Congratulations, Senator Elgie Sims, Jr., on your March 28 front page story in the Journal about your interest in having good, open, non-political discussions about reproductive health care, i.e., abortions.
Sims can be applauded for never once using the word “babies” in his remarks. Truth be told, Abortions destroy babies. We all know that, but it is very difficult for some to admit. Especially pro-aborts.
Anyway, Chicago Democrat Sims is the chief co-sponsor of the new Reproductive Health Act legislation in Springfield that would be more abortion-liberal than any similar legislation in America.
Just think: Illinois -- last in everything else -- could be first in abortions.
Also notably unmentioned by Sims was the necessary and very positive mother/baby life-saving work being performed by more than a hundred Illinois’ caring pregnancy centers.
Life versus Death. Bring it on, Sims. Let’s discuss it. Truthfully.
