“Defying Scriptural Hierarchies in Every Way Possible” (Illinois Family Spotlight #249)

For better or worse, the Illinois General Assembly is back in session and a plethora of controversial, radical, and just plain ridiculous bills are scheduled for consideration. Monte Larrick and David Smith are joined by Jenna Smith, David’s oldest daughter, as they discuss the compelling reasons to retain the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. Jenna shares her perspective as an older teen and articulates the devastating mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences that could impact young girls (17-years and younger) if parental notification is repealed.

In the second segment of Spotlight, Monte and David cover some of the other bills and topics that will likely be addressed by the 102nd General Assembly: the REACH Act (sex education beginning in kindergarten); Critical Race Theory; decriminalization of hard drugs; balloon restrictions; and taxpayer-funded legal representation for dogs and cats – you can’t make this stuff up, folks. On a positive note, they also discuss the advantages of the Invest in Kids program and Rep. Brad Halbrook’s (R-Shelbyville) resolution to make Chicago the 51st state. The podcast concludes with information regarding upcoming events and conferences you will want to attend.
