No Tax Dollars for Abortions!

Please urge your state senator and Governor Rauner to OPPOSE HB 40. The bill has already passed in the House by a vote of 62-55.
HB 40 will authorize the use of your tax dollars to pay for abortions in Illinois through Medicaid and on state government health care insurance plans. It is sponsored by State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz (D-Chicago).  This bill would reverse the current law which bans taxpayer funding of abortion under Medicaid. 
In 1977, before the ban on taxpayer funding of abortion under Medicaid passed into law, there were over 12,700 abortions paid for under Public Aid's Medicaid program with taxpayer dollars.  When the ban went into full affect after a June 1980 U.S. Supreme Court decision specifically upholding the Illinois Law, 22 abortions were paid for in 1981 with taxpayer dollars. Now, because a half million have been added to the Medicaid roll in the last 5 years, we could see 15,000 or more babies slaughtered with our tax dollars each year if HB 40 is signed into law!

Take ACTION: Please send a message to your state senator and to Governor Rauner o OPPOSE HB 40. Governor Rauner recently stated he would veto the bill if it got to his desk. Ask him to keep his word.
