Illinois Right to Life seeks to build a culture of life in Illinois by harnessing the power of education. Their school, church, and community education programs are designed to be scientific based information allowing participants to follow the facts and to have their minds and hearts opened to the pro-life values. At the same time, it’s our job to provide the most up-to-date science so our community leaders can make pro-life decisions, so we spend many hours carefully researching. While we work to end abortion, we also support women in unplanned pregnancies and those in pregnancies with a crisis situation who need a helping hand.
Illinois Right to Life Action is the state’s go-to organization for pro-life lobbying and information on defeating pro-abortion bills, Illinois Right to Life Action is highly trusted by pro-life political leaders and citizens alike to be their life affirming voice in the Illinois General Assembly. As a matter of fact, Illinois Right to Life Action’s legislative chairman is the only full-time, pro-life lobbyist in the state. With this help, they have successfully defeated countless abortion bills – bills that would have increased the number of Illinois abortions by over 15,000 per year.
