Right to Life McHenry County (RLMC) welcomes you to our new 2017 Signature Ad.

We hope you enjoy the new look and format!

RLMC would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have faithfully participated in our efforts, year after year, to be a voice for those who have none. Well over 59 million babies have lost their lives to abortion since 1973 and the tragic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision! Gratefully, the statistics indicate a downward trend in the number of abortions. Hence, we look forward with great hope that soon we will see a drastic reduction because many pro-life legislators are now determined to be stronger voices for life than ever before!

Our local effort at reaching out to our McHenry County citizens has been successful, in large part, due to the wonderful participation of our pastors and local churches. To each and every one of you, we offer our heartfelt thanks! All the volunteers who spend time in the actual collection of signatures play a key role and to you, too, we extend our deepest gratitude!

Our mission will not be complete until all human life is respected and protected from the moment of conception until natural death. The goal and purpose of Right to Life McHenry County is to move hearts and minds to pursue protection for endangered innocent human life.

Renewed Push to Pass ERA in Illinois

There is a renewed push to pass the Equal Rights Amendment (ERS in the Illinois veto session that STOP_ERA_1.gif (135×130)begins on Octoberr 24th, 20`17. Supporters of the ERA are targetingnlegislators and threatening to run candidates against them in the upcoming elections if they, don't vote for the ERA.

To counter these tactics, your Illinois state legislators need to hear from you.  They need to hear your continued encouragement for them to vote against the ERA, and they need to know you will support them if they vote no on the ERA.  Please remind them that the poorly worded ERA will harm women, harm our unborn children, and harm our society. ...

https://resources.blogblog.com/img/icon18_wrench_allbkg.pngThe following are responses to Governor Rauner signing House Bill 40 into Public Act.  The act is effective starting June 1st, 2018.  For more on House Bill 40 please click here.

Representative Joe Sosnowski made the following statement in response to Governor Bruce Rauner’s announcement about HB40:

“For years, the Governor campaigned as a candidate who would "shake up Springfield" by focusing on the financial disaster that this state had become... and still is.  He said that we would leave the social issues alone and focus on what needs to be done to fix this state economically and grow jobs to make Illinois a better place to live and work.”

Rep. Sosnowski further commented, “Most tragically HB 40 will increase abortions. We try so hard to value and preserve life at all stages, yet this bill makes it easier to dismiss the innocent unborn who are our future...and it will cost the state more money. The Governor promised to veto HB 40 in the public, in the press, and in private. ...More ...

President Donald Trump after he stated in announcing his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act on October 2: 

“The United States is currently out of the mainstream in the family of nations, in which only 7 out of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.”

The Washington Post decided to fact check the president. Their conclusion? He is "backed by data."

International Right to Life head hears about this organization everywhere he goes in the world

Brad Mattes

As the president of the International Right to Life Federation, I frequently travel around the world. Literally, wherever I go, people ask me about LifeSiteNews.  They are familiar with the daily email publication and website and want to know if it provides reliable information on the life issues. 

ImageI’m happy to tell them that in the past I have served on the board of directors of LifeSiteNews, primarily because they do provide accurate, up-to-the minute information.  This answer is always met with a broad smile because they too have depended upon this vital source of pro-life news.
