>>Group Blasts Rauner Over Vow To Veto Abortion Bill

An abortion-rights group is blasting Governor Rauner for vowing last week to veto an abortion bill. The Personal PAC released a 2014 questionnaire yesterday from Rauner in which he pledges support for the bill. The measure would ensure abortion remains legal in Illinois and also allows women to use Medicaid and state health insurance to pay for the procedure. The group’s CEO, Terry Cosgrove, said the governor betrayed them. He also accused him of lying to the voters about his position on reproductive rights.
