Rauner won't say why he changed position on expanded abortion funding


Rauner won't say why he changed position on expanded abortion funding
Chicago Tribune

"I dislike the Illinois law that restricts abortion coverage under the state Medicaid plan and state employees' health insurance because I believe it unfairly restricts access based on income. I would support a legislative effort to reverse that law," Rauner wrote in answer to the April 2014 questionnaire.Rauner also checked "yes" boxes on questions about whether he would sign bills to maintain the legality of abortion in the event of a U.S. Supreme court reversal of its landmark 1973 decision as well as legislation about lifting Medicaid and state-employee insurance restrictions.But Rauner recently vowed to use his veto on pending legislation that would provide for Medicaid and state-employee insurance coverage of elective abortions and seek to ensure that abortions would remain legal in Illinois in the event of a reversal by the high court.
