When announcing his plan to increase state funding for childcare by 5%, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker said he wanted Illinois to become the "best state in the nation for families raising young children." This is in spite of his radically pro-abortion stance that has also led him to say he wants Illinois to be an abortion hub for neighboring states with more restrictive abortion laws. Illinois couldn't possibly be the best state for raising young children if it supports the murder of unborn children with taxpayer dollars.

An excerpt from the governor's press release:

“I’ve asked you to join me today as we set an audacious goal: Illinois will become the best state in the nation for families raising young children, with the nation’s best early childhood education and child care,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “My promise is this: our work won’t be complete until every child in this state enters kindergarten with the cognitive skills to think, learn, read, remember, pay attention, and solve problems, but also the social-emotional skills to communicate, connect with others, resolve conflict, self-regulate, display kindness and cope with challenges. These are the skills that high-quality early learning programs help young children develop, and I’m proud to say that many of the modern standards and model programs were conceived and developed right here in Illinois.”
