Dear Brother Knights, Lovely Ladies, and Right To Life Friends:

The Reproductive Health Act, signed into law by Governor J.B. Pritzker in June of 2019, wiped away decades of gains made by pro-life legislators and lobbyists in Springfield. It was easy for pro-life advocates like you and me to think all was lost. However, all is NOT lost as this past legislative session gave us hope for the future.

While comprehensive sex education passed in the Illinois House and Senate, it didn’t go as far as abortion advocates had hoped. As of this writing, efforts to repeal the Parental Notification of Abortion (PNA) Act are stalled.

All is not lost. But there is still much work to be done.

Between 2018 and 2019, the number of abortions increased in Illinois by over 10% and there are now approximately 46,000 abortions each year in our state. The latest numbers show that over 7,500 women came from out of state to obtain abortions in Illinois.

We MUST make Illinois pro-life again, and YOU are the key to winning Illinois for Life.

With prayers and best wishes for all that you do for Life.

Ty & Jane Simmons
