Hymn to the Holy Innocents in Illinois State Capitol for those lost through abortion...

by the youth of St. John Cantius Church, Chicago who gathered together in the capitol of Illinois rotunda a few days ago to pray for the innocent babies who have died from abortion

Illinois is trying to push through some horrendous pro-death legislation.  Pray for them to fail.

Lully, Lulla, Lullay" by Philip Stopford is a lullaby sung to the Holy Innocents murdered by King Herod.


Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Lullay, thou little tiny Child,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
O sisters too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling for whom we do sing
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.
Herod, the king, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his owne sight,
All young children to slay.
That woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
And ever mourn and sigh,
For thy parting neither say nor sing,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

Illinois House Bill 2495 and Senate Bill 1942, misnamed the Reproductive Health Act, include so many harmful provisions the full effect of these bills can hardly be imagined. 

We know the legislation:
  • - seeks to define abortion as health care and a fundamental right;
  • - removes abortion clinics from a regulatory framework designed for     significant medical procedures;
  • - attacks a carefully constructed agreement in law on how hospitals care for   the victims of sexual assault;
  • - repeals the ban on partial birth abortion;
  • - repeals legal protections for doctors and hospitals who decline to participate   in abortions;
  • - requires private health insurance in Illinois to fully cover the cost of       abortion;
  • - removes the requirement that only doctors can perform abortions;
  •  as well as many other changes that in totality require us to treat abortion as a   celebrated right instead of a heart-wrenching tragedy.
Illinois House Bill 2467 and Senate Bill 1594 seek to repeal the Parental Notice of Abortion Act.
