House Bill 40 should be repealed

Posted11/4/2017 12:01 AM

A letter on Oct. 21 from Dan Huber states that an "embryo, fetus, etc." should not be considered in the same regard as a "fully grown female." He also states that the right to life is a "religious belief and contrary to evolution and common sense."

In my opinion abortion is not a religious issue, it is a moral issue. It is taking a life. How many potential "fully grown females" have been eliminated by abortion?

Abortion does not respect reproductive rights, it destroys them. How many potential teachers, doctors, engineers, scientists, leaders etc. are going to be destroyed by this awful practice.

HB40 is a huge mistake. Gov Rauner should not have signed it and it should be repealed.
