Girls' Health First engages with elected public officials on important matters pertaining to the health and safety of under-aged girls.  We help cut through the unhealthy messaging that big business, the media, and entertainment put forward. 

Girls' Health First will work with any elected official who also desires to put the health of girls first.

Advocacy

 

We strive to be an effective voice for under-aged girls in the political arena.

Because girls under 18 are not allowed to vote, we strive to be a strong advocate for them at all political levels.

Girls' Health First is especially effective in organizing at the grassroots level to ensure girls' voices are amplified in legislation.

Girls' Health First Makes a Stand Against The Repeal of the Parental Notice of Abortion Act

HB 2467 & SB 1594 puts under-aged girls at risk to sexual predators, abusive boyfriends, sex traffickers, and molesters.  The repeal of the current law will also put parents in the dark.  Girls deserve better than this.

The Reproductive Health Act

Girls' Health First Makes a Stand Against The Reproductive Health Act

SB 25 legalizes abortion up to the moment of birth for effectively any reason.  Plus, SB 25 eliminates or significantly undermines the current health and safety regulations for abortion facilities in Illinois, increasing the likelihood of injuries and complications for women and girls undergoing the procedure. Also, because this bill enshrines abortion as a "fundamental right," any future attempts to regulate abortion will likely be struck down by courts.

 

WHAT GHF ADVOCATES SAY

“Lobbying with Girls’ Health First has allowed me to specifically target the health of the mother as I speak with the state legislatures and senators. Many state legislators and senators were willing to hear us out because we specifically gave facts and evidence.  I hope that our lobbying efforts both help the health of girls and opens the hearts of the state politicians.”
