On Oct. 28, Democrat lawmakers passed changes to the Illinois Healthcare Right of Conscience Act.
State Senator Jason Plummer (R-Edwardsville) made the following statement following the vote:
“Senate Bill 1169 is a direct assault on an individual’s right to make healthcare decisions for themselves. The Governor can’t stand the fact that the people of Illinois have had enough of his mandates and are standing up for their rights.
“However, as per usual, Democrat lawmakers would rather silence the people of this state and chose to weaken a long-standing law put in place to protect the citizens of the state from having healthcare services forced upon them. It’s a sad day when someone’s moral or religious beliefs are overshadowed by one party’s continued pursuit of total control.”
