Please call IL Representatives, Dan Swanson, 217-782-8032 and Norine Hammond, 217-782-0416 and ask them to VOTE NO on HB3735, the Clinic Crimes Bill.

Here is some information about this bill, which targets those praying and holding vigil outside of abortion clinics. 

“HB 3735 would create a censorship zone around abortion clinic by criminalizing so-called “intimidation” at abortion clinics and the physicians and nurses at those clinics.  This would include "contempt" or ridicule…” 

Would a person holding a sign showing a graphic picture of an aborted baby be guilty of “contempt or ridicule?”  Would a sidewalk counselor who makes an appeal of an abortion minded women to “please don’t kill your baby” be guilty of hate or contempt intimidation?  If this law passes, that could happen.

HB 3735 would make intimidation “a Class 3 felony for which an offender may be sentenced to a term of imprisonment of not less than 2 years and not more than 10 years”.

Take Action: Please call Represenatives Dan Swanson & Norine Hammond and ask them to reject these censorship zones by voting NO on HB 3735.  Ask your lawmaker to protect free speech and the rights of pro-life sidewalk counselors who want to save unborn babies and their mothers.
