State Senate Candidates’ Night – Part 3 – Abortion

Continuing coverage of the League of Women Voters Candidates’ Night for those seeking State Senate seat looking at answers to the abortion question, whether it should be legal/criminalized.

My notes are below:

32nd District

Craig Wilcox

  • Mary Mahady

    Republican Craig Wilcox – “I would never advocate for criminalization.”  He said,”The only one who benefits from abortion is the donor,” meaning the man who would avoid paying child support.

  • Democrat Mary Mahady – “Pro-Choice.”  She said , “I will always fight for women to make the choice for their bodies.  I think there are people who would like to see people punished for that.”

33rd District

Don DeWitte

  • Nancy Zettler

    Republican Don DeWitte – noted the U.S. Supreme Court made legal abortion “the law of the land.”  He added, “I do not support the expenditure of public funds [to pay for abortions].”  In addition, he said he favors parental consent and opposes late term abortions.

  • Democrat Nancy Zettler – “I am unequivocally Pro-Choice.  My and my husband’s choice created and built our family on adoption.”

26th District

Don McConchie

Tom Georges

  • Republican Dan McConchie –  reference the U.S. Supreme Court decision and noted that “more than one person is involved.”  He said he believed that policy should be handled by legislative action on a state by state basis.
  • Democrat Tom Georges –  “Pro-Choice.”  I believe legislators should raised themselves above religious beliefs.”


State Senate Candidates’ Night – Part 3 – Abortion — 15 Comments

  1. Wilcox forgot these abortion ‘beneficiaries’:

    1. Planned Parenthood and other, lesser, abortion perpetrators for $
    2. Cultural Marxists, like his opponent, Duckworth, Hillary, Bernie, et al.
    3. Chinese Communists, and others (drop in Western birthrates are good, these abortion-on-demand countries get weaker and weaker.
    4. The Devil
    5. Oncologists/cancer industry (women who have abortion, more likely to get various cancers)
    6. Satanists

  2. Those who are in favor of so-called Pro-Choice really are in favor of death for infants in the womb. These people would not even be here if their mothers decided, CHOSE, to kill them in their wombs. Democrats, liberals and the mostly left leaning media like to use the nice sounding term Pro-Choice to gloss over the true outcome which is death to an infant/fetus.

    The terms Pro-Life and Pro-Choice originated in the early 1970’s.

    A more honest term to use rather than Pro-Choice is Anti-Life OR Pro-Death.

  3. Abortion is an Elective Medical Procedure, all Elective Medical Procedures should NOT BE PAID FOR BY THE TAXPAYER.

    No One is outlawing abortion, Doctors have performed abortions for decades.

    If a Woman or a Child needs an Abortion, because of something illegal transpired . . .go to the police and tell the truth.

  4. Mahady is a Communist, and anti-White racist.

    Yes, she is White herself, but she’sa racist because she’s part of an anti-White, racist program.

    She even brags about it in her own political website: [hit “Read More About Mary”, then look at ‘Political’]

    ” I have always been interested and engaged in local politics, but I wasn’t truly involved until running for office. As a Democrat in McHenry County, I was not expected to defeat a Republican, much less an 18-year incumbent…but I did! Once I was elected I became involved in the McHenry County Democratic Party as a precinct committeeman and as the treasurer. My political training was enhanced when I was selected to participate in the Illinois Women’s Institute for Leadership program (IWIL) and completed that training with 11 other amazing women that made up the Class of 2015.
    It has been through my continued involvement in politics on the local, township, county and state level that has inspired my decision to run for State Senate where I believe change has to occur so we can put Illinois back on the right track.”

    THIS: My political training was enhanced when I was selected to participate in the Illinois Women’s Institute for Leadership program (IWIL) and completed that training with 11 other amazing women that made up the Class of 2015.

    This is what iwil propagandizes about:

  5. … and this is what they preach: HATRED!

    iwil is a radical LGBTQ feminist anti-White group operating under the false flag of ’empowering women and girls in a patriarchal system’.

    Just ask Mahady about her allegiance to all things ‘transgender’!

  6. Can we stop using religion as an argument against doing something in government.

    There are many more intelligent points to be made of why something shouldn’t be done than to bring God into it.

    Especially since many times you are debating a God less person.

  7. DeWitte is a typical RINO.

    Call central casting for a modern day RINO, DeWitte shows up in a bow tie.

  8. Wow, Ms. Mahady wants so much change.

    Change that means the government will have even more power over us.

  9. Why’s everyone focusing on Mahady?

    Zettler is even worse.

    She would ban home schooling and have a constitutional amendment (IL) to forbid firearms ownership.

  10. pot, abortion…

    Next up: where should trans people urinate and what do you think about SCIENCE???

    The toughest questions about the most relevant issues for the greatest politicians of the best state!!!

  11. All these negative comments about Mary Mahady.

    Too bad.

    But I guess the fake news NWH won’t investigate these things.

  12. The issue of abortion will be revisited based upon the science of today and what we believe is the beginning of life.

    It is always shocking when people talk about rights for everyone but support the legal killing of an unborn child.

    Aren’t they the most vulnerable?

    They have no rights?
