The Illinois General Assembly is expected to vote on a civil union bill the week after Thanksgiving. The Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Unions Act would better protect the state's committed same-sex couples and their families by providing a range of legal protections including hospital visitation and health care decision making rights. Presently, Illinois law does not recognize same-sex couples, leaving them and their children vulnerable.
