Legislator opposes state abortion funding


Dale Righter (R-Mattoon) says legislation that would expand abortion in Illinois and have taxpayers paying for it not only goes against federal policy but is also an attack on the sanctity of innocent life.Last week, HB40 passed in the Senate with a vote of 33-22. It passed in the House in April.In a press release from Planned Parenthood of Illinois, the agency applauded the vote and stated that Illinois cannot risk turning back the clock on reproductive rights.The bill would ensure access to safe and legal abortion in Illinois, but Righter and Kyle McCarter (R-Lebanon) both voted against the legislation. It is headed to Gov. Bruce Rauner's desk next.In a written statement , Righter said: Under House Bill 40, which passed the Senate May 10, taxpayers would be forced to pay for all abortions, even elective abortions, for those on Medicaid and covered by state health insurances.
