One of the central issues in the fight against HB2354 is the impact it could have on our kids by way of the mandatory sex-ed it would impose on all Illinois public schools.
With that in mind, who's running for school board in your area? Do you know the candidates? Do you know where they stand on comprehensive sex-ed and other issues that effect Illinois families?
If you do know, post what you know about the candidates at the Stop Illinois FOCA website so others can benefit. If you don't know, find out and report back with the information. I've turned off comments on this post so we can consolidate everyone's knowledge in one place at the Stop Illinois FOCA site.
Together, we can be informed voters and impact Illinois for the good of families.
Mike and Jimmy, two members of Students for Life of Illinois, have taken on an ambitious pro-life project over their spring break, and they'll be bringing it right here to Aurora on Friday, March 27.
They've called it Biking for Babies. Their plan is to bike 600 miles across Illinois in six days, getting sponsorships for every mile. They hope to raise $20,000 to be split between two worthy Illinois pro-life groups.
Mike and Jimmy have already completed half their ride, but it's not too late to support this great pro-life effort. Visit the Biking for Babies website to donate or to find more information.
On Friday, March 27, Mike and Jimmy will be biking from DeKalb to Chicago. At noon, they will be stopping to pray at Planned Parenthood Aurora. Please join them along with Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League to support this worthy pro-life effort and add your prayers for the unborn to theirs.
With spring in the air, over 130 protesters lined New York Street on March 21 with signs reading Stop Abortion Now, Moms for Life, Planned Parenthood LIES to You and more—the largest protest at Planned Parenthood so far this year.
Before the start of the protest, a baby was saved from abortion by sidewalk counselor Wanda Geist.
Project Love, a division of Illinois Citizens for Life Charitable Trust, will be hosting their "Rise and Shine" benefit breakfast Sunday, March 29th at 11 a.m. at the Naperville Country Club, 25W570 Chicago Avenue, Naperville (map) to further their work in support of young mothers.
This year the "Caritas" award, given to individuals for outstanding service in defense of life, will be presented to Eric Scheidler. Please come and give him your support and gratitude.
The cost is $20 and reservations are required and may be made by calling Eileen at 630-963-8039. [Continue reading . . . »]
Last night, the third mayoral debate occurred at the Wesley United Methodist Church. Audience participants were provided the opportunity to submit questions to be asked of the candidates. The final question of the night was:
"In what ways does your faith form your opinion of Planned Parenthood?"
Summarizing the candidates responses, in the order they answered the question:
Richard Irvin: "… Planned Parenthood is bad for Aurora. … It's an issue of how that organization … came into our city using deceptive practices."
Stephanie Kifowit: "… as a family we are anti-abortion … I also believe … I cannot take a stand that I'm going to say I'm against something that is, of course, right now legal in the state."
Tom Weisner: "If faith informed my actions in this case I might very well be violating my oath of office … There was no legal basis for me … to withhold the permit. I do take an oath to uphold the laws governing our city."
A coalition of pro-life groups from across Illinois have united in an effort to stop HB2354, the Illinois version of the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA).
This pernicious piece of legislation would:

Stalwart pro-lifer Randy Means was arrested at Planned Parenthood Aurora Saturday Morning. Randy was standing on a public sidewalk, talking to the Planned Parenthood employees as they entered the building.
Randy stayed on public property, did nothing intimidating and made no threats to the staff. He merely reminded the employees that they would have to account before God for their involvement in the death of His precious unborn children, and that no one knows when that day will be. As Our Lord said, no one knows the day or the hour of judgment, it could this very day.
Nevertheless, Planned Parenthood employees called Aurora Police and claimed to have been "disturbed" by Randy and the sign depicting an aborted baby, which Randy has been faithfully holding outside the clinic for nearly two years. For this and nothing else, Randy was hauled off to jail on a charge of disorderly conduct. [Continue reading . . . »]
Planned Parenthood, the nation's number one abortion provider, has been having a series of "Community Forums" across Illinois to promote Illionis HB2354, the Reproductive Health and Access Act (RHAA).
This bill is essentially the Illinois version of the so-called Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). Earlier in February, the Fox Valley Families Against Planned Parenthood was able to scuttle one of these meetings in Aurora.
Around that same time, the Pro-Life Action League received word that Planned Parenthood would be hosting two similar events in Rock Island, Illinois taking place February 15 and 25.
