“Parents Are Either Important, or They’re Not” (Illinois Family Spotlight #190)

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.
