This week, the Illinois House of Representatives will consider a bill to make Illinoisans pay for abortions for those on Medicaid, and state employees regardless of the reason.
We’re projecting that this bill could increase state funded abortions by about 12,000 per year, based on data from the last time Medicaid funded abortions. We cannot let this happen! This is not only a social issue, this is a budget issue. Our state is broke and cannot afford this additional funding.
WE NEED YOUR HELP. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF WITNESS SLIPS FROM PEOPLE ALL OVER THE STATE IN OPPOSITION TO HOUSE BILL 40 BEFORE THE COMMITTEE HEARING ON WEDNESDAY!
If thousands of people stand in opposition though these witness slips, it will send a strong message to the committee that the Pro-Life movement is again ready to fight hard against these kinds of laws.
Help us fight against this bill by taking a couple minutes and filling out a witness slip in opposition:
