McCann statement on HB40
SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Sam McCann (R-Plainview) released the following statement after the Illinois Senate passed House Bill 40.
“Taxpayer funded abortions represent an affront to the morals of the people of Illinois and the sanctity of life. Further, the middle of a budget impasse is the wrong time to be adding millions of dollars in costs for elective abortions that could be performed for any reason, and at any point in the pregnancy,” said Senator McCann. “This bill is bad for Illinois on many levels. I truly hope the Governor will follow through on his promise to veto this awful legislation.”
