Josh Harms, Republican candidate for the new 106th House District, praised the Illinois legislature for its introduction of two pro-life bills.

“As someone who believes that we have the responsibility to protect the most innocent among us, I am proud that Illinois legislators have introduced 2 bills intended to protect our unborn children and I wholeheartedly support these measures,” Harms said.

House Bill 4085, The Ultrasound Opportunity Act, states that an abortion facility must offer a mother seeking an abortion the opportunity to see an ultrasound of her child before she aborts her baby.

House Bill 4117 would amend the Ambulatory Surgical Treatment Center Act. Simply stated, abortion providers must be held to the same standards as other facilities that preform outpatient surgical procedures.

Harms went on to say, “Life begins at conception and I believe we need to do everything in our power to stop abortion. The introduction of these bills is a good first step to protecting the most vulnerable among us.”
