Rauner still mum on abortion funding bill

VETO HB40
The good news for those that want the Governor to veto a bill that would force taxpayers to pay for low income and state employees' abortions is that the bill hasn't moved to his desk as of Friday.

That means abortion-advocating group Personal PAC's Terry Cosgrove isn't confident the governor will sign it into law.

The bad news is that the Governor refuses to confirm that he's going to stick with his first public comment made in April, and veto HB 40 if it reaches his desk.  Now he's telling reporters he's "assessing" the bill.

Action:

Contact Governor Rauner, thank him for his promise to VETO HB40.  Please affirm that he still intends to do so.
