Chicago’s Cardinal Blaze Cupich is taking action against a pair of Illinois abortions bills that he calls radical and disturbing.

The cardinal and six other Illinois bishops went this morning to the state’s capital in Springfield and told the General Assembly to vote down the proposed legislation.

“The state and it’s leaders, have not only a responsibility but a vested interest, in defending the sacredness and value of every human life,” said Cupich.

The measures would repeal all existing restrictions on abortion in the state, remove protections for doctors and hospitals who morally object to performing abortions, and repeals an existing law that requires health care professionals to notify parents before performing abortion on a minor.
