Illinois Republican Governor Bruce Rauner signed a controversial bill into law on Thursday to expand state-funded coverage of abortions for low-income residents on Medicaid and state employees. The bill, approved by the state legislature in May, would also keep abortions legal in Illinois if the U.S. Supreme Court follows President Donald Trump’s call to overturn its landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that made abortions legal 44 years ago. Illinois’ Medicaid program has previously covered abortions in cases of rape, incest and when a mother’s life or health is threatened. The expansion would enable poor women to obtain elective abortions. The bill would allow state employees to have the procedures covered under state health insurance. Rauner, who had earlier suggested he would veto the measure, said in a statement that he had talked to woman around the state before making his decision.
