Illinois Lawmakers Push for Taxpayer Funding of Abortion
Written By Monte Larrick | 02.24.17
Life leaders are warning that the number of abortions will dramatically increase in Illinois if House Bill 40 becomes law. They say the measure is a response on the state level to efforts in Congress to end the $430-million dollar annual taxpayer subsidy to Planned Parenthood.
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.
