Black Leaders Warn Against Pro-Abortion Bill
Written By Monte Larrick   |   02.16.17

A life leader says new Planned Parenthood-backed legislation is no way to celebrate Black History Month. She says if “progressive” state lawmakers truly cared about the future of black communities, they would reject Illinois House Bill 40.

TAKE ACTION: Please send a message to your state representative to ask him/her to vote AGAINST this pro-abortion bill. This legislation is HB 40 – a bill that would authorize the use of tax dollars to pay for abortions in Illinois through Medicaid and state government health care insurance plans. It is sponsored by State Representative Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago).  This bill would reverse the current law which bans taxpayer funding of abortion under Medicaid.
