Title: He’s Been Named the “Worst Republican Governor in America” After Funding Abortions With Tax Dollars

The governor of Illinois recently earned the title of “worst Republican governor in America” for his support of a radical new pro-abortion law.

The label for Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner came from the National Review, one of the top conservative magazines in the country, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

In September, Rauner drew the ire of conservatives across the country when he went back on his word and signed a bill to force taxpayers to pay for abortions. The new law keeps abortion on demand up to birth legal and establishes the Land of Lincoln as a “safe haven” for women seeking abortions. The law also forces taxpayers in the already cash-strapped state to pay for abortions for any reason up to birth.

“The governor’s offense was to have signed what may be America’s most radical abortion-funding law after vowing to veto it,” the magazine’s John J. Miller wrote. “The betrayal capped a season of defeats for conservatives, including an income-tax hike, a big bailout of Chicago’s public schools, and turning Illinois into what critics of illegal immigration are calling a ‘sanctuary state.’”

Here’s more from the report:

Rauner in April said he wouldn’t support the measure, but he shocked many, on both sides of the aisle, when he signed it … That prompted outrage from many anti- abortion Republicans.

Rauner’s campaign focused on Democratic Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan in reacting to the story.

“We’re glad National Review pointed out that Mike Madigan and his cronies have consistently blocked Governor Rauner’s reform agenda just to protect their own corrupt practices,” campaign spokesman Justin Giorgio said.

“Governor Rauner will keep fighting to make Illinois a better place to live and work for everyone by working to lower property taxes, increasing school choice and eliminating job-killing regulations.”

Rauner currently is running for re-election in 2018, but many predict that he will lose in the Democrat-controlled state.

When he first ran for election, Rauner made no secret of the fact that he supports abortion, but he promised to stay away from the controversial issue.

Rauner previously said he would veto the radical pro-abortion bill because taxpayer funding for abortion is too “divisive,” a fact backed up by polling. Polls consistently show that a strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortions, including those who identify as pro-choice.

But in September, Rauner changed his mind and signed the radical pro-abortion bill into law.

The backlash came swiftly. Soon afterward, Chicago Catholic Cardinal Blase Cupich criticized the governor for breaking his promise to millions of voters. And the Chicago Sun-Times ran a headline “Benedict Rauner.”

Rauner’s own Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti criticized him for caving into the abortion industry. Sanguinetti called the pro-abortion legislation a “political ploy” to divide the state. She also shared a very personal reason why she supports the right to life for unborn babies.

“As a pro-life Republican, I disagree with the Governor’s decision to sign HB 40,” Sanguinetti said. “I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for a 15-year-old refugee who chose to have me and keep me.”

The legislation will have devastating effects on unborn babies in Illinois.

Emily Troscinski, executive director of Illinois Right To Life, said the state once funded unrestricted abortions through Medicaid in the late 1970s, and taxpayers paid about $1.8 million for about 12,738 unborn babies’ abortion deaths at the time.

She predicted that state taxpayers will be forced to pay for as many as 12,000 unborn babies’ abortion deaths annually because of the legislation.

“House Bill 40 would undo a decades-old ban on taxpayer funding of abortion costing us thousands of lives a year,” Troscinski said.

According to the Pro-Life Action League, the bill also will keep abortion legal in the event that Roe v. Wade is overturned.
