BENTON – Expressing agreement and support for the decision, State Rep. Dave Severin (R-Benton) says Friday’s US Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade is 50 years in the making.
“I am personally pro-life and have a record of supporting and sponsoring legislation that seeks to protect the unborn. I am heartened by today’s decision and believe this is the right path forward for protecting the sanctity of life.
“Unfortunately in Illinois, not much will change at this time despite my best efforts and the efforts of my pro-life colleagues. Illinois is led by Democratic politicians that favor zero restrictions on abortions, which makes their governing philosophy out of step with the average person.
As Governor Pritzker calls legislators back to Springfield for a special session, my constituents should know that I will stand strong against further attempts to expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand. I will maintain my 100% pro-life voting record.”
