Support Three New State Reps Who Support Life!

Thanks to a super-majority of left-wing lawmakers, Illinois “boasts” some of the most egregious abortion laws in our nation.

On Tuesday, May 28th, the Illinois House voted 64-50 to pass SB 25 — an abhorrent bill creating a fundamental “right” to abortion throughout all 9 months of pregnancy. Three days later, the Illinois State Senate voted 34-20 to pass it as well. This past Wednesday, Gov.… Continue Reading

Deceitful Lawmakers Seek to Silence Pro-Life Opposition

Written by Laurie Higgins

For those unaware, this is the pernicious resolution riddled with bigoted language, non sequiturs, red herrings, and outright lies and intended to diminish the rights of IFI and IFA and other social conservatives to speak freely, assemble, and petition our government for the redress of grievances.… Continue Reading

At Illinois Family Action, our look at the results of the March 20th primary have only begun.… Continue Reading

The list could go on and on.

But to our shame is our state government. Illinois is at or near the top on a lot of bad lists: corruption, tax burden, unfunded liabilities, and debt.… Continue Reading

Written by John Biver

When it comes to taxpayer funding of for-any-reason abortions in Illinois, Governor Rauner and his anti-baby colleagues have won a battle, but not the war.

“We’re going to be on offense,” the video report begins. And longtime conservatives in Illinois will be thrilled to hear those words from a member of the Illinois State House of Representatives, Rep. Peter Breen (R-Lombard).

Very rarely over the past few decades have conservatives gone on offense inside the Illinois GOP or regarding any public policy.… Continue Reading
