On November 3, a huge event will take place in the United States, and its free to participants. All you need to participate is to be registered to vote, and then exercise that right.
Our vote says what direction we want our country to go. We can vote to continue the tremendous pro-life gains of recent years, especially the gains during President Trump's presidency, and the 100s of pro-life laws that have been passed by pro-life governors and state legislatures. Or we can vote to bring this progress to a halt by voting for candidates who will work against the unborn, conscience rights, and religious freedom.
In 2010, President Obama told assembled Republicans that "elections have conse-
quences." We couldn't agree more. The election of President Trump has proven the truth of this statement over and over again, to the benefit of the pro-life movement. Let's keep this momentum going!

These billboards having been popping up around Illinois, including one on War Memorial Drive in Peoria. They are part of a billboard campaign by the Chicago Abortion Fund and are designed to alert pregnant women that their abortions may be covered by Medicaid.
In 2017, after promising not to do so, then-Governor Bruce Rauner signed into law HB40, a law that expanded public funding of abortion to include Medicaid recipients and those covered under state health care plans. The bill took affect January 1, 2018 and provides abortion funding for any reason through all nine months of pregnancy, and also contains a provision to keep abortion on demand legal in Illinois in the event Roe v. Wade is overturned.
Upon this bill being signed by the governor, Illinois became one of 16 states using their own funds to pay for abortion, sidestepping the 1977 Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds for abortion coverage through Medicaid except in case of rape, incest, and life endangerment.
Illinois is now one of the most abortion-friendly states in the Midwest. Abortion providers responded by opening four new abortion facilities, Carafem in Skokie, and Planned Parenthood in Flossmoor, Fairview Heights, and Waukegan.
Here's how our legislators voted on HB40:
Rep. Michael Halpin - Yes
Rep. Tony McCombie - No
Sen. Neil Anderson - No
