Pro-choice lawmakers and advocates are demanding that Governor Bruce Rauner pledge not to weaken or roll back provisions of a law that allows taxpayer funds to be used for abortions for women on Medicaid or state-funded employee health plans.

Rauner signed that legislation last year… a decision that caused a backlash from conservative Republicans.

Now the pro-choice group says with the landmark Roe v. Wade decision potentially in jeopardy at the U.S. Supreme Court, it’s essential that Rauner commit to protecting abortion rights in Illinois.
