Guest Column: My faith calls me to support HB 40
By The Rev. Dr. Larry Greenfield
Throughout my life and work as a Baptist minister, seminary teacher and dean, and denominational executive in Illinois, I have always viewed support for women’s health and moral agency to be a core tenet of my faith and service to my community. Laws that push abortion out of reach or take away health insurance coverage from those who are struggling to make ends meet pose a serious threat to women’s health, and I’m called as a faith leader to speak out against these dangerous and demeaning policies.
