Illinois conservatives react to Kirk's Planned Parenthood compromise bill
Illinois conservatives are reacting negatively to U.S. Senator Mark Kirk's announcement Wednesday night that he and two other Republican senators were introducing legislation calling for the Department of Justice to investigate Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.
The bill, Kirk's press release says, calls on the federal government to defund any affiliates found to be involved in trafficking aborted babies' remains.
It is difficult to assess exactly how Kirk and his colleagues want all they say they want will happen, because as of Thursday morning, the text of the bill hasn't been posted.
