Key Words: Bruce Rauner on abortion: Income shouldn’t factor

Bruce Rauner, the Republican governor of Illinois, angered the more conservative bloc of his own party with a move on abortion policy this week.

Rauner—still stinging from the summer slugfest that included key Republican defections in order to pass a budget in the fiscally hobbled state—cited his desire for economic fairness around the controversial health topic.

‘I believe that a woman living with limited financial means should not be put in the position where she has to choose something different than a woman of higher income would be able to choose.’

The new law expands taxpayer-subsidized abortions for women covered by Medicaid and state employee insurance.
