Rep. Ives statement on HB 40

State Rep. Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) released the following statement today in response to the Governor's decision to sign HB 40:

"The Governor's decision to break his promise and sign taxpayer funded abortion on-demand is a profound and unprecedented betrayal beyond words. This is a tragic day for everyone who values the sanctity of life. The Governor's action today makes Illinois the first state in the country to mandate taxpayer funding of abortion under Medicaid at any time, for any reason as a result of signing legislation into law. This is a total failure of leadership."
