Prayer march calls for Illinois to end Planned Parenthood funding

Saturday, pro-life supporters marched around Illinois' Governor's Mansion, calling on Republican Governor Bruce Rauner to cut state funding to abortion provider Planned Parenthood.

Thus far, Governor Rauner has not responded to any pro-life groups' calls to investigate the 18 Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the state, nor has he initiated executive action to cut the budget expenditure as his GOP colleagues in others state have.

The pray-ers requests Saturday were not unseemly or outrageous, as the Daily Caller reports nearly 25 other states - including Illinois' neighbors to the north and east - no longer send taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood clinics.
