Righter: Illinois abortion law unenforceable after U.S. Supreme Court ruling
State Sen. Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) issued the following statement in response the U.S. Supreme Court ruling against a California state law that would have required crisis pregnancy centers to provide women with information about state-provided abortion. Similar legislation was signed into law in 2016 in Illinois.
“This is a victory for the unborn, and I would want to thank for the U.S. Supreme Court for recognizing what is right and the faith based rights of those who wish to not to contribute to abortions. With today’s ruling, Illinois’ similar law, which requires crisis pregnancy centers to provide information on abortion, will now be unenforceable.”
