Quotations from IL Senate Leader McConchie

Is former anti-abortion lobbyist Daniel McConchie your State Senator? Did you know that former anti-abortion lobbyist Daniel McConchie is a former anti-abortion lobbyist?

Your LakeCountyEye does, and dug up some citations from back when McConchie was a paid anti-abortion lobbyist for Americans United for Life (AUL)!

It's been 40 years since the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion, but Daniel McConchie isn’t giving up hope of overturning that decision.

Dan McConchie, vice president of public affairs for Washington-based Americans United for Life, was the keynote speaker. He cautioned there is "no one silver bullet" that will suddenly prohibit legalized abortion. But he urged abortion foes to bring pressure upon legislators to force votes on initiatives aimed at chipping away at legal abortion, suggesting it offers the best path towards success.

Dan McConchie wrote a piece for The Washington Times:
For pro-life Americans, the victories are numerous, and despite the November election, the outlook is bright. In 2010, we saw more than 20 state legislative chambers flip control and become more receptive to pro-life legislation. Additionally, 19 pro-life governors were elected, 11 of whom won seats previously held by abortion supporters. All four pro-life female gubernatorial candidates won their races and outnumber pro-abortion female governors 2-1. Those electoral successes led to huge gains in new pro-life laws. In 2011, more than 500 new pro-life bills were introduced across the country, and more than 90 of them became law — a 50 percent increase over previous years.
