Maria Peterson is Endorsed by Illinois NOW
Independent Democratic Candidate for Illinois State Senate District 26
By: Maria Peterson for State Senate
Illinois NOW released the following quote about their support for Maria Peterson, "IL NOW PAC is pleased to endorse Maria Peterson for IL State Senate in the 26th district. Her decades of environmental work, coupled with her staunch support of women, ending gun violence, reproductive rights and the LGBTQIA+ community is squarely in line with IL NOW policy and the work that we do. We know, as Maria does, that all of these issues are intertwined and believe that she will be a strong voice for the residents in the 26th."
Peterson said, "I am very pleased to have the endorsement of Illinois NOW. One of the reasons that I am running to replace Dan McConchie is his history of assault on women's rights. For more than a decade, my opponent Dan McConchie worked for Americans United for Life (AUL), one of the foremost groups in the United States working to outlaw abortion and legislate against rights for women. Having him in Republican leadership in Springfield is not just bad for our district, it is dangerous for all women in Illinois. Dan McConchie worked for years to overturn Roe and will work to turn IL into Indiana, Texas, Florida. His work at AUL puts him in the place to know exactly how to do that. He knows how to stay under the radar and gain power... 62% of his own district, after 6 years, either can't ID him or think of him unfavorably. He knows how to work his way in and destroy our rights."
According to Wikipedia, "Americans United for Life (AUL) is an American anti-abortion law firm and advocacy group based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1971, the group opposes abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, embryonic stem cell research, and certain contraceptive methods.
The group has been influential in the spread of so-called 'Heartbeat' legislation across a number of American states."
