Rauner confirms support for abortions

Gov. Rauner opening the 2017 IL State Fair
Oregon became the first state to make all abortions free when their Democrat governor signed a bill into law Monday. Illinois could become the second state if Governor Rauner signs HB 40 into law.

Republicans gathered at the State Fair Wednesday to celebrate "Governor's Day" and when reporters asked, the governor didn't say directly what he plans to do with a bill sitting on his desk that will cause Illinois taxpayers to pay for all abortions.

However, Governor Rauner did tell reporters that he "strongly supports women's reproductive rights, and that he always has and always will," Terri Koyne of Benld wrote on her Facebook page.
