The Illinois Legislature passed radical pro-abortion legislation Tuesday to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions after its Democrat sponsor claimed the bill was “God inspired.”

Capitol News Illinois reports the bill now heads to Gov. JB Pritzker, a pro-abortion Democrat, who has promised to sign it. Only one Democrat, state Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, joined Republicans in voting against the bill.

Democrat leaders insisted that Illinois needs to expand abortions to meet a growing demand in the mid-west. Many neighboring states are working to save unborn babies’ lives by prohibiting or strictly limiting abortions, and more pregnant mothers are traveling to Illinois to abort their unborn babies.

During the debate this week, state Sen. Celina Villanueva, D-Chicago, claimed God inspired her to introduce the pro-abortion bill, according to the report. She made the comment while criticizing another female lawmaker who described killing unborn babies as “immoral.”

“Guess what? It’s the same God that’s giving me the inspiration in order to be able to do this,” Villanueva replied. “…You don’t get to decide what happens to my body. You don’t get to decide what happens to the bodies of a lot of different people from other states that are coming to this state seeking refuge.”

Women do not need to abort their unborn babies to be safe or free, and thousands of doctors affirm that abortions are not health care and babies in the womb are second patients who deserve care.

However, Democrat leaders increasingly are insisting that killing unborn babies in abortions is health care.

Villanueva’s bill allows physician assistants and nurse practitioners to perform first-trimester surgical and drug-induced abortions that do not require general anesthesia. The legislation also protects abortionists who violate other states’ pro-life laws, and speeds up the state licensing process for all doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, according to the report.

Additionally, it forces public employee health insurance plans to cover elective abortions.

Other parts of the bill prohibit “information about abortions from being subject to subpoenas and orders for witness testimony issued from courts in other states” and allow abortionists whose licenses have been revoked in other states for aborting unborn babies to practice in Illinois, “pending an investigation by Illinois’ professional licensure oversight authority,” Capitol News Illinois reports.

Some parts of the bill also apply to medical professionals who provide transgender treatments.

“We are ensuring that Illinois will continue to serve the thousands of people traveling to our state every month to receive abortions and other reproductive and gender-affirming health care, which they can no longer access in their home states,” said state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, D-Chicago, who sponsored the bill in the state House, in a statement.

Illinois has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the country. In 2021, the state legislature ignored the public’s wishes and voted to repeal its parental notification law, which required at least one parent to be notified before their underage daughter has an abortion. The state also forces taxpayers to pay for abortions and allows unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth.

Earlier this week, the governor called for even more pro-abortion actions. Pritzker said he wants to pass a state constitutional amendment that would make killing unborn babies for any reason up to birth a protected right in Illinois.

In 2021, 46,243 unborn babies were killed in abortions, according to statistics from the Illinois health department.

Polls consistently show Americans support laws that protect unborn babies from abortion, especially after the first trimester or once their heartbeat is detectable. Most also support common-sense restrictions such as parental consent for minors and bans on taxpayer funding for elective abortions.
