Illinois Resolution Opposing Taxpayer Funds for Abortions (HR 142)
This law was last updated on Mar 19, 2017
HR 142 is a resolution opposing legislative efforts to use state taxpayer funds to pay for abortions and to use taxpayer funds to pay for insurance costs for state employees to have abortions for any reason.
Under current law, Medicaid does not provide funding for abortions and insurance benefits for abortions are only provided to state employees when the life or health of the pregnant individual is in danger and in cases of rape and incest.
This resolution opposes such exceptions.
HR 142 also opposes efforts to keep abortion legal in Illinois in the event the Supreme Court of the United States overturns the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision.
