Illinois bill would ban government employees from traveling to pro-life states

A bill introduced in Illinois this week by Democratic State Rep. Daniel Didech would limit the travel of government employees in an official capacity to states that have passed legislation that restricts abortions.

The bill would block the Illinois state government from requiring government staff to travel to states that have certain forms of abortion restriction or policies that require investigation of some pregnancy losses. Illinois' neighboring states Indiana, Missouri, and Kentucky all passed new laws in 2019 to protect unborn children as well as nine other states.

Didech's proposed law specifically cited states that have passed "heartbeat bills" that work to eliminate abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy, or when a heartbeat is detected in the unborn baby. The proposal would also ban trips to states that do not provide exemptions to their abortion bans for cases of pregnancy by rape and incest.

"What these other states are doing is, to me, very dangerous," Didech said of his legislative proposal. "To a large extent, yes, abortion is a big part of it, but it's not entirely about abortion."

As f'd up as rat controlled Springfield is today, it will probably pass and that ass hole Pitzker will sign it.
