(Chicago, IL) — A group of abortion opponents and conservative Illinois lawmakers says they’ll keep fighting a new law that expands access to abortion services. A Springfield judge has rejected the attempt by anti-abortion groups to stop a state law that is set to take effect with the new year. It gives abortion coverage to state employees and women on Medicaid, using public funds. Opponents say they’ll appeal the judge’s denial of an injunction to block the law. Critics claim the bill was technically flawed and that many taxpayers object on moral grounds to using tax money for what they estimate will be 30-thousand abortions.
