Illinois lawmakers haven’t been able to craft a truly balanced state budget for years and now the Left wants to add funding for abortions to the spending list. Enactment of House Bill 40 will likely come at the expense of programs that help women and children.
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.
