Here’s what I heard from my answering machine when I came home late this afternoon:
Hello, this is David Smith of the Illinois Family Institute.
Illinois state lawmakers are considering a highly controversial bill that would make it easier for gender-dysphoric persons to obtain fraudulent birth certificates — even without surgery.
Birth certificates are historical documents that should reflect biological reality, not subjective feelings.
Please contact your state senator, Pam Althoff, to ask her to vote NO to HB 1785… no to falsifying birth certificates. Her Springfield office number is (217) 782-8000
You can find the organization’s take on the bill here
