Transgender men and women can now legally pretend to be the opposite sex by acquiring falsified birth certificates.

Anti-Family Gov. Bruce Rauner signed HB 1785 into law last Friday, scoring a huge victory for the LGBTQ community.  This law will make it even easier for men and women, who currently think they are the opposite sex, to acquire falsified birth certificates.  In May, HB 1785 was passed by both Illinois House (63-43) and Senate (32-22).

HB 1785 amends the Vital Records Act to allow gender-dysphoric persons to change their gender on their birth certificate with a declaration from a health care worker or mental health professional that states the person has undergone “gender transition treatment.” Click here to read the final bill for yourself.

As you may recall, Rauner ran for office as a fiscal conservative with “no social agenda.”  Regrettably, voters believed him.  Since becoming governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner has supported and signed every anti-life, anti-family bill into law.

Please Prayer:

  • Pray for God to intervene in Illinois government, removing legislators from office who do not support pro-life, pro-family bills.
  • Pray for the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of our Governor, his family, and the Illinois General Assembly.
  • Pray for the church to awaken and publicly defend righteousness.

Take Action: 2 Chronicles 32:7-8 says, “Be strong and courageous!  Don’t be afraid or discouraged … for there is a power far greater on our side!  We have the Lord our God to help us and fight our battles for us.”
