Governor lauded by Chicago cardinal for pledge to veto abortion funding bill
Apr 28, 2017, 00:47
IL democrats introduced a bill that would keep abortions legal in the state if Roe versus Wade gets overturned.
It's patterned on worldwide women's marches January 21.
As hundreds of women converged on the capital for the Women's March on Springfield Tuesday, lawmakers in the Illinois House voted in favor of removing prohibitions on publicly funded abortions in the state.
"The intent ... is to protect women from a president who has been very, very clear about his desire to overturn Roe v Wade and make abortion illegal in some states", said state Representative Sara Feigenholtz, a Chicago Democrat and the bill's chief House sponsor.
The downgrades "reflect the effect of Illinois' severe budgetary challenges - as demonstrated by its almost two-year-long budget impasse - on the universities' financial positions, specifically as it relates to unrestricted cash flows and liquidity", the agency said. Republican state Rep. Peter Breen of Lombard says Medicaid-funded abortions do not qualify for federal match so would cost IL an extra $60 million a year. "Should it come from cancer screenings ... will it come from necessary surgeries?" "Only an arrogant billionaire who thinks he's accountable to no one, would say the liberty of half the people of our state is a distraction". "Today, we stated unequivocally that access to safe legal abortion will remain protected in IL". The house passed the abortion expansion despite a veto threat by the state's Republican governor, Bruce Rauner. Many opponents of the bill say this is bad policy, claiming it is a front for taxpayer funded abortions.
State Senate leaders told abortion activists that they plan to push the bill through the legislature and work to override Rauner's veto.
