There have more setbacks for the LGBTQ+-owned UpRising Bakery and Cafe, where damage still remains after the Lake in the Hills establishment was vandalized last weekend with hate messages, ABC 7 Chicago reported.
Owner Corinna Sac said village officials are now prohibiting her from hosting any more events, including one she was forced to cancel events slated for July 30 and Sunday, July 31.
According to a letter from the village's attorney, the business center where the bakery is housed is not zoned for entertainment events, and if the owner continues to host them, it says she will face a hefty fine and possibly her business's liquor license revoked.
Recently, UpRising was vandalized with hate messages hours before it was supposed to host a family-friendly drag show. Joseph I. Collins, 24 of Alsip, was taken into custody after allegedly causing the damage.
At a special session on July 30, Indiana state senators narrowly passed a near-total abortion ban, sending the bill to the state House, CBS News reported.
The Republican-controlled Senate voted 26-20 after about three hours of debate, passing the bill with the minimum 26 votes needed to send it on to the Housewhich Republicans also control.
The bill would prohibit abortions from the time a fertilized egg implants in a uterus. Exceptions would be allowed in cases of rape and incest, but a patient seeking an abortion for either reason would have to sign a notarized affidavit attesting to the attack.
Ten Republican senators voted against the legislation, including Evansville Republican Sen. Vaneta Becker, who said the measure will interfere with women's medical choices, their lives and free will by setting strict limits on abortion access in Indiana. GOP Sen. Sue Glick of LaGrange authored the abortion bill.
