Illinois Republican State Rep. Avery Bourne delivered an impassioned plea for unborn children just before the state house passed one of the most expansive pro-choice bills in U.S. history.
The “Reproductive Health Act” would repeal the state’s partial-birth abortion ban and effectively legalize abortion up until birth, among other legal changes. The bill states that “a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights,” according to the Chicago Tribune.
The bill passed the state house 65-40, but not before Bourne – who is pregnant herself – delivered a fervent speech opposing the legislation.
“This bill will mean that if a baby requires extraordinary medical measures after they’re born, doctors could determine up to the 40th week of pregnancy that that baby was never viable,” an emotional Bourne said. “This bill means that if the baby is viable, a doctor can determine that the post-viable abortion can still take place based on a number of factors that include familial health and the age of the women.”
