January 23, 2019 2:21PM CST
Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker says he wants Illinois to be the most progressive state in the nation when it comes to abortion. Pritzker yesterday signed an executive order that requires state agencies to move forward with a new state law that will have taxpayers pay for abortions in the state. The order covers both people who work for the state of Illinois and the nearly three million people who are on Medicaid in the state.
