WATCH LIVE: Illinois House Session
The Illinois House of Representatives returns to session this morning. The controversial House Bill 40 may be considered today. This bill would remove all bans on using taxpayer funding for abortion for basically any reason throughout all nine months of pregnancy under Medicaid; and would remove the ban on state employees’ insurance policies paying for abortions. House Bill 40 passed the Human Services Committee last week and is now on the House Floor.
