McCarter lashes out at Rauner over abortion funding bill HB40; Says he should not run for re-election
I am extremely disappointed in the Governor’s decision. The new law requires abortions be paid for with tax dollars for any reason, including sex, race, or imperfection, throughout the full nine months of pregnancy.
Disappointing. Frustrating. Intolerable. These are just a few words that come to mind when characterizing the Senate’s week (Feb. 27-March 3) of little action, especially when it comes to our number one job: the state budget. However, I still have hope that common sense and courage will win in the end, and we will get a budget that will allow Illinois to move forward economically.
