Recently, two bills have been introduced into the Illinois House of Representatives and Senate that strike at the sacredness of life and human dignity. We ask you to act with great urgency to defend our Catholic values against this harmful legislation.
“As citizen of a state and people of faith who care about the common good, I urge you to join me and my brother bishops in an effort to defeat this radical departure from current law and practice in our state. Please reach out to your State Representative and Senator to urge defeat of these bills. You can find the name of your appropriate politicians and their contact information at https://www.ilcatholic.org/take-action/action-center/. To find out more about these bills, please consult the Catholic Conference of Illinois website, www.ilcatholic.org or call the Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity at 312- 534-5355 for further information.” -From the Cardinal’s letter dated March 23, 2019
