Abortion tourism comes to Illinois.
Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) published their 2017 Abortion Statistics. Although abortion numbers
are decreasing across the nation you may note that the Illinois numbers are increasing. The statistics show
their were 39,329 abortions in Illinois in 2017. You will see that the numbers are up from 2016 where Illinois reported
38,382. These numbers reflect an increase of about 0.5%, however, abortions on out-of-state residents increased by 21.6%
There are many reasons for this increase, among the most important is Terry Cosgrove’s Personal PAC which spends large amounts of money in elections to maintain a Pro-abortion majority in Springfield.
Another reason Illinois is critical to the abortion industry. HB40 allows abortion in Illinois to be paid for by Medicaid (that is
taxpayer funding of abortion on demand). No wonder the abortion tourism in Illinois is thriving.
Planned Parenthood (the Nations largest abortion provider) has targeted Illinois. They have promised to place 5 abortion
clinics across the state. Why, you ask, its all about money and Illinois is the abortion capitol of the mid-west.
