State Rep.Allen Skillicorn spoke to a Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce group yesterday .
He was greeting by women wearing red from the McHenry County Citizens for Choice, whose Facebook page reported:
“Six McHenry County Handmaids braved freezing temperatures in the early morning hours to call out IL State Rep. Allen Skillicorn (R-66) when he appeared at a local Chamber of Commerce event.
“Skillicorn, an anti-choice legislator, voted AGAINST HB40.
“The Handmaids expressed their determination to Keep Abortion Safe and Legal, and reminded their male, anti-choice legislator that Pro-Choice IS Pro-Life.”
