Illinois governor signs Medicaid for abortions

Illinois governor signs Medicaid for abortions

In a statement to the press, Rauner said his approval was not a new position for him and that he campaigned on the principle in 2014. In April, he threatened to veto the bill over the "sharp divisions of opinion of taxpayer funding of abortion".

But Rauner did not stick to his promise.

Rauner and his wife were listed as $50,000 sponsors of a Planned Parenthood of IL fundraiser in April.

He is running for re-election in 2018, and the move could prompt Republicans to put up a challenger in the primary. "That Illinois is standing with women and Illinois will allow women to have access to safe and legal abortions".

"Politics are politics", Rauner said. That will add to the 39,856 abortions per year already performed in IL.

In other words, should the infamous 1973 Roe decision ever be overturned, as many millions of pro-lifers hope and pray for, and are working toward, the state-sanctioned killing of unborn babies would continue unabated in the Land of Lincoln.

Rauner's decision to sign H.B. "I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for a 15-year-old refugee who chose to have me and keep me". "We are beyond disappointed that our governor is willing to ignore the voices of his state's citizens and every member of his political party, and expand abortion in IL at taxpayer expense".

"There are a lot of deep pockets and a lot of people that are very unhappy about this action and really the combined actions of the Rauner administration, just general incompetence of the administration and really it goes right to the top", said Breen.

The legislation likely will have devastating effects on unborn babies in IL.

The proposal would allow abortions funded by state employee health insurance and Medicaid.

"There is no reason for taxpayers to have to pay for abortions regardless of the reasons the abortion is being performed", he said.

"House Bill 40's expansion of taxpayer-funded abortions in IL, which already exceeds federal guidelines, moves IL beyond the position of 47 other states by expanding taxpayer funding for purely elective procedures", he said.

The bill would override parts of a 1975 law that would ban abortions in IL should the U.S. Supreme Court ever overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion. But local news outlets cited a survey Mr. Rauner took as a candidate saying he supported expanding Medicaid coverage for abortions. These findings are consistent with previous polls from various groups.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, 75 percent of women who undergo an abortion are either poor or low-income.
