Religious groups demand Governor Rauner cut Planned Parenthood state funding

The Christian Emergency League, along with the Illinois Family Institute and other pro-life organizations in Illinois, are demanding that Gov. Rauner take action immediately to cut off all state funds going to Planned Parenthood.

They're planning a "Jericho Prayer March" around the governor's mansion.

"Recent videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress have exposed very clearly the gruesome practices in particular of Planned Parenthood," says Christian Liberty Pastor Calvin Lindstrom. "Attention has been given to Mark Kirk for his refusal to vote for cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood, but what pressure is being placed on Gov. Rauner?"

Illinois' comptroller records show that in Fiscal Year 2015, Illinois' cash-strapped taxpayers sent nearly $8 million to Planned Parenthood of Illinois and other affiliates.
