No Tax Dollars for Abortions!

Please urge your state representative to OPPOSE HB 40. The vote margin is razor thin and your action is critical!

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 Representative 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 yea if HB 40 is allowed to pass!

Since the Illinois ban on taxpayer funded abortions under the Public Aid Code was upheld by the United States Supreme Court in June 1980, at least 10,000 babies in Illinois were saved each year through 2014.

Take ACTION: Please send a message to your state representative to ask him/her to vote AGAINST HB 40.
