Illinois Legislature Wants to Use Taxpayer Money to Fund Abortion All Nine Months! Tell the Governor, No!

Democrats and radical feminists often claim that they want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare” in this country. But now, with the “shout your abortion” movement of NARAL and Planned Parenthood’s CEO admitting that abortion is a core “service” of the profit-driven company, abortion advocates are admitting the truth—they really want legal abortion with no limits. 

The latest example of this extremist movement is right here in Illinois. The state legislature just passed a bill that would force taxpayers to fund abortions during all nine months of pregnancy.

That’s right. Not only do they want no-limits abortion, during all nine months of pregnancy—even after unborn babies can feel pain, are listening to their mother’s voice, and can even survive outside the womb—but they want you to pay for it!

This radical abortion bill now goes to Governor Bruce Rauner’s desk. Please sign this petition to tell him to veto this bill!

Even though Rauner is a Republican, he’s generally pro-abortion. He has said, however, that he will veto this bill because tax-payer funding of abortions is still so unpopular in America. No wonder! We don’t want our hard-earned money to be used to end the lives of our helpless and innocent neighbors.

It’s time to hold Gov. Rauner’s feet to the fire and tell him to keep his promises! Enough is enough. Every single human life is precious in the eyes of God, and we should do everything in our power to save even one innocent unborn life.

This bill would remove language from Illinois State law that states: “the unborn child is a human being from the time of conception and is, therefore, a legal person for purposes of the unborn child’s right to life.”

The legislature would take away this obviously true statement—that a human embryo or fetus is a living human being is a scientific fact—so that it could use our taxpayer money to fund the killing of these human beings for any reason!

State Senator Heather Steans (D-Chicago) stated that this bill would ensure unrestricted access to abortion. It’s been estimated that the bill would result in an additional 12,000 unborn babies killed every year in Illinois (on the taxpayer dime). That is exactly why we should oppose it!

Every life is worth protecting. Please join me in opposing this travesty of a bill and telling Gov. Rauner to veto it now!

No to taxpayer funded abortions

Dear Governor Rauner, 

It has come to my attention that the Illinois legislature recently sent you a bill that would force taxpayers to fund abortions in Illinois, no matter the reason and no matter the month of pregnancy. This bill is a travesty and should be vetoed at the first possible moment. 

I am strongly opposed to any form of elective abortion and it would go against my conscious for any of my hard-earned taxpayer money to help fund any abortion whatsoever.

Every life is precious in the eyes of God and I believe it’s my moral duty to protect and nurture my helpless unborn neighbors. Using my taxpayer money to fund abortions would not only stop me from doing that, it would force me to do the opposite—to participate in killing an innocent member of the human family. 

And I’m not alone in my opposition to taxpayer funding for abortion. An October 2016 study done by Politico and Harvard University found that just 36 percent of American voters support taxpayer funding for any abortions. 58 percent (including me!) oppose it. What’s more, most of the support for taxpayer-funded abortions comes from highbrow elitists. Of Americans who make $25,000 or less (who would qualify for Medicaid-covered abortions), only 24 percent favor taxpayer funding for abortions.

We stand united in our opposition to taxpayer money funding any ending of human life. Please veto this bill as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
