CHICAGO – A group of abortion promoters joined together Monday morning to hold a press conference in Chicago blasting the newly-confirmed US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
At the podium alongside radical abortion defender Terry Cosgrove of Personal Pac and Planned Parenthood director Jennifer Welch stood Democrat gubernatorial candidate JB Pritzker's running mate State Rep. Juliana Stratton.
A tweet sent out by JB Pritzker's assistant press secretary Alex Hanns says the press conference was to "speak out on Brett Kavanaugh and reproductive rights in Illinois."
Pro-lifers are facing a dilemma in the Illinois gubernatorial race. JB Pritzker and his LG candidate Juliana Stratton are staunchly opposed to any restrictions on abortion. But Republican incumbent Governor Bruce Rauner betrayed prolifers when he signed into law a measure that forces Illinois state taxpayers to fund abortions for state employees and those women on Medicaid. He and his wife also gave $50,000 of their personal funds to support Planned Parenthood abortion clinics.
Only Conservative Party candidate Sam McCann says he is pro-life. McCann is polling at 4 percent – with little chance of breaking through the Pritzker/Rauner money walls.
Planned Parenthood put out the following video earlier this year – and included among the ones they intended to "pink slip" because they were not "pro-abortion" enough was Democrat Congressman Dan Lipinski. Lipinski narrowly defeated his Planned Parenthood-backed challenger in the Democrat primary with the help of pro-life Republicans that crossed over in the March election.
