Back in the summer of 2010, I found myself cuffed and held in custody of the Chicago Police Department for allegedly violating the new Chicago “Bubble Zone” Ordinance. The offense you ask? Offering support and alternatives to women as they were walking in and out of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. By the way, the ordinance was passed by the city council after Planned Parenthood pressured aldermen to support it because people like me were effective at turning away their customers. You can read more about it briefly here.
Anyway, the first call I made from the police station after being arrested was to Peter Breen.
Peter Breen is Senior Counsel at the Thomas More Society and represented me in court against the city of Chicago that summer. An accomplished attorney, Peter was ready for a hard battle to exonerate me. Ultimately, the case was dismissed because the “witnesses” from Planned Parenthood failed to show up to court.
Peter has devoted himself to the pro-life cause for decades. He founded a pregnancy center that has saved hundreds of lives, and brought Project Gabriel to Illinois to provide tangible support to women facing crisis pregnancies. In fact, he’s battling to exonerate David Daleiden in California as I type this. David Daleiden is charged with multiple felonies after catching Planned Parenthood employees selling baby body parts a few years ago. His case, unlike my case, has a lot at stake. Please keep Peter, David, and the others in prayer as court proceedings continue.
Peter Breen, in addition to his important day job with the Thomas More Society, served as the state representative of the 48th house district of Illinois from 2014 to 2018.
He served with distinction as a social and fiscal conservative. He was virtually the only state representative to actually read the bills before they were debated on the House Floor (no joke!). After just one term, he was chosen to be the House Floor Leader, and was the leading voice of the Republicans in debating against Madigan’s agenda. He did such a great job that he was Madigan’s #1 target to defeat in 2018.
Peter is exactly the kind of leader we need in office. So please join me in collecting signatures!
He lost to the uncivil abortion zealot, Terra Costa Howard, in 2018 after she spent millions to attack Peter using money from Madigan and the abortion lobby. She has since gone on to vote for abortion up until birth, and vows to support the repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act. She also resorted to a letter-to-the editor of a local paper, calling Catholics bullies, for asking her to vote NO on the abortion bill (read about it here). She has even snubbed numerous Girls’ Health First women and teens who are constituents in her district, refusing to meet with them! Surprise, surprise.
Terra is just too extreme for Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Lisle and Wheaton residents.
Peter is already hearing from upset residents asking him to run again – some of whom voted for Terra Costa Howard thinking she was “moderate.” Well, shame on Terra for misleading voters.
This Saturday and Sunday, we’ll be sending people door-to-door to Conservative voters’ homes asking them to sign the petition. Peter needs several hundred more signatures.
