From our friends at Illinois Right to Life:
FIRST — The Forced Abortion Information Act claims to protect the ability of individuals “to make autonomous, informed and evidence-based decisions” about having an abortion. However, it is another attempt to force pregnancy help centers to cooperate in some way with abortions or referrals for abortions.
This bill would most likely lead to the closing of pregnancy help centers entirely.
SECOND — The Forced Abortion Information Act makes pregnancy resource centers and sidewalk advocates civilly liable for “deceptive acts or practice” for any concealment, suppression, or omission of a “material fact”.
This means pro-life pregnancy resource centers could be liable for refusing to provide a woman with instructions on how to obtain an abortion, even if it violates an individual’s conscience.
THIRD — Under the Forced Abortion Information Act, the Illinois Attorney General has the authority to initiative a complaint against pregnancy resource centers according to “public interest.”
