Latest Assault on Religious Freedom: Illinois Abortion Bill Restricts Doctors and May Violate Federal Law


Illinois has no compelling interest in forcing doctors to violate their religious convictions, particularly given the fact that individual patients who are seeking abortion services can easily find such providers through a wide variety of means including the Internet, advertisements, and other referral services.This legislation that targets pro-life medical professionals is not alone in its hostility toward pro-life providers.This year, Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys settled a lawsuit over a similar New York law that according to the Alliance Defending Freedom would have required pro-life pregnancy centers to “post signs and publish in their ads that the city health department encourages women to go elsewhere.” After a district court struck down most of the law, the City of New York issued revised rules acknowledging the legitimacy of pro-life centers “offering women free pregnancy test kits that the women administer themselves without triggering burdensome disclosures just because of that practice” according to the Alliance Defending Freedom.
