'It's time for Illinois change'

Print Article

The Illinois General Assembly spring session ended on Sunday, June 2. The session should have ended May 30, but there were too many "important" items of legislation to pass.

Important things, like making Illinois a magnet for late term abortions. In Illinois, women (and young girls, whose parents will never learn of her abortion, if legislators have their way) can abort a baby through 9 months of pregnancy.

But you might want to be careful, since we'll also be a magnet for sleazy, careless abortionists. No criminal penalty now for performing an abortion on a woman not pregnant, and the state will no longer inspect abortion facilities. How's that for "looking out for women?"

Another important thing was legalizing recreational marijuana. No tax relief for strapped homeowners paying the highest property taxes in the nation, but at least you can smoke a joint and not care. Who cares about increased high school dropout rates, rising social service costs and highway deaths?

Does it seem like the inmates are running the asylum in Illinois? Sign up to attend the 4th Annual Illinois Conservative Union (ICU) Conference in Bolingbrook: Strategy 2019 - Illinois in Play! It features speakers on election integrity, avoiding the pitfalls of candidacy in Illinois, and more. Go to ILPAC.org for details and registration.

So, we can join together to take back our state, or just hope things will get better. Sadly, we can see where blissful ignorance and apathy have gotten us. It's time for change.
