Illinois Governor deaf to appeals to defund abortion giant

The Illinois movement to defund Planned Parenthood has arisen due to the undercover videos of Planned Parenthood executives discussing the harvesting and sale of aborted baby body parts. David Smith, who heads the Illinois Family Institute, has instigated a multi-pronged approach to defund the abortion-provider.

“A group of over 200 pro-life citizens from across the state of Illinois met at the governor's mansion in Springfield and did a prayer walk around the governor's mansion, a Jericho prayer march, demanding, praying, hoping and witnessing for life,” he explains.

Smith says they are asking that all state business with Planned Parenthood be terminated, but Governor Bruce Rauner hasn't shown a real acknowledgement of their demands. “They did respond to the media saying 'no comment,'” he tells OneNewsNow.
