemption for immunizations are trampling on parental rights. They also discussed Planned Parenthood’s support of a proposed expansion of comprehensive K-12 sex education and a lack of movement regarding ethics and pension reform.

Take ACTION: Click HERE to contact your state lawmakers. Let them know that gutting or repealing the Parental Notice of Abortion Act is unacceptable. Urge them to uphold parental rights, especially on medical issues.  Ask them to oppose any and all efforts to usurp parental rights.

Please also make a couple of calls to reinforce your emails. During this time, make an appointment for a phone call with your state representative and state senator in their district offices.
