Illinois Pastors call on Governor Rauner to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood

A group of Illinois pastors is urging fellow Illinoisans to call on Governor Rauner and state legislators to stop sending their tax dollars to Planned Parenthood with a video they released this week.

Called the "Christian Emergency League," following the lead of German pastor Diedrich Bonhoeffer that called the Nazis into account for their evil deeds, says they are stepping up because Republicans, conservative leaders and pro-life activists continue to remain silent and not hold the governor or state lawmakers accountable for continuing to send millions to Planned Parenthood, despite the revelation of clinics selling aborted baby body parts for medical research.

Despite claiming to have "no social agenda," Rauner has signed into law bills implementing a liberal social agenda. "It is evil to fund Planned Parenthood's practices,' the video says, and quoting Bonhoeffer, "Silence in the face of evil is in itself evil."
