Illinois Senator Calls for Hearings on Abortion-Breast Cancer Link

Illinois Senator Patrick O’Malley announced at the end of the legislative briefing sponsored by the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer in October that he intended to file a resolution with the Illinois Senate calling for hearings on the abortion-breast cancer link. His resolution (SR214) calls for an Abortion-Breast Cancer Task Force, which will consist of five members of the Senate. The resolution, which calls for public meetings to be held, is expected to be called soon in the Senate. A copy of the resolution can viewed on our web site.
