Pro-Life Youth Protestors Say Gov. Rauner Betrayed Them



CHICAGO (CBS) — Young opponents of abortion gathered outside the Thompson Center to denounce Gov. Bruce Rauner and the new law he signed this week that provides for taxpayer financing of abortion. They called the governor’s decision to sign HB-40 a grave disappointment. David Cordaro is with the organization Students For Life said:

“Governor Rauner betrayed us. He betrayed the Republican party. And he betrayed the pro-life generation.”

State Sen. Dan McConchie and Rep. Tom Morrison are two legislators who say they’ve told Gov. Rauner he’s finished politically. McConchie said Republican lawmakers tried to convince Rauner to veto the bill.

Both McConchie and Morrison encouraged the youthful abortion opponents to find candidates who oppose taxpayer funded abortions and to work for them.
