An Illinois pro-abortion lawmaker is facing public scrutiny after she reportedly told constituents that castrating men would help end abortions.
The DuPage Policy Journal reports several constituents confirmed that state Rep. Dianne Pappas, a Democrat from Itasca, made similar remarks about castration during two separate meetings. They met with her about a pro-abortion bill in Illinois.
Jackie Hayden, a pro-life Republican from Pappas’ district, said she and several others recently set up a meeting with her to explain their opposition to state House Bill 2495, the Reproductive Health Act.
The pro-abortion legislation would treat abortion as a “fundamental right” and strip away even minor protections for unborn babies and medical professionals who object to abortions. Pro-life voters fear the bill could pass with Democrats in control of both state houses and the governor’s office.
However, state lawmakers have not moved forward with the bill recently. One possible reason is the massive public opposition. In March, so many Illinois pro-lifers flooded the capitol in opposition to the bill that police had to close the building due to overcrowding.
Hayden said they met with Pappas to discuss the pro-abortion bill and left shocked by the state representative’s statements.
In an op-ed for the local news, Hayden said Pappas emphatically stated her support for the bill just two minutes into the discussion. Then, she said, the politician suggested that men be castrated to stop the “abortion problem.”
“You know ladies, with technology the way it is, we wouldn’t have an abortion problem if we applied a plan,” Pappas said, according to the report.
“Now, I’ve been told it’s a bit radical, but if we allowed men to be castrated, took the sperm to the bank, collected tax dollars on it for storage, then when it’s time, to have the man decide he’s ready to begin a family…. well then, problem is solved!” (Read More)
